Questions & Answers

Ask a Question
  • Why is this not recommended for elevations above 4,500 feet? We are at 5,200 feet, so I am curious. Thank you.

    Oxygen content is reduced at higher altitudes and therefore the unit's oxygen depletion sensor is more likely to activate as the altitude increases. Thanks for the question!

  • what is the difference between vented and non vented linear fireplaces

    A vent free gas fireplace is an open system (with a safety screen) that keeps all of the products of combustion in the room.  Products of combustion include carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide, water vapor and more.  A vent free fireplaces uses the oxygen in the building as it burns.  There's also a slight odor associated with vent free fireplaces.  A vented or direct vent fireplace is a sealed system.  It has an exhaust that runs to the exterior of the building and an air intake as well.  This means that none of the air in the building is exchanged with the air in the fireplace.  You typically get plenty of heat from both types of fireplaces.  There's a blog post with a bit more information about what a direct vent fireplace is.  Thanks for your question!
