1. Am I required to purchase a surround or trim kit with the fireplace?

No, the updated Vector 38 includes the premium black safety barrier, a trim kit or surround is optional. Please note that without a trim or surround there will be a slight gap between the finish material and the safety barrier as shown in the main image. These items are an additional cost due to the wide range of prices for the different options.

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. The picture shows logs and stones, are those included?

The log and stone kits are optional accessories designed to enhance the look of your fireplace. You can find them and other media kits on the accessories page.

4. How is the fireplace vented?

The LV38 is typically vented using Napoleon's 5x8 venting components, you can find them here. We have assembled a complete vent kit for situations where the vent will have a short rise and turn to a horizontal termination (when the fireplace is installed on an exterior wall). If you need help designing the venting system let us know with an email or a phone call and we can assemble a custom solution for your situation.

    Thank you for your question!

  • how wide is the napoleon vector 38

    The Vector 38 is 53-5/16" wide. Thanks for your question!

  • how fuel efficient are natural gas fireplaces?

    That depends greatly on the specific model of the fireplace.  There are also different types of efficiency measurements.  Probably the most common measurement is steady state efficiency, which measures the efficiency of the fireplace once it has warmed up to it's ideal operating temperature.  Depending on the model, steady state efficiencies typically range from 70-80% efficiency ratings.  Thanks for your question!
