Another impressive feature of this kind of fireplace is some types of direct vent fireplaces can operate without the use of electricity. Even though electricity is needed to power the blower, the flame control and burner are run on a self-generating millitvolt system or can even use regular batteries.

How Does the Fireplace Work?

  1. Combustion air is taken from outside the building
  2. The cool air within the room gets pulled into the lower chamber. Then it circulates around the firebox and goes to the room as warm air through the fan. There is also heat coming from the central burner that goes into the room
  3. The terminal is mounted outside, connects to the fireplace indoors
  4. The venting exits from either the top or the rear of the fireplace

  6. Direct vent power venting can be installed to go around stairways, up, down and around most objects in any space
