Venting & Chimney
The majority of gas venting systems are called “Direct-Vent.”This means that the termination or exhaust can terminate vertically or horizontally. There are several ways to accomplish this. In the case of fireplaces and stoves we often specify a concentric pipe that incorporates an inner liner for exhaust and an air space between the inner and outer liner that brings combustion air to the stove or fireplace. In the case of inserts or stoves in existing chimneys, we can use co-linear vent system that incorporate 2 smaller flexible liners and a termination that separates the intake and exhaust. Either way, we can help you establish a proper venting system for the appliance of your choice. The beauty of “Direct-Vent”technology is that there is no longer any interior “room” air being drawn-into the fireplace. This eliminates many draft issues and enhances efficiency.
