The Napoleon Infrared 3 Gas Fireplace Insert offers many standard features including Napoleon's IRONWOOD log set that fills your firebox with beautiful YELLOW DANCING FLAMES. The Infrared 3 features Napoleon's advanced infrared technology and is perfect for smaller living spaces. The Infrared 3 is great for homeowners who want the cost saving benefits of Zone Heating (heating the room you use most) plus the benefit of replacing an old drafty masonry fireplace with an efficient heating source.
Why do I need to purchase a door and surround at additional cost?
The IR3 insert is designed with options to fit your particular style. The additional cost is due to the different styles, sizes and finishes of the doors and surrounds. Note--an interior panel is also required for the IR3N gas insert, unfortunately we can't show them here but they are available on the IR3 Accessories Page. Please call for additional information and custom surrounds.
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.
How is this fireplace vented?
The IR3 insert uses a 3" exhaust and a 3" intake. Since an insert is installed in a masonry fireplace, the 3" aluminum liners are typically dropped down the chimney. We recommend the DuraVent Co-linear Vent Kit. Of course, if you need any assistance in determining which type of venting is best for your situation, give us a call (844)635-5499.
What's the difference between an insert and a fireplace?
In the hearth industry, we refer to an insert as a fireplace that is being installed within an existing masonry fireplace. These units are designed to get hot, therefore they wouldn't be safe installed in a wall opening. A direct vent fireplace, or zero clearance fireplace has additional insulation and heat protection to allow it to be installed close to combustible materials such as wood, they are generally larger in size that inserts.
How do I know if my existing fireplace is big enough?
The minimum firebox opening needed is shown in the images above (21 1/2"H x 29"W x 13 1/2"D). When choosing your surround size we generally aim for at least a half inch of overlap on the sides and top.
Have a different question? Give us a call, email or chat.
Do you have a thin profile gas insert that can be installed in a new construction four season room. The room is 800 sq feet.
We do carry gas fireplaces as thin as 14". For a new construction, you are most likely looking for a direct vent gas fireplace which is built into wood framing, rather than a gas insert, which is installed in an existing masonry fireplace. Please give us a call (844)635-5499 or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with some additional details of what you are looking for and we can get back to you with some possible solutions. To give you a basic idea, the Napoleon Ascent B30 is a traditional direct vent fireplace and only 14" deep. Thanks for your question!
