Nothing. Modern Flames makes it easy with the Orion Multi Electric Fireplace. Everything you need to operate & install the fireplace is included standard. 

FAQ & Common Confusions

1. FAQ: How do I order the 3 sided unit?"

A nice feature of the Orion Multi is that everything you need for any installation type or style is included standard with the fireplace. Exposing a side is as easy as removing a panel. 

2. FAQ: Do the flames really look that realistic?

Yes. Take a look at the video I recorded of the 3 different flame styles available with the Orion Multi. It's truly incredible technology from Modern Flames and provides an unmatched level of realism in an electric fireplace. 

3. FAQ: Can the Orion Multi be Plugged in?

No. The Orion Multi has to be hardwired. Regardless of whether you are wiring to 120V or 240V. 

Nowadays, many electric fireplaces give you the option to simply plug in to 120V outlet or to hardwire to 240V for more BTUs. And while the Orion does offer more BTUs at 240V, there is no option to plug in at 120V. 

You must hardwire and it should be done by a qualified electrician. 

4. Common Confusion: Heat Output

The Orion Multi has one of the most powerful heaters in an electric fireplace at 10,000 BTUs. But to achieve this heat output, the fireplace must be hardwired to a 240V outlet. 

If the Orion Multi is wired to 120 volts the max BTU output will be 5,000 BTUs. 

And that's all for the Orion Multi. Hopefully, this article helped answer or clarify any final questions you have. If not, please reach out to us!
