How many inches are necessary from the top of a propane gas rear vented fireplace to the bottom of a flat screen television?
While this information is not normally specified in the product literature for most gas fireplaces, the mantel clearances that are provided should be used as a reference.

How much moisture will a vent free propane stove put into my room?
This will depend on the square footage and air exchange rate in your home. Modern homes are tightly wrapped and well insulated, which can increase the amount of moisture that will be trapped inside the home. This is why it is important to choose a ventless system which is appropriately sized for the cubic footage of the space.
To answer your question, a 30,000 Btu/hour ventless gas hearth system will produce about 1/3 gallon of water per hour. This equates to roughly seven gallons per day, if operated constantly.

Is it safe to run a propane gas fireplace throughout the night while asleep, i.e., unattended?
With proper installation, propane is no different than natural gas with regards to safety when operating a hearth appliance. Propane gas is heavier than natural gas, so match lit systems without a safety pilot would not be available with liquid propane as they are with natural gas. With all propane systems, pilot flame loss will result in gas flow being shut off through the valve. The safety concerns would be the same with either fuel type, but are eliminated with proper installation and maintenance.

I'm looking to add a propane fireplace to a 20' x 30' family room. The wall that I would like to install it on has a baseboard heater going along the bottom of it. Can this be accomplished without re-plumbing the baseboard heat?
Unfortunately, no. The baseboard heater will need to be removed before the unit can be put into position, as proper clearances could not be maintained between the appliances with the heater in place.

What are the differences between a firebox and a fireplace?
A fireplace generally refers to any unit that is complete with some sort of venting system and/or a gas burner assembly. A firebox is literally just a vent free chassis with no burner assembly or log set. Fireboxes are intended for you to be able to pick out a log set and burner assembly that you like, as opposed to being committed to a certain set used within a fireplace.

I am interested in putting a propane insert in an existing wood fireplace. I need it to be able to run without electricity if the power goes off, and to have a thermostat as well. It needs to be able to heat about 2700 square feet. What do you think the best value model would be? Actually if you can suggest a few, that would be good. It will be vented up the fireplace.

I am interested in purchasing a propane fireplace that I can hook up to a propane bottle. I think the 32" firebox is the most appropriate size. I want to purchase everything needed in one package and not guess if I got it right. Additionally I need a ventless model. Please help me find this product.
One of the most popular items we offer in the 32 inch, vent-free category is the Empire Vail Premium Vent-Free Propane Fireplace
. Empire products feature outstanding reliability, build quality, and log set detail. In addition, the 32k BTU output surpasses the heating capability of most other vent free units in this size, allowing approximately 900 square feet of space to be heated. This unit could be fueled by a 40 pound LP tank. I do not recommend using a smaller size, as fuel will not vaporize fast enough for extended use.

I am looking to add a propane fireplace to a new family room we are building. The room dimensions are 28' x 26' with 10ft ceilings. The purpose of the fireplace is to add character to the room while also being able to provide enough heat to "feel" the fireplaces presence.
We like traditional looking fireplaces, which options do you suggest?
A direct vent gas fireplace would be the best option to add both warmth and ambiance to the room. You would have the ability to vent the unit horizontally through an outside wall or a vertical vent stack can also be utilized. A popular unit that we offer is the Empire Tahoe Premium Direct Vent Natural Gas Fireplace with Standing Pilot - 36"
. The Tahoe is a very solid unit that offers excellent flame and log appearance. It is available in various versions that also offer electronic ignition, integral remote systems, and circulating fans. The unit on its own could effectively heat 75% of your room area.

Looking for a ventless that has a 12" depth.
Unfortunately, we do not offer a vent free unit that is quite this shallow. I apologize that I do not have anything shallower.
