Innsbrook Vent-Free Fireplace Inserts feature an all-metal construction for outstanding durability, black slat louvers (with decorative louvers available), a built-in variable-speed blower that automatically cycles on and off to quietly circulate warm air and a front screen to keep objects clear of fireplace interior. Rated at 20,000 BTU (Small) or 28,000 BTU (Medium), the Innsbrook insert is 99-percent efficient to warm your room quickly on even the coldest days. Innsbrook Vent-Free inserts feature Banded Brick Liners, with hand-painted ceramic fiber logs nestled atop the variable-flame burner, to create an exceptionally attractive traditional fireplace. The unique Slope Glaze Burner produces natural flickering flames that dance and delight – warming your heart as it warms your soles. Innsbrook inserts are offered with a Hydraulic Thermostat Valve or with a Millivolt system. Both allow the insert to operate without electric power to provide heat during power outages. The Hydraulic Thermostat Valve system operates by raising and lowering the flame (down to pilot, if necessary) to maintain a comfortable range around your manually selected temperature. The Millivolt system can operate with an optional remote, a wall thermostat, or even a programmable remote control thermostat.
Innsbrook Vent-Free Inserts require a surround kit to conceal the original fireplace opening; choose an old-world style three-piece cast iron surround with rich details at the corners, keystone, and columns, or a steel surround with either 6-inch top and side panels or 6-inch top and 3-inch side panels. For installations where your Innsbrook insert does not rest on the hearth, we offer a 1 5/16-inch bottom cover to complete the surround. To cover larger hearth openings, install the optional shroud. At 48 inches wide and just under 38 inches tall, it provides a clean transition between the surround and the existing fireplace; we offer a 2-inch bottom cover to complete the shroud. A contemporary three-sided surround, four-sided matte black metal surround & tempered glass surround are available for finishing your Innsbrook.
With four styles and four finishes from which to choose, decorative louvers help create the perfect look for your Innsbrook fireplace insert. Finishes include: matte black, contemporary hammered pewter, traditional polished brass, and modern stainless steel. In addition to the traditional slat louvers, we offer a graceful arched pattern, a geometric Mission pattern, and an elegant leaf pattern. All decorative louvers install in seconds without tools. Decorative Louvers are a special order item with a 3-5 week lead time.
An Innsbrook vent-free gas insert turns your existing wood-burning fireplace into an attractive and efficient gas-fired heat source; a wood-burning fireplace sends more than half of its heat up the flue, creating negative pressure in your home, which draws outside air through gaps in doors and windows that actually makes your home colder. A wood fire can also create ash and fumes that dirty your home and aggravate your allergies. Lighting and managing a wood fire takes time and work – and more than a little patience to get it right. Your Innsbrook fireplace insert lights at the flick of a switch to produce consistent, reliable heat, even when electric power fails. Add the convenience of an optional thermostat, wireless wall thermostat, remote control, or thermostat remote control, and enjoy all the comfort of a warm cozy fire without the mess and hassle of wood.
Vent-free fireplace inserts are classified as zone heating appliances. Zone heating is inherently more efficient than your existing wood-burning fireplace or your central furnace. A central furnace wastes 20 to 30 percent of the heat energy through ductwork losses and sends much of the remaining heat to unoccupied rooms. Zone heating creates and transmits heat directly into the room. This lets you turn down your whole-house thermostat and use your fireplace insert to efficiently warm the room you use most. Vent-Free technology is simple to install (because it eliminates the need for venting entirely) and has proven safe, being used in homes for over 40 years. Vent-Free appliances are designed for supplemental and emergency heat. All Empire Innsbrook vent-free inserts feature an Oxygen Depletion Sensor (ODS) to instantly shut off the burner if oxygen levels drop to unsafe levels.
