    If you're looking for a small but mighty fireplace, you should check out Empire's 28" vent-free fireplace insert. You can install it as a replacement for your existing unit, or you can install it as a separate fireplace altogether. It's not like it requires venting, so you can keep labor and installation costs down without sacrificing heating efficiency. What's more, this unit is mobile home approved and comes with a 5-year limited warranty. Choose between natural gas and propane for fuel, but no what matter which option you select, your appliance comes with a protective barrier, an elegant black reflective liner, and an on/off switch for your convenience. You just can't go wrong with this versatile option!

    from Renton, WA asked:
    November 12, 2019
    Does this unit require electricity or can it start and operate if the power goes out?
    1 Answer
    No, this unit had a standing (millivolt) valve and will function with or without power. The fan (if installed) would be reliant on the power however so in the event of a power outage, the fan would not operate.
