Proper Ventilated Fireplaces = Ventilated Fireplace

Technical Description

Ventilated fireplaces typically burn natural gas or propane and use a vent to bring outside combustion air directly into the firebox. These fireplaces have tight-fitting glass doors across their face to prevent conditioned room air from being used as combustion air and then expelled through the flue. Consuming room air for combustion may deplete oxygen levels in the home and pull conditioned air out of the home. Exhaust gases are vented up a chimney or out a side wall. These closed-combustion systems are much less likely to experience spillage of combustion gases into the home. This improves both health and comfort while eliminating odors.

Ventilated fireplaces help ensure dangerous by-products from burning fossil fuel cannot back-draft into homes. What this means to you is your family can breathe better every day knowing your home is equipped to help manage a critical respiratory contaminant. Wouldn’t you agree protecting health is too important to ignore in new homes?
