A Direct Vent Gas Fireplace is a versatile installation option for your home. It does not require a traditional chimney, and can vent horizontally out a sidewall or vertically through the roof. The direct vent draws its combustion air from outside while venting to the same outside atmosphere. This means that your fireplace will not be consuming warm house air, nor will it be competing with other appliances and furnaces for combustion air. Direct venting also eliminates drafts and heat loss associated with other fireplaces.Where traditional fireplaces can’t go and gas fireplace can.
