A Direct-Vent system uses two vent pipes. One draws air in from outdoors to support combustion. The other exhausts the by-products of combustion to the outside. The two vent pipes may be concentric (exhaust pipe within a larger diameter intake pipe) or co-linear (separate pipes of about the same size).
Combustion takes place inside a sealed chamber – with a glass front in the case of a fireplace. Room air circulates around the combustion chamber, often assisted by a blower, to heat the room.
A DV system is often installed along an outside wall to simplify the vent run, but can also be installed elsewhere in the home and vented through the roof.
- Good efficiency – 60 to 80%
- Good heat output with thermal transfer through the glass and air circulation
- Separates room air from the combustion air
- May be used as the primary heat source
- Can operate with a remote or thermostat
- Most systems can provide live-saving heat during a winter power outage
Portrait-Style Direct-Vent Fireplaces
With its clean vertical lines the Forest Hills Portrait-Style Fireplace adds a striking design element to your home décor.
All Portrait-Style fireplaces come with an accent lighting system.
Forest Hills Traditional (DVTL27)
For a more conventional fireplace, choose the traditional model with its realistic hand-painted log set and ceiling-mounted accent lighting. Add the Rustic Banded Brick or Old World Stone liner – or the Black Porcelain liner which reflects the flame to create even greater visual interest. The available andirons help convey an old-world look.
All Forest Hills fireplaces include a multifunction thermostat remote control that can vary the flame height of the main burner. The remote lets you vary the accent lighting system or the optional blower, and even operate an unrelated appliance – such as a lamp or holiday decorations plugged into the outlet beneath the fireplace.
The clean-face design allows tile or stonework to the edge of the window frame.

About The Manufacturer:
Empire was the first to market vent-free heaters equipped with an Oxygen Depletion Sensor (now standard on all vent-free products in the U.S.). In the 1980s, Empire became the first to market a gas-fired heater that achieves 80-percent efficiency, and in 2006, Empire marketed the first vented gas fireplace to achieve 90-percent efficiency. From early floor furnaces (a forerunner to central heating systems) to console heaters to wall furnaces, to gas fireplaces and log sets, to the super-efficient Mantis fireplace system, Empire has adapted to market requirements.
