What does direct vent mean?
Posted by Elite Deals - Chris M. on 28 October 2013 12:43 PM

Our Answer:

Direct vent refers to a fireplace that is completely sealed from room air by using a pane of tempered or ceramic glass over its opening. The unit can usually be vented either horizontally or vertically and uses a coaxial vent pipe. The small inner pipe vents exhaust gases to the outdoors, while the larger outer pipe draws in air for combustion. These units are valued for their efficiency and the fact that they do not affect indoor air quality.
