1. What is the difference between the ignition types?

Choose Millivolt ignition with standing pilot to provide heat, even in the absence of electric power, or Intermittent Pilot, which saves even more energy. IP systems can operate with a standing or intermittent pilot during power outages.

2. Why am I required to purchase a barrier screen with the insert at additional cost?

The insert is designed for use with this item. Without this item, your fireplace would not function correctly and would look incomplete. The item is an additional cost to allow you to choose which look you like best.

3. How will the insert be delivered? Will the delivery driver bring it into my house?

All inserts 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 delivery driver is only responsible for unloading the items from the truck, not to move them anywhere. For more information on the delivery process visit our FAQ page.

4. Where are the accessories for this insert?

You can find all of the available options on the accessories page.

5. How is the insert vented?

The insert is typically vented using DuraVent 3" venting components. 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.
