What do you mean by "direct vent" in the context of a small gas fireplace insert? What are the venting requirements? The existing brick chimney is about 8"x 8".

Our Answer:

Direct vent fireplace inserts utilize outside air for combustion, as well as venting their exhaust gases to the outdoors. This is accomplished by the use of a pair of 3 or 4 inch diameter aluminum liners. These will be routed up the chimney, side by side, and attach to a termination cap that will cover the top of your masonry chimney. Because one liner carries air and the other vents exhaust, the front of the unit is sealed with a solid pane of glass and has no interaction with the air in the room. Because of their efficiency and venting design, these are the most popular style of insert we sell.
