Often, customers are unsure of what type of gas fireplace they have. So when you call in looking for a Gas Fireplace Repair Fort Worth, the customer service representative will ask you if your gas fireplace turns on with a switch, or a key. If your fireplace turns on with a key, it is a regular gas log fireplace. If it turns on with a switch on the wall, almost like a light switch, it is most likely a direct vent fireplace.
What is a direct vent fireplace?
Direct Vent fireplaces do not require a chimney. They can be vented directly through a roof, or a wall. This type of fireplace gets its combustion air from outside, while venting to the same outside atmosphere. This process does not take away from the warm house air, and does not compete with a home furnace for combustion air. People like direct vent fireplaces because they eliminate heat loss and draft that can be a concern with other types of fireplaces.
What does it look like?
Direct vent fireplaces can have a variety of looks. Some of them have traditional mantles surrounding them to mimic the look of a traditional fireplace. Others have a more modern look to them, such as a sleek minimal box within the wall. One of the best ways to tell if your fireplace is a direct vent fireplace (besides noting if it turns on with a switch on the wall) is to look and see if it is sealed behind glass. Most often, direct vent fireplaces are sealed behind glass.
Why is my direct vent fireplace sealed behind glass?
Your direct vent fireplace doesn’t use any air for combustion from within the home. It will still generate heat for you in the winter even if sealed behind glass. This makes it more efficient, easy to use, and allows for healthier indoor air than a traditional masonry wood-burning fireplace.
