1. Am I required to buy anything else with the fireplace?

No, the built in series is assembled and can be installed without any additional components. It will need to be hard wired into the electrical system (wire and fittings are NOT included).

2. How will my fireplace be delivered?

The BI36 is shipped in a box via standard ground service (UPS/FedEx). The fireplace weighs under 75 lbs, we recommend two people to lift and move the fireplace.

3. Does this fireplace need venting?

No, electric fireplaces do not need to be vented, the heater works by electrical resistance which does not create any flue gases like a wood or gas fireplace.

4. What are the electrical requirements?

The BI36 requires a 15 AMP 120 Volt circuit, it is highly recommended that it is a dedicated circuit as additional electrical draw may trip the breaker.

5. Can it be used without turning on the heater?

Yes, the fireplace can function without the heater, providing just the flames. The heater does not function without the flames being turned on. The heater has three settings, off, 750 Watt and 1500 Watt.

6. How much will it cost to operate?

That depends on your electricity rates. The current average cost is $0.12/KWH, run on high, the BI36 uses 1.5 Kw/H so the cost would be around $0.18 per hour.
