The Sapphire gas heater combines the beauty and strength of traditional cast iron stoves with the heating technology of today. It warms you with a TrueGlow ceramic burner and a new, highly realistic log set. The Sapphire boasts our advanced flame technology for maximum fuel efficiency and high output levels and our direct vent system with a sealed combustion chamber and two-way intake/exhaust. No warm room air is lost when outside air is drawn through the system to feed the fire. Direct venting offers more installation options. You can vent it up through the roof or out through a wall. It can go in almost any room, almost anywhere! You can add extra functional charm to your beautiful Sapphire stove with our optional warming shelves. The shelves are perfect for keeping a pot of tea warm or drying those wet mittens on a cold winter day.
