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

Portrait-Style Direct-Vent Fireplaces

With its clean vertical lines the Forest Hills Portrait-Style Fireplace adds a striking design element to your home décor.

Available in Contemporary and Traditional models, these unique fireplaces offer several designer options to let you create your perfect fireplace.

All Portrait-Style fireplaces come with an accent lighting system.

Forest Hills Traditional (DVTL27)

For a more conventional fireplace, choose the traditional model with its realistic hand-painted log set and ceiling-mounted accent lighting.  Add the Rustic Banded Brick or Old World Stone liner – or the Black Porcelain liner which reflects the flame to create even greater visual interest. The available andirons help convey an old-world look.

All Forest Hills fireplaces include a multifunction thermostat remote control that can vary the flame height of the main burner. The remote lets you vary the accent lighting system or the optional blower, and even operate an unrelated appliance – such as a lamp or holiday decorations plugged into the outlet beneath the fireplace.

The clean-face design allows tile or stonework to the edge of the window frame.

        • 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.
