  • Does it have a blower option

    This fireplace does not have the option for a blower. Thanks for the question!

  • Is the remote included on the Plazmafire™ - WHVF31? Also I have a discount number in the fall but didn't use it, what would be the current number and how much will the discount be? Thank you

    The remote is not included with the Plazmafire 31.   You can choose from either the F45 on/off remote or the F60 on/off/thermostatic remote.  We are currently offering 15% off of retail, but we can't publish a coupon code, I'll send it in a quote.  Thanks for your questions!
