A direct vent system is a very efficient alternative to a traditional gas fireplace. Direct Vent Fireplaces are factory built and their venting can be routed directly through a wall to the outside, using rigid or flexible venting.
Direct vent systems are either co-axial (as stated above) or co-linear; Co-linear Direct Vent Fireplaces are used to vent through an existing wood burning chimney.
Direct Vent fireplaces function by drawing fresh air into the firebox from outside, which makes a distinct difference from a traditional masonry fireplace or insert. Zero-clearance direct vent gas fireplaces are used in homes where there is no existing fireplace. This improves efficiency, maintains the air quality and distributes heat evenly throughout your room, eliminating drafts or cold spots.
One of the most attractive features of a Direct Vent fireplace is that they can be operated without electricity! Electricity is needed to power the blower and other accessories, but a self-generating millivolt system or regular batteries can power the burner and flame control. That’s what makes a Direct Vent Fireplace popular choice among buyers. Direct Vent Fireplaces can also be installed with top, rear, or 45 degree venting, depending on the model.
Direct Vent Fireplaces are installed using a vent system that incorporate either rigid, or flexible vent pipes, one inside the other. A flexible vent system allows installers to maneuver around obstacles, such as joists, beams or wall supports. Flex Vent is easy to install, and there are fewer pieces and connections needed when put together.
