Direct Vent Inserts--The Best of Both Worlds!


Getting the most from an existing fireplace is the top priority for a lot of people. With the increasing costs of fuel, using an energy-efficient alternative is an exciting option. However, even though efficiency may be the top priority, most individuals don’t want to have to sacrifice luxury at the cost of proficiency. Direct vent inserts offer the best of both worlds. These fireplace inserts present the unique opportunity for effective heating while playing on the preexisting attraction of a custom fireplace setting. With the options available from The Fire House, you’ll wonder why you didn’t change over your heating unit sooner.

The Benefits
Ignited by a switch or remote, a direct vent insert offers the warmth and ambience of a traditional fireplace without the smoke and soot. Designed to be more efficient, direct vent inserts offer a variety of other advantages as well.

  1. Convenience
    Utilizing the fireplace you already have and not taking up valuable space, a direct vent insert can be installed into any wood burning fireplace.
  2. Efficiency
    These inserts are designed with a closed system, which draws air from the outside for combustion and expels gases outside. As such, no warm air is redirected outside of the home, and no soiled air is directed into the home. Many of our inserts boast 80% efficiency ratings!
  3. Safety
    Adding another level of safety, these inserts remedy the problem of exhaust by redirecting all used, soiled air outside of the home. This element means that no gases or fumes will end up back in your home.
