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
  • Choose fireplace, insert, cast iron stove, or heater
Tahoe Clean Face Direct Vent Luxury Fireplace

Tahoe Luxury models retain the same overall dimensions as Premium models but feature ceramic glass (for better heat transfer), a dimmer-controlled accent lamp inside the fireplace, automatic blower, and an intricately detailed 13-piece log set.

The larger Slope Glaze Excess Burner provides a fuller ember bed and generates more heat than a comparably sized Premium model.

Liner options for Luxury Models include: Banded Brick, Stacked Limestone, and Black Reflective.

Luxury models are offered in Millivolt, IP, and Multi-Function remote models.

    These direct-vent fireplaces draw in fresh outside air to support combustion and exhaust combustion by-products to the outdoors.  The 5 x 8 vent-within-a-vent isolates the incoming fresh air from the exhaust, yet still requires just a single hole through the wall or roof.
