    Heather G
    from Pasadena, MD asked:
    September 13, 2018
    Does this glass cover the FP opening? If so, how does the heat reach the room?Does the optional screen get used in place of the glass? Is there a fan blower Variable speed?
    1 Answer
    Yes, the glass front does cover the opening. This is a wall-mount fireplace, so the air needed for combustion gets in to the firebox from the sides and underneath. However, there is no screen available for this fireplace at this time. Moreover, there is no blower included nor is one available for it.

    Liz D
    from NJ asked:
    August 27, 2018
    Does this unit give off odors that are undesirable? Like the smell of curing paint?
    1 Answer
    All new hearth systems will produce this odor during the initial burn-off phase and some ventless liquid propane systems will always produce an odor because of odorants purposefully added to the fuel supply for leak detection, however, these Napoleon ventless systems use catalytic tiles to filter out unwanted odors commonly found with most all ventless systems.

    from NYC asked:

    How many BTUs does this unit produce?
    1 Answer
    Since this is a vent-free gas fireplace, it will have about the same 20,000 BTU output as it does input. Vent-free units are 99.9% efficient.

    from Dillon, SC asked:
    September 11, 2017
    Does this require electricity? Can I put my television above it? Can I build a mantel around it?
    1 Answer
    This unit does require electricity, but it has a battery backup in the event of power outages. It is not recommended that a television be mounted above it without proper clearance and a mantel to deflect heat between the two items.

    February 21, 2017
    How long can you run the unit for to heat a room? Can it be used as a primary heating source?
    1 Answer
    Like all ventless hearth systems, you should not use this as a primary heat source and it should only be left on for 2-3 hours at the most.

    Joel
    from Golden, CO asked:
    March 17, 2016
    Can this fireplace be recessed into a wall slightly so it will not stick out as far?
    1 Answer
    Unfortunately, you cannot block the circulating vents at the top of the firebox, eliminating the possibility of a recessed installation. You may recess the fireplace in the form of an alcove installation, but this requires just over 5' of vertical space to account for the required clearances of 20" at the top and 13" at the bottom of the firebox.

    Does the rectangular surround of this Napoleon WHVF31 Plasmafire wall-mounted vent-free gas fireplace get hot?
    1 Answer
    The rectangular surround will indeed become hot to the touch directly above the opening. The remainder of the surround will be warm, but not hot enough to cause a burn.

    How many square feet will this heat? As far as installation goes, do I basically just wall mount this unit?
    1 Answer
    This unit can heat up 570 square feet. This would indeed mount directly to the wall. Aside from having a licensed plumber install the gas line, the installation is in fact quite simple.

    Michael
    from NJ asked:
    April 11, 2015
    In the wall directly behind where I intend to hang this Napoleon vent-free fireplace, there is electrical wiring. Is this a problem?
    1 Answer
    Aside from making sure you do not damage the wiring when installing the mounting plate, there should be no issues with this, as the unit has 0" of clearance to combustibles at the rear.

    Do I need a chimney for this fireplace and how many square feet can it heat?
    1 Answer
    This is a vent free gas appliance that does not require a chimney system. The 20,000 BTU output is enough to heat 571 square feet on average.

    Can this unit run off a 25 pound propane tank?
    1 Answer
    The unit could theoretically be plumbed to a small cylinder such as that but you would very likely encounter burner performance issues.

    Terry
    from NJ asked:
    September 20, 2014
    Does this gas fireplace require electricity for any function? Will it heat without electricity?
    1 Answer
    This unit features an IPI pilot assembly. This type of electronic pilot saves gas as the pilot light is only lit on startup of the appliance, instead of burning at all times. However, to power the electronic ignition, 110 volts is required. This unit must indeed be plugged in to house voltage to operate. It does, though, feature a battery backup which will allow it to operate in case of a power outage.

    1 Answer
    This unit does not include a propane tank. Actually, none of our fireplaces include a tank. All of our propane fireplaces are designed to be plumbed into a larger, more constant fuel supply - like an in-ground 20 gallon tank.

    Kevin
    from Austin, TX asked:
    October 26, 2013
    Can it be mounted as an ''in wall unit''? How much light does the unit gives off?
    1 Answer
    This unit is only able to be mounted upon the wall, as it has a heat exchanger that is part of the chassis along the top of the unit. Because of the glass front, the exchanger is necessary and cannot be covered. This unit has a relatively low, linear flame. As such, it will cast a dim orange glow across the room, but not enough to see by. It is a dim enough light that you could doze off too without being distracting. Page 5 of the downloadable product manual gives a detailed drawing of the units dimensions, with either the standard rectangular or convex surrounds.

    What is the difference between the pewter and stainless steel?
    1 Answer
    The pewter surround features a matte, smooth finish and uses a muted finish that is characteristic of pewter. The surround is also flat and does not project into the room. The stainless surround uses a high luster, brushed stainless steel finish. Also, this surround is convex and projects into the room, following a gentle radius.

    No, since this is a wall-mounted fireplace, you must choose one of the surround options in the drop-down menu below the pricing information on this page. This is required by the manufacturer for installation for safety reasons.

    Is it safe to hang a flat screen television over this fireplace?
    1 Answer
    Per the manufacturer, it is not recommended to put any electronic device over this unit. Since it is a vent-free fireplace, most of the heat comes out straight up from the opening. Most television manufacturers will void the warranty if it is installed above a heat source as well.

    September 29, 2012
    Is this radiant heat from the glass or does heat rise from the top of the fireplace? Is there an optional heat blower for this unit?
    1 Answer
    While this unit does radiate some heat through its ceramic viewing window, a great deal of heat escapes via heat sinks that are manufactured into the sides and top of the unit. The heat escapes via natural convection only, as no blower option is available.

    December 8, 2011
    Is electricity required to run the fireplace? Or just a gas hook-up?
    1 Answer
    This unit does indeed require the use of a 110V electrical outlet, in conjunction with the provided transformer for operation. The unit is provided with a battery backup that will allow the unit to operate in the event of a power outage, but the backup is not meant to be utilized on it's own, as the batteries drain quickly and would need to be replaced often.
