    Owning a gas fireplace couldn't be easier than with a Napoleon GVF36 Vent Free Gas Fireplace. Requiring no chimney or ventilation system, this fireplace provides you with complete and total freedom. And because it requires no clearance to combustibles, you can literally put this auxiliary heat source anywhere you have the space.

    Operating your gas fireplace is even simpler than installing it. Just connect propane or natural gas - this model can use both - select your heat setting and you're done. Now all you have to do is sit back and enjoy the warmth and inviting atmosphere. You'll also be happy to know that this reliable gas fireplace requires no electricity. As long as you have fuel you'll have access to efficient heat at the flip of a switch, making this fireplace an excellent resource during a power outage.

    Last, but not least, comes appearance. The Napoleon GVF36 Vent Free Gas Fireplace uses an innovative Yellow Dancing Flame burner system and ceramic Phazer logs to create a realistic, natural-looking flame. Even when your gas fireplace isn't in use, you'll be sure to notice the sophisticated elegance this model brings to a room.

    Efficient, attractive, and easy to use, the Napoleon GVF36 Vent Free Gas Fireplace is one of best vent-free fireplaces on the market. So go ahead, treat your family to the comfort and ambiance only a roaring fire can provide. You won't regret it.

    May 14, 2015
    Does this Napoleon GVF36 vent free fireplace require a hearth? The standard dimensions would require it to extend at least sixteen inches form the front of the opening and eight inches on either side. Also, when the fireplace opening is more than six square feet, the hearth should extend at least twenty inches from the front and at least twelve inches on either side. But not all fireplace require this.

    This item does not require a hearth. It can be framed directly into the wall, so long as all clearances to combustibles are met.

    Can I add protective glass to this fireplace? I am not sure how I feel about just having a screen. Also, are there any codes in Massachusetts that I should worry about?
    1 Answers
    Unfortunately, this unit is designed so that direct air interchange must occur through the opening of the unit. As such, glass is not an option. Up until 2004, vent free units were not allowed for installation in MA, however state law has changed to allow them. They must be installed by a licensed plumber in order to meet code.

    Can this unit be installed in an old brick fireplace opening so we don't need to line and vent through the chimney?
    1 Answers
    This model is a zero-clearance vent-free gas fireplace, not meant for installation inside an existing brick fireplace. Being vent-free, no chimney liner or venting is required. This application can be done, but there are no accessories made for it to cover the rest of the fireplace opening. You may want to consider a vent-free fireplace insert, and you can see our full selection below: Vent Free Fireplace Inserts

    I own a Napoleon GVF30 Vent Free Gas Fireplace which I purchased and had professionally installed. I have a problem keeping the unit on for more than a few minutes I have had several service calls and thermopile replacement but nothing seems to help. I have opened windows to let air in and it still does not stay on.
    1 Answers
    If the thermopile was replaced with a correct millivoltage unit and millivoltage was verified at the valve, the next thing I would check would be gas pressure at the valve. Improper gas pressure could be an indicator of a problem.

    Greg
    from Uniontown, PA asked:
    March 7, 2013
    We have been attempting to put the Napoleon GVF36 Propane in service. The main burner will not light from the pilot. Gas valve opens and flows to burner but I must blow a puff of air to light the burner. Burner doesn't want to burn all around. Gas pressures are correct. 12.7 inch and 10 inches when burner is working. Disassembled and cleaned pilot ODS, orifice, etc. according to manual. Everything seems to be in order, so what should I do?
    1 Answers
    Based on your gas pressure readings and the service procedures already performed, I would next check the adjustment of the air shutter. The fact that you are able to introduce oxygen to the burner to get it started indicates to me that the shutter may have been improperly set at the factory. High elevations can make the issue worse. For LP installations, the shutter should be set at 1/2 inch open. For higher elevations, open the shutter in 1/16 inch increments and observe performance after each adjustment.

    1 Answers
    This includes the firebox itself, the burner, and the gas logs. You must choose which set of louvers you want from the drop down menu, which will add to that price since they do not all have the same cost. You do not need electricity to operate this unit unless you purchase a blower.

    We apologize for the confusion; the logs are indeed included with this vent-free fireplace system. The answer I believe you are referring to lists the included parts with this item, which are the firebox, the burner and the log set. The mantel and upper wall cabinet shown in this picture are not included.

    What kind of propane regulator do we need to purchase when installing this unit?
    1 Answers
    A regulator that can supply the gas valve with between 11 and 13 inches of water column must be used. Depending on the gas pressure that is being supplied from your tank, you may need to use a pair of regulators, as most household gas regulators can only step down pressure by 1-2 PSI. However, there is usually a main regulator already installed on the tank that steps pressure down to the 2 PSI mark or lower.

    We had our GVF36 installed today. Is the pilot flame supposed to be about 2-3 inches long and make noise?
    1 Answers
    If the pilot frame reaches far beyond the thermocouple probe, the pilot may indeed be adjusted too high. The gas valve assembly will have a slotted adjustment screw which can be used to lessen the pilot output. However, this must be done in small increments, as the flame still needs to engulf the thermocouple probe.

    from new jersey asked:
    January 16, 2012
    I recently installed the fireplace and it worked perfect for the first 2 nights. The third night we hear a clicking after it turns on for a few minutes and then when it turns off. I thought it could be the metal contracting from the heat to the cool. Or could it be the ignitor? I have a remote control thermostat any suggestions?
    1 Answers
    Most likely, the noise you are hearing is the steel chassis of the unit expanding and contracting. This model has a standing pilot and uses a manual ignitor system that must be operated by hand and would not operate again on it's own. This ticking noise will usually subside somewhat with burn in time, but may still occur occasionally, especially if the unit is operated for longer periods at high burn.

    Indeed, it is. That installation would work well for Napoleon's GVF. Because this unit is ventless, the accessories you mentioned are really all that are needed.

    1 Answers
    Unfortunately, the price on the Napoleon GVF36 fireplace does not include that mantel in the picture. That mantel is available, and you can see it and other Napoleon mantels that can be used with this fireplace at the following link: Wood Fireplace Mantels Once there, look at the left-hand side of the page under the search options, and, under "Brand," click "Napoleon." This will show you our selection of Napoleon mantels, some of which will work for this fireplace. On each mantel's page, you will see an option for "Fireplace Model," and, if you see "GVF36" as an option, it will work with this fireplace. As you will see, there are other colors available besides the white.
