Combustion Appliances

Direct Vent Equipment

NOTE: Direct vented models are equipped with a pipe to bring combustion air directly from outside to the combustion chamber and have a second sealed vent pipe to carry exhaust gases directly to the outside from the appliance.

Fireplaces/Stoves With Proper Ventilation

Unvented Combustion Appliances

Unvented combustion appliances include unvented fireplaces, also known as ventless or ductless fireplaces. These gas, propane, or ethanol-burning fireplaces have no vent so they draw combustion air from the room they are in and release toxic combustion byproducts and moisture vapor back into the space in which they are located. Their use is banned in many states and municipalities.
