Questions & Answers

Ask a Question
  • Are you able to remove the safety screen to roast marshmallows?

    The safety screen can be removed, but we do not recommend using a gas fireplace to roast marshmallows.  Thanks for your question!

  • what is total signature command system? does this have upper and lower lights that can be controlled by remote?

    It's Monessen's name for their control systems including the ignition, flame control etc.  The under burner LED lights are controlled with a push button control at the fireplace itself, not with the remote.  Thanks for your question!

  • can these fireplaces be use during a power outage?

    Yes, the Artisan 42 has a battery back up that can be used during a power outage.  Thanks for your question!

  • Is there clear glass on the facade of the fireplace as well as the screen? Are stones available instead of the log kit? Do I need to purchase flex liner Pipe? Is a remote on/off controller included?

    No, there is only the safety screen, no glass face.  Yes, there is a stone kit available.  No flex pipe is needed as this is a vent free fireplace.  Yes, a remote control is included with on/off function and flame height control.  Thanks for your questions!

  • whar does the mesh screen look like?

    The mesh screen is similar to a window screen.  Here's a link to the best close up picture I could find, it's not great, but if you look close, you can see the mesh inside the frame.  Thanks for your question! 

  • what is a fireglass kit?

    The fireglass kit is a package of crushed glass used on the base of the fireplace around the burner.  The LED lights shine through the fireglass.  The Diamond fireglass is included with this model.  Thanks for your question!
