Exhaust safely

First, let's get an understanding of the Venting used for each type of fireplace. The word "Venting" refers to the means the fireplace uses to Vent its exhaust safely from the room. In the case of Vent Free, exhaust is Vented directly into the room. In a Vent Free system, the consumption of gas is limited to a maximum of 40,000 BTU per hour to help preVent the room from being "starved" of oxygen. 800-439-9960

Fresh air

In a Direct Vent system, a double Vent pipe is used (pipe within a pipe). The outer pipe draws fresh air from outside to feed the combustion process while the inner pipe Vents out the exhaust from the combustion.

Primary methods

A Fully Vented system, including a B-Vent system, uses either a masonry chimney or a B-Vent (double wall metallic pipe). Now that we touched on the three primary methods of Venting, we can take a closer look at the pros and cons of each.

Vent Free Systems by Vent Contractors in Chicora, PA

As mentioned, a Vent Free system Vents its exhaust directly into the room. In other words, it does not use a chimney at all. As you can imagine, this can cause a carbon monoxide concern as this system continuously uses oxygen from the room it's being used in. For this reason, Vent Free systems are equipped with an oxygen detection safety pilot which detects when the oxygen level falls below 18%. If this occurs, the gas will automatically be shut off. The pros for this type of fireplace? You can install them almost anywhere in your home. They are very efficient, meaning you get almost 100% of the heat benefit from the fuel you are burning (the heat is not escaping outdoors). The downsides of this type of burning system? You need to buy specific types of burners/log sets specially made for Vent Free systems. You cannot burn wood in them nor regular Vented log sets nor other specialty Vented products. If you have respiratory-related health conditions, you may want to think twice before installing this type of system.

Direct Vent Systems installed by Vent Contractors in Chicora, PA

A Direct Vent system pulls fresh air in and sends its exhaust out through a combined flu system. The flu pipe Vents either out of the top or out of the back of the fireplace, for versatility. The flu pipe generally exits through a side wall in your room. The positives for this type of fireplace? No chimney is required, so less expensive to install than a Fully Vented fireplace.

Vent Contractors in Chicora, PA offers Fully Vented Applications

A Fully Vented system is what most of us think of when we think of a traditional fireplace. Most of us think of a fireplace having a full chimney (like the kind Santa Claus comes down). Usually we think of a brick and mortar chimney, but a Fully Vented fireplace can also incorporate a B-Vent flu (a double wall metallic pipe that rises up from the fireplace and out through the roof). Air for combustion comes from the room.
