    Investing in a Small Innsbrook Vent-Free Gas Fireplace Insert equates to investing in the comfort and safety of your home. Read below to familiarize yourself with a few features this classically-styled insert can bring to your home that other inserts can't.

    First of all, this versatile unit can be installed as a zero-clearance fireplace or as an insert in your existing fireplace. The realistic hand-painted ceramic fiber logs create a great look in the hearth while the extremely efficient Slope Glaze burner cranks out up to 28,000 BTU's. You'll get the included ultra-quiet, variable speed blower, convenient remote-ready millivolt controls, 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.

    Matt
    from St Marys, Pa asked:
    January 30, 2018
    My original contractor that built the house put the propane and electric hookup on the left side of the insert (see attached image one). I have different contractor installing the framing for the insert now. In your Manual it says the hookups are supposed to be on the right side.(Attached image 2 is from manual) Is the contractor aloud to use a flex line to hook up the fireplace? (Or does he have to move the hard plumped line)
    1 Answer
    The literature is simply saying where the gas connection should be made on the insert and not where the actual gas line should be plumbed.

    How many BTU's does this Empire medium Innsbrook vent-free gas fireplace insert with millivolt controls put out if it is running full blast all day?
    1 Answer
    This unit has an input of 28,000 BTU's per hour. It is not meant to be run all day due to it's use of combustion air from the room during operation. It should not be used for longer than 3-4 hours at a time.

    Does the enclosed gas insert include glass door?
    1 Answer
    No. Since this is a vent-free unit, it will need to utilize room air for combustion. As such, there is no glass door on the unit nor is one available. The insert does come with a safety screen.

    Very Good Heat Output, But Loud Motor
    The unit was easy to install, but has a loud motor. The motor did not work when a licensed plumber installed the unit. After some troubleshooting, he discovered that one of the screws from the top base plate extended through to the motor impeller, preventing the motor from spinning. This was corrected and the motor started working, but it does have a humming noise.
    ProsEasy to install, but the installation manual for the remote was not properly written and included confusing schematic.
    ConsSome poor fitting parts and noisy motor.

    Fantastic Stove
    I can't say enough good about this unit. Installation went fast with no problems. Get is on sale before units go back to regular price. My installer said mostchain stores are not handling propane stoves this year because the supplierscannot meet the customers demand. So ordering online is the way to go.
