Heats Like Crazy
December 27, 2012
After researching vent free gas fireplaces for a couple of months I chose this one. I wanted white and one that was not too big or too small and this is just the right size. I have a small 50 ish cottage and by the end of the day the low setting is heating the whole house. The electricity went out for about a hour and it sure was nice to have heat! I had professionals install it so I can't comment on that issue.
Pros:
Beautiful, simple design and a nice size. It looks like a quality product that beongs in the house.
Cons:
Would like the flame to be a bit higher sometimes but it really doesn't distract from pleasure.

Beautiful Fireplace
September 4, 2011
We ordered this fireplace on line. It was a little scary with a large purchase as this. We had a perfect experience with delivery in 4 days, the entire order including thermostat was the right one for our fireplace thanks to the man who called us to tell me the correct one to order. (Tyler). We had it installed and are all set for the first frost in Maryland. Thanks efireplacestore. BB
Pros:
very impressive for the size, Nutmeg is a beautiful color.

Can a remote be added?
By Customer Service on December 26, 2012

Answer:
No, a remote control cannot be used with a modulating hydraulic thermostat model like this fireplace. However, this same vent-free fireplace is available with millivolt (remote-ready) controls. Please see both the natural gas and propane models below:

26" Vail 20,000 BTU Vent-Free Natural Gas Fireplace

26" Vail 20,000 BTU Vent-Free Propane Fireplace

These models do not include a remote, but you can see the available options to add one in the "Accessories" tab on each of those item pages.
