A Vent-Free system uses room air for combustion and delivers 99.9% of the available heat energy directly to the room. Vent-Free systems have an unmatched safety record, thanks in part to their clean-burning technology and their Oxygen Depletion Sensor, which instantly shuts of the valve if oxygen in the room drops to an unsafe level. Because no venting is required, Vent-Free systems offer more installation options.

Vent-Free systems are limited to 40,000 Btu and must be operated as supplemental heating sources in conjunction with a central furnace that circulates air.


  • Unmatched efficiency – 99.9%
  • Offers the most installation versatility
  • Usually less expensive to buy and to install
  • Can operate with a remote or thermostat
  • Most systems can provide live-saving heat during a winter power outage

Vail Vent-Free Fireplaces

At 99.9 percent efficient, the Vent-Free Vail Fireplace delivers more heat for your energy dollars – 32,000 Btu for the Vail 32 and 36,000 Btu for the Vail 36.  Ceramic glazed pellets in the burner tumble and swirl the gas to produce a natural flickering flame.

The Vail 24 delivers the beauty of hand-painted ceramic fiber logs and natural flickering flames to dens, halls, and even bedrooms.

The Vail 26 Special Edition is the American-made fireplace system that ships complete in one package, and is also offered as a separate fireplace – perfect for built-in and custom mantel applications.

Vail 24 (VFP24FP)

The Vail 24 delivers the beauty of hand-painted ceramic fiber logs and natural flickering flames to dens, halls, and even bedrooms.

Vail 24 Fireplaces are rated at 20,000 Btu – enough heat to keep a family room cozy and warm. Special 10,000 Btu models are available in Millivolt and Intermittent Pilot for bedroom installations, where allowed by local codes.

The Vail 24 fireplace includes matte black louvers and frame.  Available accessories include louvers and metal frames (in hammered pewter), blowers, brick liners, remo­te controls, and Standard Cabinet and Corner Mantels (in cherry, dark oak, oak, unfinished hardwood, unfinished oak, and white).

          • 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.
