    What is more beautiful than a real fire in a fireplace where family and friends gather? Vail's gas fireplace is vent-free and can be installed on walls where vents would not be accessible. Its efficiency will save you money while you warm your room. One of this Premium fireplace's features is the remote-ready control system. Remotes are available to purchase and used with this system so that you can control your fireplace from the comfort of your chair. For your peace of mind, an oxygen depletion safety sensor is part of the fireplace system. The 5-year warranty lets you know that your fireplace is another quality product from Empire.

    Is this a stand-a-lone unit? What are those nubs shown on top?
    1 Answer
    This unit is designed to be installed into a combustible enclosure built of dimensional lumber or into a site built mantel surround. The spacers along the top of the unit are stand offs that are designed to maintain proper clearance to combustible framing.

    from Dallas, Texas asked:
    November 25, 2016
    Does this unit have a full front glass enclosure, or is a chain link front an option?
    1 Answer
    The vent free design means that the front will not be covered with glass, but will have a fine mesh barrier screen instead.

    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.
