What is a Direct Vent?

A direct vent is great for those who want a fireplace, but the home cannot accommodate one. Here are a few things to consider about the direct vent that can help guide you in deciding if it is the right thing for your home.

Direct Vents Are Safe

The best thing about a direct vent is that it is safe. It will provide heat that is both clean and warm, but it also isn't dangerous and too hot that you have to clear everything away from it. It helps you to save space in your home because you can organize the furniture as you please without having to worry about a fire hazard.

Easy to Install

Not only is the direct vent easy to install, but it also can be made to look like a fireplace or a molding in your home. They aren't expensive and can be found in kits online or in many hardware and home stores. This allows you to have the look and feel of a fireplace if you are going for that, but not have to worry about all of the hazards that come with it and the home demolition that would need to occur in many instances. You also do not have to worry about the mess of lighting and cleaning up after the fire.
