Empire | Innsbrook Medium Direct-Vent Clean Face Gas Fireplace Insert 43"


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 combustion air
  • May be used as primary heat source
  • Can operate with a remote or thermostat
  • Most systems can provide life-saving heat during a winter power outage

Traditional Direct-Vent Inserts

A Direct-Vent Fireplace Insert turns your existing wood-burning fireplace into an efficient gas-fired heat source.  Direct-Vent Fireplace Inserts are classified as zone heating appliances. Zone heating is inherently more efficient than your existing wood-burning fireplace or your central furnace.

Innsbrook Direct-Vent Inserts (DVC)

Empire Innsbrook Direct-Vent inserts feature optional liners and hand-painted ceramic fiber logs, nestled atop the variable flame height burner, to create an exceptionally attractive traditional fireplace. With inputs of 20,500 Btu, 26,000 Btu, and 28,500 Btu, the Direct-Vent insert’s unique Slope Glaze Burner produces natural flickering flames that dance and delight – warming your heart as it warms your soles.

    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.
