If you are thinking about adding a radiant gas fireplace to your home, one of the things that you’re going to have to consider is what type of ventilation system you want. The following are some of the venting options available when adding a radiant gas fireplace to your home:
Direct vent – A venting appliance that draws in combustion air from the outside and then exhausts its products of combustion to the outdoors, thereby eliminating the need for a chimney. You will need a glass panel in the direct vent unit in order to keep the combustion system sealed from your home.
- Natural draft venting – A venting appliance that takes in air from within your home, and then the products of combustion outside your home.
- Vent-free appliance – This type of appliance will draw its air from inside your home, but is designed to burn efficiently in order to eliminate any need for ventilation.
These are the main venting options that you can choose from when adding a radiant gas fireplace to your home. For additional information or advice about gas fireplaces, be sure to contact us at Valor Radiant Gas Fireplaces today.
