Many of our customers have placed televisions or bookcases in the space above a vent-free fireplace. Vent-free gas fireplaces are an excellent room heater and 99.9% efficient.

Direct-vent Gas Fireplaces

A direct-vent gas fireplace has a sealed combustion chamber that prevents any combustion gases from entering the room. Also, the combustion air is drawn from the outside. This allows a direct-vent fireplace to be installed in any room, including bedrooms and baths. In homes that are very tight or when occupants are sensitive to room venting (vent-free), a direct-vent fireplace is the way to go.

There are very little design limitations with a direct-vent gas fireplace. They can vent horizontally to an outside wall or vertically through the roof. Also the direct-vents available at Bart Fireside are designed with a convection heat exchanger that makes a typical 80% efficient direct-vent fireplace more cost effective to operate than a 99.9% efficient vent-free fireplace, because it is able to heat many rooms.
