    Elie
    from MA asked:
    February 4, 2017
    By adding the fresh air kit and blower, will I reduce the odor from the vent free fireplace?
    1 Answers
    The blower and fresh air kit will have little impact on issues with odor when the cause may be additives used in the fuel supply (with liquid propane) or a lack of maintenance. The outside air kit will only help with odor when the fireplace is installed in an area too small for the fireplace's BTU rating.

    Joseph
    from Owensboro, KY asked:
    November 25, 2014
    I have a new home with a Napoleon GVF42N. The contractor installed an on/off switch and also gave me a remote. When I turn on the switch nothing happens. I can get the remote to turn on the gas logs to high but the fan will not come on, even after the fireplace has been going for a while. What needs to be done? How can I adjust the flames on the gas logs? What do I need to do to get my fan to work? How do I control the fan speed when it does start working?
    1 Answers
    The GVF42 operates via a standard millivolt gas valve. This means that remotely, you'll only be able to turn the fireplace on and off. No matter if you have the F45 or F60, neither remote will be able to vary the flame height or operate the blower. The flame height can be varied but will need to be done manually at the fireplace. The gas valve features a Hi-Lo regulator that can be rotated to increase or decrease the flame height. Depending on which blower you have installed, it will likely have a thermal switch which would require the firebox reach a certain operating temperature before coming on. There will also likely be a manual control, potentially a rheostat, on the fireplace for controlling the fan as well.

    from Rock Hill, SC asked:
    November 5, 2014
    I need a 42" vent free fireplace complete with a firebox, burner, and log set (natural gas). I also need the ability to turn on/off with an a/c powered wall switch. I don't want a remote or blower. I want to just flip my electrically powered wall switch and flames appear. What would you suggest?
    1 Answers
    The model you are viewing currently is actually the best vent free 42 inch unit we carry to suit your application. The fireplace has the ability to be controlled by a wall switch, although the system is not powered by 110 volts. The switch would use a millivoltage circuit from the gas valve of the fireplace itself.

    How many square feet will this unit heat?
    1 Answers
    Napoleon states that this unit will produce 30,000 BTU of heat. Based on some rule of thumb, this unit will effectively heat just shy of 800 square feet. This approximation will be affected by the size and shape of the room in which it is installed along with the overall air-tightness of the home.

    Is it OK to mount a television about ten inches above this fireplace? Also, What blowers do you sell that will work with this fireplace?
    1 Answers
    Because of the vast amount of heat generated by this vent free appliance, I do not recommend installing a television closer than two feet to the opening without either recessing the television to be flush with the wall or using a noncombustible mantel shelf between the unit and the television to divert heat. The two accessory blowers for this model can be seen under the "Accessories" tab on the main item page. Both offer variable speed and thermostat control.

    I would recommend this item to a friend.
    Easy To Maintain
    There really is only one thing that I would decide to change if I was going to improve this product, and that would be the addition of an air damper that could be easily and completely closed. Otherwise, I found this heater was very easy to get things warmed up and maintain the heating output. The temperature control is not very precise, but on the flip side, it is easy to light. Additionally, this heater possesses a large surface area and it is also quite easy to clean.
