Direct vent fireplace

Ever wish you could enjoy the warm glow of an evening fire without the hassle of set-up and cleanup – and without having to invest the thousands of dollars needed to install a masonry fireplace?

You can with a Direct Vent Propane fireplace.

How a direct vent fireplace works

A direct vent (DV) system is a simple, glass-enclosed combustion box that mounts to your wall and uses propane to create a flickering flame at the click of a button.

The box uses two pipes that run to and from your unit – one to draw air in from outside to support combustion, the other to transfer exhaust air outside your home. A direct vent system – which can be installed in about a day – is typically hung along an outside wall to keep the pipe runs as simple as possible (a DV system can also be installed somewhere else in your home and vented through the roof).
