The majority of gas fireplaces that you’ll find on the market today are direct vent fireplace inserts. Direct vent fireplace inserts utilize a double liner system installed into the chimney; one for exhaust and the other one for fresh air. Vancouver Gas Fireplaces carries Direct Vent inserts from Valor, Jotul, and more; explore our entire selection below.
What is a Direct Vent Fireplace Insert?
A direct vent gas fireplace insert is the most attractive and economical alternative to gas fireplaces. The insert uses the outside air for combustion instead of air within your home. This process eliminates heat transfer waste and significantly improves the efficiency of your heating system, saving you money on energy bills. Here at Vancouver Gas Fireplaces, we carry inserts from reputable brands such as Valor, FireplaceX, Jotul, and more.
What are the Benefits of a Direct Vent Fireplace Insert?
More efficient heating
- Because the insert uses outside air for combustion, this means it does not require cold air that comes through leaks or open windows or doors that are usually needed to combust an actual fire. As a result, this allows for your space to heat up faster while reducing the amount of heat that escapes.
Flexible and Saves Money
- Direct Vent gas fireplaces are powered by gas and therefore take little to no electricity to operate. This can reduce utility and heating bills over time. These types of inserts require a vent to the outside. However, you are not limited to only using a chimney space as they can also be vented horizontally through exterior walls.
Safety and Aesthetic
- Direct Vent Inserts have a high-temperature glass panel that separates the burning flame from inside your living space. Because this insert only requires air from the outside and pumps the air back out, it will not affect the indoor air quality of your space. The actual flame is considered brighter and more realistic than most types of inserts. This gives your fireplaces the desired flame effect you would have from a real fireplace, creating a cozier feel and beautiful ambiance
