You'll get the included ultra-quiet, variable speed blower, a built-in thermostat for precise temperature control, and a brick liner that provides a traditional masonry appearance.

    Besides the bells and whistles, though, this insert also comes with an Oxygen Depletion Sensor to prevent accidents during operation and a 5-year limited warranty for long-term peace of mind. Whatever your needs or expectations may be, the Innsbrook can tackle them all.

    Can this unit run on propane?
    1 Answer
    This model number was actually discontinued and we only have the natural gas version of this particular insert remaining. Empire has replaced this particular model with a more clean-faced version that would not have louvers, but the manufacturer also phased out this version of the Innsbrook featuring a built-in modulating hydraulic thermostat. I've provided a link to the current millivolt version here and the electronic ignition version here

    Does this unit come with a glass front? Where do the exhaust fumes go?
    1 Answer
    No, the front frame assembly on this insert is a mesh screen, not a glass front. This is due to the vent-free nature of the insert: it needs room air for combustion and exhausts back into the room.

    I would recommend this item to a friend.
    It is amazing, puts out so much heat and looks fantastic
    I bought model VFP281N73LP-1 which they had to order as they do not stock it. I ordered the cast iron surround which looks amazing. I ordered the programmable remote which I love. This stove has two settings on pilot, Intermittent or continual. I leave mine on intermittent which means the pilot only burns when needed to light fire and not all the time just wasting gas. The remote can be set for temperature which is really nice. Just set it, turn on and forget.
    Proslooks, functionality, price, intermittent pilot option
