Direct Vent Wood Stoves
Direct vent stoves are the most popular type of stove today. A direct vented stove uses a sealed combustion system and a co-axial vent pipe, that is a four inch pipe inside a larger 7" pipe. No air from inside the house is used for combustion. The by-products of combustion leave the appliance on the smaller inside pipe and air for combustion is brought into the unit via the larger pipe. Direct vent appliances can be horizontally vented through a sidewall in your home or vertically through the ceiling and roof. This versatility and flexibility with installations have made direct vented appliances very popular. The realistic looking flames and glowing embers of a gas fire are extremely impressive.
Properly installed and set-up, a direct vent stove should not need much maintenance. We have many customers however, that annually have our service technicians inspect the appliance, clean the inside of the glass and generally check out the system to insure everything is operating correctly.
