Direct Exhaust Vent

Direct Exhaust systems take in room air to support combustion and exhausts combustion by-products (along with much of the heat) to the outdoors through a single vent pipe usually through the roof or through a chimney.

Because they are relatively inefficient, compared to a Direct Vent or Vent Free system, most Direct Exhaust Vent fireplaces are rated as decorative appliances. They provide the ambiance of a fireplace without overheating your rooms.

  • Ideal for replacing a woodstove or oil burner eliminates handling solid fuel
