A Direct-Vent system uses two vent pipes. One draws air in from outdoors to support combustion. The other exhausts the by-products of combustion to the outside. The two vent pipes may be concentric (exhaust pipe within a larger diameter intake pipe) or co-linear (separate pipes of about the same size).

Combustion takes place inside a sealed chamber – with a glass front in the case of a fireplace. Room air circulates around the combustion chamber, often assisted by a blower, to heat the room.

A DV system is often installed along an outside wall to simplify the vent run, but can also be installed elsewhere in the home and vented through the roof.


  • Good efficiency – 60 to 80%
  • Good heat output with thermal transfer through the glass and air circulation
  • Separates room air from the combustion air
  • May be used as the primary heat source
  • Can operate with a remote or thermostat
  • Most systems can provide live-saving heat during a winter power outage

Tahoe Direct-Vent Fireplaces

Tahoe Clean-Face Deluxe models feature our Contour tube-style burner, designed to complement the hand-painted ceramic fiber log set, and produce a natural dancing flame.

The Clean-Face Deluxe Fireplace comes with a discreet air distribution channel that eliminates the look of louvers, yet still allows you to operate the optional blower. It features a large tempered glass window that provides an unobstructed view to the log set. Choose an optional liner to customize your fireplace.

Tahoe Clean-Face Deluxe models require 17-3/4, and use 4 x 6-5/8 venting, making them ideal for applications where wall-cavity space is tight.

Designed for in-wall installation, your Tahoe Direct-Vent fireplace can be finished with tile or other non-combustible material, which conceals the outer edge of the fireplace to provide a true built-in appearance.

Tahoe Deluxe

Tahoe Deluxe models feature our Contour tube-style burner, designed to complement the hand-painted ceramic fiber log set, and produce a natural dancing flame.

The Deluxe Tahoe model has louvers and an available trim kit.  The large heat-resistant, tempered glass window provides an unobstructed view to the log set. Tahoe Deluxe offer several styles of liners – Aged Brick, Herringbone, Stacked Limestone, and Black Reflective.

Tahoe Deluxe models require just 16 inches of depth making them ideal for applications where wall-cavity space is tight.

Controls Description:

Millivolt: Millivolt models feature a standing pilot that you light at the beginning of each heating season using the pushbutton Piezo igniter. Millivolt systems require no electric or battery backup. The systems work with any of our optional remote control accessories – from simple wall switches to thermostats to hand-held programmable remotes. 

IP: Intermittent Pilot models eliminate the standing pilot for even greater energy savings. IP requires 120V AC to operate on a daily basis but can run on battery backup to provide heat during a power outage. IP technology works with any of our remotes.

    to provide warmth

    We are building our house so we have not had the opportunity to put our fire place in but we bought two from you before and they were beautiful and worked so well. When we get it in we try to remember to get back to you. we look forward to the arrival of the wood burning stove.

    • Researched and ordered my fireplace from US FIreplace Store. Pricing was a fair value however, the customer service was EXCELLENT! I had an issue with the direct vent venting. I called US Fireplace and the correct items were sent out the next day AND Janessa stayed on top of my return authorization and sent me the permissions and documents I needed to return the incorrect item and no cost to me, including return shipping. Overall, I am a very satisfied customer and my fireplace looks and operates flawlessly. I am glad that I selected US FIreplace to source my direct vent fireplace. Thank you for the great service.

    • I had placed an order, through Lowe's Home Improvement, for an Electric Firebox: Revillusion RBF42. Ordered 1st part of January. Was told I would have it in 3 weeks. When checking to see is it came in, was told it was delayed to 3/15. Was then told is was delayed until 4/25. Waited until 4/27 to check on it. Was then told it was now delayed until August. This firebox was going in a new Sun Room addition. I could not get my final inspection until the Firebox was installed. I went on line and googled for this same product. US Fireplace Store web site was given to me. This was on a Saturday. I call and reached a very nice man. Explain what I was look for. He checked and told me they had 30 of them in stock. I almost fell out of my chair. I clarified with him the product I was wanting. I ask how soon could I get it. He told me it would ship today. Again, was amazed. It arrived on the following Monday. What a pleasure and a relief working with US Fireplace Store and their employees. Exceed my expectations.

    • Great prices, quick delivery and fast hassle free services on the issue I encountered. I had purchased an electric fireplace unit that would not fit into the existing fireplace space. With one email I was able to get the wrong fireplace refunded and picked up at my home at no extra cost and the new one I purchased and delivered free of charge. Great company.
