    The HOW Factor
    No expensive chimney construction is required! Made possible by direct vent technology, gas fireplaces can be vented directly through the wall to the outdoors through a dual-chambered single pipe. While it draws air for the fire from the outdoors, it also expels the fire’s combustion byproducts outside your home. Ingenious!

    Direct vent gas fireplaces can be installed almost anywhere in in a home where natural gas or liquid propane is available. Installation is flexible due to zero clearance construction, which requires minimal space between the fireplace and wallboard or wood (combustible materials). Direct vent has fireplaces are also beautiful, convenient and safe. They operate by the flip of a switch or remote control and there’s no ash to clean up.
