1. Do I need to purchase a panel or trim kit with the fireplace?
No, these are optional accessories to enhance the look of the GX70. The fireplace can be purchased without adding any additional features, although most customers prefer to add a panel and trim kit to complete the look and feel of the installation.
2. How will the fireplace be delivered? Will the delivery driver bring it into my house?
All fireplaces are delivered via freight (tractor trailer truck) to the specified street address you provide us, we do provide free lift gate service with all freight deliveries.

The GX70 is typically vented using Napoleon's 5x8 venting components, you can find them here. If you need help designing the venting system let us know with an email or a phone call and we can assemble a custom solution for your situation.
With regards to prior question about zero clearance, I was wondering whether the 3inch (Side) and 6 3/4 (above) requirement is from the actual fireplace or the frame (since the frame adds several inches). Also does the 3 inch side requirement include the bottom of the fireplace too. Also just wondering whether the fireplace automatically comes with a frame?
Is this unit totally zero clearance? We would like to set it on a hardwood floor with out a hearth stone and wrap a wood mantel around the unit. No tile or stone surround.
This unit is not a zero clearance fireplace. The fireplace can be set on a hardwood floor without a hearth stone, but it must be finished with non-combustible material such as tile or stone. The requirements are non-combustible materials must be used to at least 3 inches on each side and at least 6-3/4 inches above the fireplace. Unfortunately, most of the fireplaces in this size have similar requirements. There are some Empire models available that only require 3 inches of non-combustible material above the fireplace and 0 inches on each side. Please let us know if you would like any additional information or of any other questions you may have. Thanks for your question!
