Direct Vent Gas Fireplaces

Direct Vent Gas Fireplaces burn natural gas to create heat and flames. They are versatile and easy to install. Enjoy a Direct Vent Gas Fireplace in the living room, bedroom, the basement, kitchen, bathroom, den, and even the home office – wherever you want to enjoy the comfort and warmth of a fire. Direct Vent Gas Fireplaces average about five times more efficient than traditional fireplaces while maintaining air quality and evenly distributing heat throughout a space. Installation eliminates drafts because the unit is completely sealed and requires no chimney for venting, also ensuring that no gases are released into the home. Cooler air is drawn into the firebox from the outside, which then efficiently pushes the hot air inside the box out through the venting. Indoor air is pulled in and circulated around the outside of the box that is heated by the fire and moved into the room for cozy heat. One of the best parts about a Direct Vent Gas Fireplace is that they do not require electricity to operate. Instead batteries or a self-sufficient control can light the fireplace in the event of a power outage, ensuring light and warmth.

High Definition Series

The simple yet sophisticated design of the Napoleon High Definition Series Gas Fireplaces provide every comfort a homeowner needs to create a relaxing environment. Clean face frames maximize the viewing area so the realistic flames and log set are enjoyed to their fullest. The High Definition Series generates plenty of cozy heat and can be easily adjusted to increase comfort.
