FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What is a vent free gas fireplace?
Vent free fireplaces are fireplaces that do not require any type of vent system. Instead, they are designed to burn clean and the combustion by-products allowed to flow into the room the fireplace is located in. Stringent requirements ensure that these fireplaces not only burn cleanly, but that they are located in rooms of sufficient size to ensure an adequate supply of fresh air is always available for the combustion process. A highly sensitive sensor is employed to turn off the gas to the fireplace should the level of oxygen within the area begin to deplete. The most obvious benefit of this type of system is that no heat is lost through the venting system making the fireplace virtually 100% efficient. Currently, these types of gas fireplaces can only be installed in some areas of the United States. They are not approved for use in Canada.
Are gas fireplaces safe?
Yes! All of our gas fireplaces must have the ability to shut off the flow of gas if there is no flame to burn it off. This is where the self generating millivolt system comes in. The millivolts energize a magnetic coil within the gas valve which holds the valve open. Should the pilot flame extinguish, the millivolts will stop generating, releasing the coil and closing the gas valve. Every Napoleon fireplace we manufacture is tested prior to shipping to ensure a 100% effective system.
Can I remove the safety screen from my fireplace?
No. The safety screen cannot be removed from the unit. The law states that all units manufactured since 2015 must have a safety screen. We want to ensure that you and your family are safe, as the glass on the fireplace can become very hot.
Can I use media kits from different fireplaces?
Unfortunately, no. Media kits and other items are tested and certified for specific appliances. If that media kit/element is not listed as an option for the product, you will not be able to use it.
I would like to put a TV above my fireplace, can I do this safely?
When it comes to putting a TV above the fireplace, we would suggest contacting the manufacturer of the TV to find out the clearances that should be met. Regarding some of our gas fireplaces, there is a section in the manual for TV clearances that we have tested to ensure the TV will not melt if installed as per the manual.
What should I consider when choosing a Direct Vent Fireplace?
Direct Vent Fireplaces can be installed almost anywhere in your home as they don’t require a pre-existing chimney to vent them. Many can be built into a surround of combustible materials when using a zero-clearance liner. Please consult with your Napoleon Dealer or a professional installer to ensure that materials are correct for the installation.
Will a Napoleon Gas Fireplace operate during a power failure?
Yes! All our gas fireplaces incorporate a self-generating millivolt system that operates independently from any outside electrical current. Only accessories such as blowers rely on house current for power and our fireplaces do perform effectively, even without them. If you have an electronic ignition unit you will need to put batteries in the back up in order for it to function as intended. Once the batteries are in the back up you will need to turn the fireplace on like you normally do!
