Buying Direct Vent Gas Fireplaces

Direct vent gas fireplaces do have a good return for its cost. There is nothing that can replace the comfort and warmth you and your family will experience.

Who would not want a good comfy fireplace during winter? And when you are in the city, you will have that tiny dilemma where to find firewood when all the trees available for you are at the park. Maybe you might not enjoy such a wonderful time warming up in front of a fireplace. But just a few decades ago came the solution of such hurdle. Direct vent gas fireplaces came to existence. Unlike those old mortar and brick masonry fireplaces that we usually see at homes; these direct vent gas fireplaces sure is good when it comes with cost-effectiveness.

Well in fact this is not like any other normal looking fireplace. Aside from its advanced zero-clearance technology, direct vent gas fireplaces is manufactured from metal and well-fashioned to be constructed in a wooden frame- without any foundation at all. And not only that, the good news about this is that, this does not require a chimney- its good throwing off the idea of having an ugly opening on the roof. But that means, good bye to “Santa” fantasies for kids.

Direct vent gas fireplaces would probably be one of your best buys. With it being more affordable than masonry fireplaces, it is even more nature friendly. Traditional fireplaces- the one with chimneys- had already created a massive damage when pollution is the topic. Wood-smoke is surely hazardous not only to Mother Nature but also to our health.

Because these direct vent gas fireplaces are gas-fired, these would then mean that you would not be needing firewood anymore. And therefore produce absolutely no particulates. And that would probably lead you to a conclusion that this will produce no mess at all. And you are right about that!

Indeed this is a beauty and having this at home would surely be great. What’s good about these direct vent gas fireplaces is that with just its small size, you can heat up much more as any traditional fireplace can. Some direct vent gas fireplaces can produce heat that is almost 20,000 BTU every hour. That is definitely a large amount of heat. And because it works so well in heating up homes, it became a common complaint that it is uncontrollably warm. Therefore always ask for these BTU’s (wonder what it is? It’s British Thermal Units) when you get to purchase your very own direct vent gas fireplace.

When buying a direct vent gas fireplace, always make sure that you it is of good quality. Just take a look at your preferences. Do you want a nicer flame? Do you want artificial firewood that looks real? And aside from the look and package make sure that stores do hold a recognized lab-certification from a locally recognized organization such as American Gas Association (AGA)- just to make sure that products are compliant with some local codes of law.

And do make sure that you get to have a nice manual in case you have to install the fireplace by yourself. And wherever you plan to put the fireplace make sure that it is fit for that place- example, your bedroom, or your mobile home.

Prices do vary for these direct vent gas fireplaces- depending on style, frame, size, and finish. But it does have a good return for its cost. There is nothing that can replace the comfort and warmth you and your family will experience.
