    will this stove work without electricity
    1 Answer
    Yes, though the optional blower does require electricity to operate if you are planning on using it. The burner itself runs off a millivolt/standing pilot light that does not use electricity.

    from Harelton, TX asked:
    January 14, 2016
    Do the flames of this Empire VFP30CA30 Heritage vent-free cast iron gas stove with porcelain finish hit and heat up the logs so it really looks like wood is burning? Do they glow?
    1 Answer
    Due to this being a vent free appliance, the flames will not come into contact with the logs so as to not produce soot or carbon monoxide. However, the use of rock wool ember media directly atop the burner will give the appearance of charcoal in front of the bottom front log to make it look more realistic.

    from Seattle, WA asked:
    December 31, 2015
    Can this Empire VFP30CA30 Heritage vent-free cast iron gas stove with porcelain finish be used in an exterior patio application? Also, can this unit be adapted for propane?
    1 Answer
    This unit is designed for an indoor installation only. The valve, pilot assembly, and other components of the assembly would not hold up well when exposed to the temperature changes and humidity. Vent free appliances in general are almost always going to be gas type specific, and this model is specific for use with propane gas only.

    Can I cook on top of this Empire VFP30CA30 Heritage Vent-Free Cast Iron Gas Stove with Porcelain Finish - Propane - VFD-30-CC30BP in case of a power failure?
    1 Answer
    Output of this stove is not sufficient to cook upon, as the unit primarily transmits heat through the glass front, as opposed to the top of the casting.

    October 21, 2015
    Does this Empire VFP30CA30 Heritage vent-free cast iron gas stove with porcelain finish require a fireproof mat under it or can it sit safely on hardwood flooring?
    1 Answer
    This stove does not require a hearth pad or non-combustible material to be set upon. With a 0" clearance to flooring requirement, you would be able to set this stove directly atop hardwood flooring.

    George
    from Dallas, TX asked:
    September 4, 2014
    Would this unit be suitable for a covered back porch outside?
    1 Answer
    The porcelain finish would hold up well in a covered outdoor environment, but this appliance is technically designed for indoor applications only. The issue is that pollen, dust, and mold in outdoor air can quickly built up on the internal air shutter and foul the oxygen sensor in the pilot assembly. As such, I cannot guarantee how well it would do.

    from Osceola Mills, PA asked:
    November 7, 2012
    Does this burner shut down when the temperature in the room reaches the control's setting? Or is it manually controlled?
    1 Answer
    This particular stove uses a manual gas valve which will only turn the unit on and off automatically when equipped with a thermostatic wall switch or remote. If not equipped with these items, the stove must be operated by hand.

    Love this stove!
    This amazing cast iron stove looks great! It arrived in perfect condition and was easy to set-up using the enclosed Instructions and Owner's Manual. We have an all electric HVAC system in our Texas country home, so it's nice to have this in place using our large propane tank source. It has a beautiful and richly colored mahogany finish and really cranks out the heat, even on the lower setting. I set it up in our living room using stacked stone slate wall and floor tile. As an earlier review mentions, the doors tend to swing open, but I cured that with a couple of small ceramic magnets from the local big-box hardware store. They are small, inconspicuous and hold the doors shut but allows them to easily be opened when desired. There is no glass in the doors, by design, but the front of the stove looks great whether they are open or closed. This Empire cast iron porcelain stove is perfect for us.
    ProsAppearance, heating capacity, realistic looking log and fire system included, online support and fast delivery by FedEx.
    ConsNone

    working great
    Installed the heater a few days ago and is working quite well. Purchased the optional fan blower which really helps put out the heat. Also purchased the wireless thermostat and receiver which is a nice combination. Be sure to follow the instructions included that enables the thermostat to communicate with the receiver.
    ProsAppears to have heavy well-built construction. Easy to assemble.

    Excellent Stove In All Respects But One
    The installer had no problem setting everything up with this stove. The logs are realistic-looking and the flame is pleasant to watch. The heat generated by this stove is excellent. I was able to stop using my heat pump to heat the house since the stove was installed and reduced my electric bill considerably. I have 9' ceilings and turn on the ceiling fans to move the heat around. In terms of overall value and functionality, this stove is an excellent value. The only reason I do not give a 5th star is because the two front doors on the stove will not stay closed. The stove is perfectly level, but the two front doors swing open and remain that way. I called the manufacturer but was not able to get any way to solve the problem. I ended up using a dark color wire tie to fasten the two door frames together and keep them closed. It's inconspicuous and I've not given it any further thought. Actually, there does not seem to be much logic to opening the doors, which are only a metal frame without any glass.
    ProsAppearance Performance Excellent functionality
    ConsInability to keep the doors of the stove closed.
