For years, homeowners have often viewed fireplaces as a significant asset to the home for warmth, design, and ambiance. To obtain a fireplace, homeowners were previously forced to move or commit to costly renovations. However, modern advancements in gas appliances can now allow you to add a fireplace to your home at an affordable price. With a variety of different types available, flexible installation, and vastly improved energy efficiency, gas fireplaces are quickly becoming the hottest design feature of the modern home.
Direct-vented fireplaces are some of the safest and efficient systems for modern air tight homes and have the largest variety of design options for supplemental heating. Essentially, these systems move fumes and pollutants out of your house through a chimney or a vent leading to the exterior of your home. Furthermore, these systems are versatile in their venting, which can be installed through your roof or horizontally from the inside of your home to the exterior.
According to buildwithpropane.com, roughly “90% of gas fireplaces sold are directly-vent because of their efficiency, and versatility.” Additionally, gbenergy.com reported that on average “a direct-vent fireplace will be around 70%-85% energy efficient” and are the most popular fireplace choice among homeowners.

Furthermore, B-vents can often utilize either natural gas or liquid propane.
