Gas fireplaces offer several venting configurations:

  • Direct Vent: This is the most popular in our area. It uses a concentric pipe that can be rear vented straight out the back of the unit, up off the top and out the wall or straight out the top of the roof.
  • Vent-Free: This uses no chimney and is 99.9% efficient. This is not code to install in most counties in our area.
