    from NM asked:
    March 25, 2017
    Can you tell me the difference between VFP36BP30LN and VFP36BP70LN? Also, the 70LN states that it comes with a 5 piece log set, then says it does not come with a log set.
    1 Answers
    Both models include a log set, but one of the models (the -70LN) requires you to choose between one or two options. The difference between the -30 and -70 is the ignition type. The -30 model has a millivolt/standing pilot ignition, whereas the -70 model is an electronic ignition/intermittent pilot system.

    Can the vent-free Empire Vail Premium natural gas fireplace be used at a high altitude?
    1 Answers
    This heater works best at altitudes of 4,500 feet or lower. The absolute maximum is 6,000 feet. Above 6,000 feet, you will experience random pilot outages and the unit will not burn as cleanly as designed.

    Would this work on a screened porch?
    1 Answers
    Unfortunately, no. Any hearth system that will come into contact with moisture from the outdoors has to be tested and listed for outdoor applications and these systems are constructed of stainless steel. Please view our selection of Patio Fireplaces to view options that are safe to install on a screen porch.

What style of remote is available for use with this unit?

    Adding the Empire Battery-Operated Remote with Thermostat Control - FRBTC will turn the burner flame off and on according to the temperature set with the remote transmitter.

    I have this Empire Vail Premium vent-free fireplace in natural gas. We have moved and I need to use it with propane gas now. What do you sell that I can put in my fireplace so I can use it with propane?
    1 Answers
    Unfortunately, this manufacturer does not offer a conversion kit to switch between fuels. Because of the potential dangers of an improperly converted vent free fireplace, the manufacturer certifies the unit to burn only on the gas it was originally engineered for. I am very sorry for the inconvenience.

    Tony
    from Arroyo Grande, CA asked:
    May 24, 2015
    Do all vent-free fireplace units come with a glass face? Is there a screen over the glass, per the barrier code? If doors are chose, do they have outside burn barrier screens? Do es the screen need to cover any metal, or only the glass? Is there any reason this Empire Vail premium vent-free gas fireplace cannot be used on a covered patio? What term do you use to indicate that there is no constant burning pilot light?
    1 Answers
    This unit is vent free, and as such has no glass on the front. The doors listed as accessories will be entirely decorative and will be screened. A unit with a glass front that would require a barrier screen would be a decorative unit. We would not suggest using this fireplace under a covered patio as it is not rated for outdoor use. Electronic ignition is indeed the term used to indicate that a unit does not have a standing pilot.

    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.
