    Does this fireplace have a glass front? Also, does it have a blower and remote?
    1 Answers
    Like most vent free models, this unit uses a fixed safety screen rather than glass. There is a version of this unit that includes a blower and remote ready valve, which is the Empire Vail Premium Vent-Free Natural Gas Fireplace with Remote Ready Controls and Blower - 32 Inch. The unit can then be controlled by a remote such as the Empire Battery-Operated Remote Control - FRBC.

    Can a wall switch be used on this unit to switch the gas logs on/off?
    1 Answers
    This particular model uses a thermostatic valve and cannot utilize a remote or wall switch. The remote ready version of the unit will be needed in order to use any kind of peripheral control, including a wall switch. That version is the Empire Vail Premium Vent-Free Natural Gas Fireplace with Remote Ready Controls - 32".

    Does this fireplace come equipped with a set of standard logs or do they need to be purchased separately? I did not see anything listed in the "option" section.

    Yes, this fireplace comes with the log set included. A purchase of this item would include the firebox, burner and log set. Other options, such as a blower or the brick liner kit shown in the photo, are available in the "Accessories" tab on this item page.

    What's involved with installing the brick liner kits for this fireplace?
    1 Answers
    Installation of the optional brick liner is very simple. The panels are pre-cut to size, and you would simply slip them into place.

    Is this unit available with any options like the sassafras log set or the stacked limestone? How much is the remote if I got the remote ready model?

    Everything We Wanted in a Fireplace
    We've had our Empire Vent-free fireplace approximately 2 months now and it has done exactly what we needed it to do. We bought it as back-up heat for our basement in case the power ever went out and we were gone. So far, that has not happened, but we just got back from vacation and set it on low as back-up for our furnace. While we were gone, temps dropped to -18 below zero and 14 inches of snow was on the ground when we arrived home. Our home was toasty warm upstairs and downstairs. Kudos to our Empire fireplace.

    fantastic experience
    We ordered our fireplace on a Thursday and it was delivered the following Tuesday. The delivery man was very helpful in assisting us with it. When it was unpacked, we were more than pleased at the appearance of the fireplace. When it was all together and hooked up, we turned it on and it was just like being in a cabin in the woods with a real fireplace - so cozy. We are very pleased with the quality and the service from this seller. I would definitely recommend it my friends.

    Very Nice and Works Well
    This unit is doing a great job for the space we installed it in. The room is 20 x 30 and heats up nicely. The flames are nice looking and the fire is quiet. The fan included does not blow as well as others I have seen and is also a little noisy, but I've seen other units that the blowers are much more noisy than this unit. Installed the unit ourselves without any issues. The directions could be written a little better.
    ProsStock unit looks good and works well Flames look nice
    ConsNoisy blower Accessories look cheap so we did not install the optional doors The blower is temperature activated. I did not see that in the directions so when we first started the unit we thought it eas not working.

    Vail Premium Vent-Free Propane See-Thru Fireplace
    Well made unit. Installation is straight forward. Could use some better instructions for the burner unit regarding remote control options. Looks great when finished with optional trim kits.
    ProsEasy install, looks great, see through design.
    ConsInstallation of extruded outer frame is difficult and wimpy using supplied hardware. I drilled and countersunk some holes in the frame and used sheet metal screws to attach firmly.
