After a long day at work, there’s something relaxing and cozy about settling down in front of a fire. However, if you have a wood burning fireplace, there’s work to be done before settling in. Even if you do have the wood properly stored and cured, you still have to lay the fire, light it, wait for it to get going, and then clean it up the next day. What’s a great alternative? Install a direct vent gas fireplace!
Advantages of a Direct Vent Gas Furnace
There are distinct advantages to installing a direct vent gas fireplace. With a direct vent fireplace, you don’t have to worry about venting your fireplace through a chimney system. Instead, there are two pipes running between your fireplace and an outside wall. While one pipe brings air in from the outside to aid in combustion, the other pipe directs the fumes from combustion out of the house.
This is a more efficient and safer method of venting your gas fireplace. Another advantage of using a gas fireplace is definitely convenience. There will be no need to ever chop wood, lay a fire, and clean out the ashes afterward. Instead, all you have to do is flip a switch to enjoy real flames warming your home while also helping you relax. All the cozy feel with none of the work!
No Available Space?
A direct vent gas fireplace is the way to go, no doubt! What if you don’t have room for a fireplace? There are options such as a gas burning freestanding appliance, but they do take up some floor space.
Another great option is a linear gas fireplace. If you haven’t heard of this breakthrough in fireplace design, then you’ll definitely want to consider them. They fit on your wall and doesn’t extend down to the floor. If you have wall space, you could have a linear fireplace in your home. It is also a direct vented system so efficiency is not a concern.
