Gary,

I have Valor-related questions, and since it is a "heating appliance," I hope it's not too off-topic to post here... ;-) I would've emailed, but your member page doesn't have that option.

I have read how happy you are with your Valor and that it heats 2700 sq ft. But you never share what model it is, and I was hoping I might get that from you, and maybe how you decided on that one.

I've been looking on their website, but am confused about where to start and how to narrow down to what we need. The nearest dealer is a ways from me and I want to do some research and have ideas of what I might want before I am at the mercy of a salesperson. Our home is also about 2700 sq ft. Since it's 2 story, we might want something smaller than yours, though, so as not to be blown out of the main floor?

Thanks!

Glad to be of Service!

(Nothing worse than being at the mercy of a salesman)!!!

First question, Are you on Natural Gas or LP?

It makes a big difference in how low the fire can be turned down (LP can only be turned down about 50%).

The model Valor fireplace that I have had (Over 5 years now) is the Valor Horizon Series (534 xan).

Styling is called "Valor Classic Collection".

See it by visiting the link below.

Here are some of the threads about Valor fireplace that are in Garden Web.

As you will see from these posts, I'm my "Usual self" (IE quite chattie or should I say "Typie"? But I try to cover "All the bases" as far as info about the Valor.

The model I have has been replaced with this one.

New Model Horizon 534ILN

Go to the link below to see the info on the new model

More that likely You will be told

(You don't need a "Fan kit" for the fireplace)

I VERY Highly recommend the fan kit!!!

We had ours both ways, the whole exterior or the fireplace stays much cooler with the fan (except where the fire is),

When it's really a cold morning, the fan blows the heat right between your shoulder blades when ya stand next to the fireplace _that's important to "Senior citizen types"!

I think I have "covered all the bases" both here and my previous posts and if you have more questions, you may post them in the fireplace forum (If you like) as I visit that part of GW on a daily basis.

Good luck in your hunt, I hope you will be as satisfied with your purchase as we are, )_even after more than 5 years now)!

PS

Actually it is good you posted about the valor here in the "Appliance Thread". That will keep me too busy to do any more "Creative Writing" about Miele ovens and "Ticking Off"

Rococogurl I promise to do better "RG"!
