Empire's American Hearth Franklin Medium Vent Free Gas Fireplace Insert has the typical look of a wood-burning fireplace but is far more efficient. This ventless gas fireplace insert has a 99.9% heating efficiency rating, producing more heat than wood-burning fireplaces. An appealing classic fireplace is created by the included Banded Brick inside liner and hand-painted ceramic fiber gas log set. The included Oxygen Depletion Sensor will turn off the burner promptly if oxygen levels fall to dangerous levels. With a maximum output of 20,000 BTUs, this compact yet efficient unvented fireplace insert is excellent for practically any room in the house.

The Millivolt Ignition uses a standing pilot light without the need for electricity, providing steady, dependable heat even when the power goes out. With the addition of a thermostat, wireless wall thermostat, remote control, or thermostat remote control, you can conveniently maintain the perfect room temperature. The included variable speed blower helps circulate heat throughout the room.
