Loft Direct-Vent Insters

Awaken your inner artist with a Loft Series Contemporary Direct-Vent Insert – in small (20,000 Btu) or medium (27,000 Btu).  Choose Millivolt ignition or Intermittent Pilot.  The black porcelain lining inside the Loft insert reflects the mesmerizing flame from the contemporary linear burner to create depth and visual interest from any angle.

A Direct-Vent Fireplace Insert turns your existing wood-burning fireplace into an efficient gasfired heat source. A wood-burning fireplace sends more than half of its heat up the flue, creating negative pressure in your home, which draws in outside air through gaps in doors and windows that actually makes your home colder. A wood-fire can also create ash and fumes that dirty your home and aggravate your allergies. 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. Unlike a central furnace, which wastes 20 to 30 percent of the heat energy through ductwork losses and sends much of the remaining heat to unoccupied rooms, zone heating creates and transmits the heat directly into the room. This lets you turn down your whole-house thermostat and use your fireplace insert to efficiently warm the room you use most. Our Direct-Vent insert uses readily available 3-inch flexible co-linear vent pipes. One draws air from outside your home, and the other sends flue products directly outdoors. The flexible metal venting allows the insert to install easily in a site-built or manufactured fireplace. Fireplace barrier screens, required for all direct-vent systems, protect you and your family from inadvertently touching the hot glass.
