B Vent Gas Fireplaces offer the look of real wood fireplaces without the hassle. Remote control options make the gas fireplace the top choice for comfort and convenience. Gas fireplaces can be integrated into almost anything, wall mounted, or built into a masonry surround.
At Arizona Fireplaces, we carry both Direct-Vent and B-Vent units. Depending on your budget as well as personal needs (i.e. size of living space and layout); you will need to choose accordingly. If you are unsure what type to select, feel free to give us a call. Our staff will be glad to assist you, so you don’t end up buying the wrong fireplace. Here are some things to know about the B Vent Gas Fireplaces.
- B-Vent units are smaller and cannot be installed horizontally; they contain one pipe and use the air from inside your home for combustion purposes.
- The downside of B-Vents is that drafting can occur from the flue, as it must be installed through the roof. However, you don’t need to worry about precise firewood placement as you would with a Direct-Vent fireplace. The latter will not combust properly unless the wood is positioned just right.
B-Vent gas fireplaces are a better solution than a traditional wood-burning stove, if heat efficiency is what you are after. The important thing to keep in mind is that while Direct-Vent units do reduce heat loss, this is not always a good thing for smaller homes. If you are unsure of what will work best, contact us before buying.
