Can I cook food on Regency products?
The top surfaces of Regency stoves get hot enough to boil water or keep soup simmering. However, you should never try to cook food on open flames, since you risk damaging the logs or other equipment, and you will void your warranty. You should also never operate your Regency gas fireplace with the glass removed or the door open.
Can I install an LCD or plasma TV above a Regency gas fireplace?
Clearances to combustibles around and above fireplaces is not the same as clearances to TV’s and other electronic appliances. Televisions and electronics in general are manufactured and assembled using many variations of materials and are subject to damage from far lower temperatures than wood etc. Many of these materials can be affected by temperatures far lower than those approved and considered “combustible”.
To be safe when determining what clearances are required from a TV or other electronic device to a fireplace, you should find out from the manufacturer/distributor of the component, not the fireplace. Clearances to combustibles around and above a fireplace can be well within certified specs but could still possibly be too close for TV’s and other electronics.
Can I set my fireplace to shut off when the room reaches a certain temperature?
Yes. A Programmable remote control or thermostat will give you this feature. A programmable remote control or thermostat will monitor the temperature in your room and can be set to turn on or off to maintain a certain room temperature.
Can the glass on my fireplace be removed?
The glass on your Regency gas fireplace should only be removed when the fire is turned off and the unit has cooled down to room temperature. The fireplace must not be operated without the glass door securely installed.

How do I control the fan?
The fan is controlled by a dial (located on the top left-hand side of the faceplate for inbuilts, on the control panel for freestanding fires, and on fireplaces the controls are mounted on the louvres) which turns the fan on and off and allows you to adjust its speed. In addition to the switch, the fan is hooked up to a thermostat, so that it only operates within a predetermined temperature range. The advantage is that the Regency fan will never blow cool air, even if you leave it on after you turn off your appliance. Once the fireplace cools down to a certain temperature, the thermostat will shut off the fan.
