Vail Vent-Free Fireplaces

At 99.9 percent efficient, the Vent-Free Vail Fireplace delivers more heat for your energy dollars – 32,000 Btu for the Vail 32 and 36,000 Btu for the Vail 36. Ceramic glazed pellets in the burner tumble and swirl the gas to produce a natural flickering flame.

The Vail 26 is perfect for built-in and custom mantel applications. Or choose one
of our standard cabinet or corner cabinet mantels, available in five finishes – cherry, dark oak, nutmeg, oak, and white – plus unfinished hardwood or oak.

The 10,000 Btu Millivolt and Intermittent Pilot versions may be installed in bedrooms, where allowed by code.
