    Does the unit come with a blower? Could a glass door be used?

    1 Answer
    A blower is not included, but an optional blower may be added for an additional cost. Regarding glass doors, this will not be an available option or approved for use with a ventless fireplace as systems of this type must remain fully open to the living space.

    from Colorado Springs, CO asked:
    April 25, 2013
    How much heat does this fireplace produce?
    1 Answer
    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.

    Excellent Value
    Good price for a quality unit. Easy install and set up. I see no advantage to the higher priced units that are comparable.

    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.
    Easy install, looks great, see through design. Installation 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.
