What does direct vent mean?
By Customer Service on December 23, 2012
Answer:Direct vent refers to a fireplace that is completely sealed from room air by using a pane of tempered or ceramic glass over its opening. The unit can usually be vented either horizontally or vertically and uses a coaxial vent pipe. The small inner pipe vents exhaust gases to the outdoors, while the larger outer pipe draws in air for combustion. These units are valued for their efficiency and the fact that they do not affect indoor air quality.

I'd like to replace my current Empire gas wall heater with the FMI Cottage fireplace. It is a natural gas, 35000 BTU, direct vent with the vent in the rear. Would this work?
By Collin on March 13, 2013
Answer:The FMI Cottage fireplace could certainly be used in place of the your current wall heater. Direct venting through the outside wall is relatively simple in most circumstances. You'll need to check and make sure that your current heater is direct vented as well. Most older Empire heaters are natural vent types that vent vertically.

I am looking for a fireplace insert for a fireplace that is 36 inches wide in the front, 20 inches deep, 26 inches wide in the back, and 24 inches high. I would like to have a clear face (not louvered) direct vent insert. The fireplace sits 4 inches high over the floor (The height of the fireplace insert would still be 24 inches). I would like to fill the 36 inch wide space as much as possible. Trims that go outside of the 36 inches to frame the insert would be even better. Which fireplace insert would you recommend?

I'm looking for small built-in cabinet unit like GD19 Vittoria Direct Vent, do you have some that I can choose from? It will go in a 6'8" x 12' sun room/library with an existing built in bookshelf.
