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 Clean-Face Multi-Sided (DVCP36PP/SP)

Both Peninsula and See-through models feature an attractive clean-face design that integrates the barrier screens into the fireplace – flush with the fireplace face – allowing you to install tile, brick, or other non-combustible materials right up to the fireplace opening.

Choose between the hand-painted Campfire Logs or Mixed Logs and Stones to customize your fireplace.

The optional decorative doors and fronts let you finish your new fireplace in the look that suits your décor.
