OVERVIEW

Empire manufactures log sets and burners to suit any application in sizes ranging from 18", 24" and 30", in Natural Gas and Propane.

Empire offer both ceramic fiber and traditional refractory concrete logs. Each log is hand-painted to bring out the rich detail.

Empire Vent-Free Burners are approved for use in any certified vent-free firebox. They may be also installed in an existing wood-burning fireplace, with the damper closed, to operate as a vent-free heating system.

A vent-free Millivolt Loft Burner may also be installed as a decorative appliance in a vented fireplace to provide ambiance and light – but without the heat. In a vented installation, the burner cannot be operated by thermostat, and the flue damper must be blocked open.  A damper clamp is included with all Loft burners.

Traditional Vent-Free Log Sets

From the curve of each log to the height of the stack, Empire Log Set complements the burner pattern for a lifelike fire. Complete the illusion with one of our optional Ember Bed Kits and Platinum Glowing Embers.

Empire Vent-Free log set creates a consistent, controlled heat – without dangerous flare-ups or chilling die-downs. These gas logs warm your room quickly and efficiently while using about half the energy of a vented gas log.

Vent-Free Contour Burners 

These systems combine the burner and log set into one package.  Because they require a minimum of just 12 inches firebox depth, these compact systems fit easily into most fireplaces.

  • 18, 24 and 30-inch Vent-Free Burners – up to 40,000 BTUs
  • Millivolt (VFDR), Manual (VFDM), and Thermostat (VFDT) models
  • Special 10,000 Btu Millivolt model for bedroom applications (where allowed by code)

Whiskey River Log Set
The Whiskey River Log set features the same burner and ember package as the Flint Hill but with chunky, hand-painted Refractory logs. The Whiskey River set delivers rich warmth and bold looks to complement any style. The Flint Hill and Whiskey River are also offered in 10,000 Btu models for bedroom applications, where allowed by code.

    • Researched and ordered my fireplace from US FIreplace Store. Pricing was a fair value however, the customer service was EXCELLENT! I had an issue with the direct vent venting. I called US Fireplace and the correct items were sent out the next day AND Janessa stayed on top of my return authorization and sent me the permissions and documents I needed to return the incorrect item and no cost to me, including return shipping. Overall, I am a very satisfied customer and my fireplace looks and operates flawlessly. I am glad that I selected US FIreplace to source my direct vent fireplace. Thank you for the great service.

    • I had placed an order, through Lowe's Home Improvement, for an Electric Firebox: Revillusion RBF42. Ordered 1st part of January. Was told I would have it in 3 weeks. When checking to see is it came in, was told it was delayed to 3/15. Was then told is was delayed until 4/25. Waited until 4/27 to check on it. Was then told it was now delayed until August. This firebox was going in a new Sun Room addition. I could not get my final inspection until the Firebox was installed. I went on line and googled for this same product. US Fireplace Store web site was given to me. This was on a Saturday. I call and reached a very nice man. Explain what I was look for. He checked and told me they had 30 of them in stock. I almost fell out of my chair. I clarified with him the product I was wanting. I ask how soon could I get it. He told me it would ship today. Again, was amazed. It arrived on the following Monday. What a pleasure and a relief working with US Fireplace Store and their employees. Exceed my expectations.

    • Great prices, quick delivery and fast hassle free services on the issue I encountered. I had purchased an electric fireplace unit that would not fit into the existing fireplace space. With one email I was able to get the wrong fireplace refunded and picked up at my home at no extra cost and the new one I purchased and delivered free of charge. Great company.
