    Are glass doors (both sides) available for this model? I have an indoor-outdoor configuration where I would like to use this, but obviously I cannot do so if the separate sides cannot be closed off in some manner.
    1 Answers
    No glass doors are available for this model and it is not suitable for an indoor/outdoor installation configuration.

    I am need of a double sided 36 inch gas fireplace for the exterior of our home on a covered patio. Is this Empire Vail Premium vent-free natural gas see-thru fireplace OK to use outside? Also, if we wanted one that did require a vent/chimney, do you have one that you could recommend?
    1 Answers
    This unit is not approved for use outdoors. We would suggest the Superior 43" Linear Direct Vent Single-Sided Or See-Thru Fireplace - Natural Gas - DRL4543TEN, which has a kit available under the accessories on the unit's page that would allow for indoor/outdoor use on an exterior wall.

    We want to place a peninsula ventless gas fireplace between the new master bath and new master den so both areas can benefit by it. The square footage is approx 400 with an open 4' connection into a 13' x 14' area which is connected to the master bedroom by a 4' opening. Is this area too small for this idea?
    1 Answers
    Based on the description of the space, it could physically support up to 64,000 BTUs of appliance input. This is assuming there are 8 foot ceilings in the area. However, I would like to verify the purpose of the space. The term den does not usually pertain to a sleeping room, but your description of the area makes it seem like it may be just that. If it is, a ventless appliance would not be the way to go. Instead, a direct vent appliance would be the better choice, as this would eliminate the possibility of oxygen deprivation.

    How much heat does this fireplace produce? Is it enough to heat a basement room?
    1 Answers
    Vent free fireplaces are by nature the most efficient hearth appliance on the market today. As such, they do offer a substantial amount of supplemental heat to a room. The BTU output of this unit would allow you to heat approximately 1,000 square feet, as long as the unit is centrally located in the space and there is some form of air circulation employed.

    I'm looking for a see through fireplace that can be placed in a wall between the living room and kitchen so a view of the fireplace is seen from both the living room and kitchen, but also can be placed next to a gas stove/oven. Can this item do this? If not, is there a see through fireplace that can under these circumstances?
    1 Answers
    This fireplace can indeed be installed in the manner you want, but you do need 9 inches of clearance on either side of the fireplace before your next appliance. The fireplace would need to be installed flush with the walls on both sides as well. It is also strongly recommended that you look carefully at the manufacturer's recommended clearances which are listed in the owner's manual, which you can on this item page. Be sure to look at the sections of that manual that pertain to the item number you inquired about, because that manual is used for both see-through and peninsula models.

    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.
