A Direct-Vent Fireplace Insert turns your existing wood-burning fireplace into an efficient gas-fired 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.
For the Loft DV Insert, choose a matching contemporary surround in all black or in black and stainless steel. The bold stainless steel panels top and bottom accentuate the clean horizontal look of the Loft Insert.
Lighting and managing a wood fire takes time and work – and more than a little patience to get it right. Your Innsbrook or Loft fireplace insert lights at the flick of a switch to produce consistent, reliable heat, even when electric power fails. Add the convenience of an optional thermostat, wireless wall thermostat, remote control, or thermostat remote control, and enjoy all the comfort of a warm cozy fire without the mess and hassle.
