Contemporary Loft Series Burners

Loft Burners deliver a contemporary look with an artistic flair – by itself or accessorized to suit the room. Choose decorative tops and firebox liners, in reflective black or brushed stainless steel, and crushed glass in black polished, blue clear, and clear frost.

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.  Because IP Loft Burners include a thermostat remote and may not be installed as decorative appliances, a non-thermostat remote is available.

  • 18, 24 and 30-inch Vent-Free Burners – up to 40,000 Btu
  • Millivolt models include an on/off switch but will operate with Empire remote controls and thermostats
  • Intermittent Pilot models include a variable flame height thermostat remote control with 30 percent turndown (for vent-free installation only)
  • Special 10,000 Btu Millivolt model for bedroom applications (where allowed by code)

A Vent-Free system uses room air for combustion and delivers 99.9% of the available heat energy directly to the room. Vent-Free systems have an unmatched safety record, thanks in part to their clean-burning technology and their Oxygen Depletion Sensor, which instantly shuts off the valve if oxygen in the room drops to and unsafe level. Because no venting is required, Vent-Free systems offer more installation options.

Vent-Free systems are limited to 40,000 Btu and must be operated as supplemental heating sources in conjunction with a central furnace that circulates air.

Advantages:

  • Unmatched efficiency – 99.9%
  • Offers the most installation versatility
  • Usually less expensive to buy and to install
  • Can operate with a remote or thermostat
  • Most systems can provide live-saving heat during a winter power outage
  • Choose fireplace, insert, heater, cast iron stove, burner and log set, or contemporary burner
