1. Do I need to purchase a face?

That depends on where it's being installed. The Artisan See Through can be installed on an interior wall as a clean face unit on both sides which does not require a face. If the fireplace is being installed on an exterior wall you will need to include the Stainless Steel Outdoor Kit with your order. You can find faces, trim kits and more on the Artisan Accessories Page.

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 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.

3. How is the fireplace vented?

The Artisan is a vent free fireplace and does not require any venting. Please check your local code as vent free appliances are not approved for installation in some states.

Questions & Answers

Ask a Question
  • The stone fireplace is being built on a 20x30-foot area covered deck. This fireplace will be 6-feet or so under cover and see-through with a TV above it on both sides (facing exterior couch on one side and a hot-tub on the other. It possibly could get wet, from strong rain - but not often. 1. Will this fireplace model work for this use? Can I install this into a stone fireplace we are building on our "covered deck" outside? 2. Also - why do I need a stainless steel it - can I just buy it as-is or do I need the stainless outdoor kit?

    No, this fireplace is not rated for outdoor use.  You would want something like the Carol Rose see through 48" outdoor gas fireplace.  Thanks for your question!

  • I am concerned after reading Q/A that the see thru only looks good from one side. I need a see thru replacement box inside our home between the family room and parlor on the opposite side. Is that available please?

    The Artisan looks the same from both sides.  The comment in the Q/A is in regards to an optional log set for the single sided model.  Thanks for your question!

  • Why is the log set only available for the single sided version of the fireplace?

    Each model of fireplace is generally designed with it's own unique components.  My guess would be that the single sided log set doesn't look good from the other side (unfinished) and a version for the see through was never developed.  Thanks for your question!

  • Can you get a blower for this unit

    No, there is no blower available for this model.  Thanks for your question!

  • Can you install drywall or shiplap board around the fireplace front or does it need to be a noncombustible material? How much clearance is needed?

    The fireplace includes a 5" section of noncombustible material which is installed above the fireplace opening.  While you can't drywall right up to the opening, you can drywall up to the edge of the fireplace and the upper edge of the noncombustible board.  The most common way this would be installed with drywall is with the wide black trim, which would cover from the fireplace opening to the drywall.  Please see page 10 of the installation manual for additional information.  Let us know if you would like additional clarification.  Thanks for your question!
