What is the difference between a direct vent gas fireplace and a typical vented or unvented (vent-free) gas log?
Direct vent gas fireplaces are the ultimate choice when you need heat! The direct vent firebox has a burner system and logs that are surrounded by a hollow area. Room air is drawn into the hollow area around the combustion chamber by a circulating fan. The air is heated and then blown back into the room, so the room air continues to get warmer and warmer as it is cycled through the system. The air from your room never comes in direct contact with the fire, so there is no exhaust or fumes coming into the house. This makes the direct vent gas fireplace system is an extremely efficient heat source.
How does the venting work?
Direct vent fireplaces use a unique technology that incorporates a dual venting system. The firebox itself is closed off to the room with an air-tight glass front that is covered by a protective flat wire mesh (so you don't burn yourself on the hot glass). 2 flexible vents connected to 2 holes in the top of the firebox. The venting is run all the way to the top of the chimney and held in place with a special cap. One of the vents draws fresh air down the chimney to feed the gas fire while the other vent gets rid of the exhaust up the chimney. Unlike burning a real wood fire or natural vent gas fireplace, the sealed combustion system prevents the fire from drawing hot air out of your home and sucking in cold air to replace it. The venting needed is an inexpensive flexible aluminum vent very similar to what is used to vent a dryer. We do not supply the venting since you can pick it up from a local supplier.
