 Direct Vent Gas Fireplace

Congratulations. You're thinking of going to a direct vent gas fireplace, accessory, or updating the one you have. I have used non-vented, direct vent, and most recently ventless gas all my life. These days particularly, it's a great choice for auxiliary heating (which is all that is allowed in some jurisdictions) or even your primary heating source, if what you're planning on heating is commensurate with the BTU output of your chosen device.

What is Direct Vent Gas?

Most basically, direct vent gas means that you have a gas appliance that draws fresh air from the outside, and then vents its combustion products outside as well. This is accomplished by using a sealed unit with a double pipe to the outside air. Fresh air comes in one pipe and burnt gas goes out the other. It's efficient, though obviously not as much as a ventless system.
