Direct-Vent fireplaces are now the most popular type of fireplace sold nationally. These units have a sealed glass front face, and the double-wall chimney provides combustion air for the fire as well as exhaust from the burning process.
Direct-Vent fireplaces are popular because of their high efficiency and their beautiful burn characteristics. Their design as a sealed combustion system results in a clean, efficient fireplace that does not communicate with your room air.
The chimney can be vented vertically with a short stack through the roof, or it can be elbowed 90 degrees and vented horizontally out of a vertical wall and terminated.
Because the Direct-Vent fireplaces are vented, they can burn dirtier than a vent-free fireplace and the result is burning characteristics more like a natural wood-burning fireplace in the traditional models. The long, narrow, contemporary linear-burn models have become very popular as well.
The drawback to most buyers in our market is the sealed glass face and the required barrier screen to prevent exposure to the hot glass. Once you get past that detraction to many, everything else about Direct-Vent fireplaces is a big plus.
