Direct Vent / Fireplace Inserts
Now you can take your boring, ordinary fireplace and convert it into
a fully functional heater by using a direct vent gas insert. This
option allows you to heat huge rooms for a minimal cost. The way
this works is that outside air is used for combustion, meaning the
room does not lose any air. Now add the realistic ceramic logs and
glowing embers and you have a cozy fire to enjoy.
The direct vent provides an excellent source of efficiency. Best of
all, the need for chopping and piling wood is over. Simply flip the
switch and your room becomes a toasty environment for pennies on the
dollar. Some of the advantages of a direct vent / fireplace insert
Fits easily with most factory-built and masonry fireplaces
Ceramic logs are extremely realistic
Optional remote control feature
Varying settings for BTU control
Generally, assembled, ready for easy installation
Oxygen Depletion Sensor (ODS)
Choice of LP or natural gas
The flexibility of a fireplace insert is one of the greatest benefits.
In most cases, your existing chimney can be used. You will also have
the choice of adding a blower designed to help distribute heat equally
throughout your room. Therefore, when trying to heat your home, this
method more than just works, it is cost efficient.
If design is a concern, you will be pleased to know that the stones
for the direct vents and fireplace inserts vary in color and material.
One of the most popular design choices is the bay front, which provides
a warm and inviting appeal, perfect for a romantic evening with that
special person, or for family enjoyment. Another popular choice is
the brick lining that gives an appearance of a masonry fireplace.
Most people look for ways to cut back on costs, especially heating
costs that have skyrocketed in the past couple of years. With direct
vents and fireplace inserts, the problem is solved.
