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 combustion air
  • May be used as primary heat source
  • Can operate with a remote or thermostat
  • Most systems can provide life-saving heat during a winter power outage

    Tahoe Multi-Sided (DVP36SP)

    Heater Rated at 35,000 Btu input, the Tahoe Multi-Sided system draws in outdoor air to support combustion and sends its exhaust directly outdoors, and must be located in a position that allows venting through an exterior wall or through the roof. Tahoe Multi-Sided  fireplaces install using readily available 4 x 6 5/8 direct-vent pipe.

    Tahoe Multi-Sided systems include a built-in 24-inch Slope Glaze Vista Burner, large tempered-glass viewing windows, Banded Brick Liner, ceramic fiber floor liner, dimmer controlled lighting, and glowing embers. The 24-inch Rock Creek Log Set and barrier screens must be ordered to complete the fireplace. (Doors are not available for multi-sided fireplaces.)
