Empire Vail 36 Peninsula 3-Sided Vent-Free Gas Fireplace with Banded Brick Liners

Empire Fireplace Authorized Dealer

Empire Vail 36 Peninsula 3-Sided Vent-Free Gas Fireplace is a clean-burning fireplace that features an oxygen depletion sensor to optimize safe oxygen levels. This traditional-looking fireplace with Banded Brick liners is enclosed by a 3-sided junction box with fixed screens for safe viewing. Its slope glaze vista burner can utilize Natural Gas or Liquid Propane.

While sporting a traditional look, this vent-free fireplace is packed with modern features. It employs oxygen depletion sensor technology to continuously monitor the air in a room and will automatically shut off the gas whenever the oxygen drops to an unsafe level. The burner is integrated with Millivolt system, a remote-ready ignition system that can be easily ignited using a control knob and a switch. Choose your fuel source - natural gas or liquid propane.

The Vail 36 Peninsula comes in a 3-sided junction box with fire screens for safety and Banded Brick liners as a backdrop for its flames. This stunning fire feature is the perfect heat source for large indoor spaces. It can provide up to 38,000 BTUs of heat. For safe operations and optimal performance, a 24-inch refractory log set is required and sold separately.

Enhance the look of your fireplace with various available accessories. Top and base mantels are available to house your fireplace and you can decorate it with doors, frames, louvers, and bottom trim for a more complete look. An extended hood is available and a required accessory when using thick surrounding materials such as stones or bricks. For control options, different handheld remotes and wall switches are available and can be purchased for your convenience. 

Enjoy the view from any angle with the Empire Vail 36 Peninsula 3-Sided Vent-Free Gas Fireplace! Its high heat output will provide you a relaxing ambiance and comforting warmth while ensuring your safety with its oxygen depletion sensor.

        Excellent Value

        Good price for a quality unit. Easy install and set up. I see no advantage to the higher priced units that are comparable.

        Heats Like Crazy

        After researching vent free gas fireplaces for a couple of months I chose this one. I wanted white and one that was not too big or too small and this is just the right size. I have a small 50 ish cottage and by the end of the day the low setting is heating the whole house. The electricity went out for about a hour and it sure was nice to have heat! I had professionals install it so I can't comment on that issue.

        Perfect addition!

        We bought this as a gift for my son's family. It was installed earlier this week and already in use. They love the fireplace. Not only is it beautiful but it is very functional. I am sure they will love it for many years to come. It arrived within a few days after it was ordered. We are 100% pleased with the whole process.
