    By Robert from Scranton, PA on May 22, 2013
    I am using this vent kit to vent my Empire Natural Gas Fireplace directly out the back horizontally to an exterior wall.The kit is too short as I need to vent about 24 inches to reach the vinyl extension on the exterior of the house. Do you have extensions or longer pieces that I should use or do I add to the vent length by purchasing venting pipe from my plumbing/heating supply house. Is 24 inches permitted horizontally? Also when I tried a dry fit the 4 inch vent seems very loose in the housing on the fireplace. Is there a gasket that could fix that?
    By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on May 22, 2013

    While it depends on the exact model, almost all Empire direct vent units permit up to a 24 inch maximum vent run when venting the unit totally horizontal. However I will need your model number to verify it.

    This particular vent kit can be extended if necessary, with sealant and clamps needed at the overlap. Unfortunately, we do not offer extensions, but this aluminum tubing can usually be found at HVAC supply stores.

    The inner and outer vent tubes may indeed be slightly loose. The gasket included with some units or the high temperature sealant that is recommended for others is designed to take care of that issue.

    We are venting through a brick wall, will we need some sort of additional piece to make the attachment to the brick? Or special fire stop material?
    By Tyler M. - Fireplace Specialist on February 14, 2012

    No, the wall thimble that is included with this vent kit is sufficient for passing through that brick wall. The thimble serves as a wall firestop that houses the pipe as it goes to the outside. This kit is suitable for use for walls up to 13 3/4 inches thick.

    Can this horizontal vent kit be used for Liquid Propane (LP) stoves?
    By Will M. on March 15, 2016

    You will need to defer to the product literature for your gas hearth system to determine if this will be acceptable. This venting kit is not universal and is only suitable for use with certain direct vent fireplaces offered by Empire.

    By Eric from NJ on May 6, 2013
    I see that this venting kit as well as the DVVK4RP can be used with the Tahoe 36" Deluxe fireplace. Is there a difference between these exhaust kits? The DVVK4RP says that it "ensures consistent ventilation without the effect of exterior weather conditions." Does that mean that the DVVK4RE could let in rain?
    By Tyler M. - NFI Certified Specialist on May 7, 2013

    The comment about weather conditions refer more to the proper ventilation and operation of the fireplace, as opposed to allowing rain into the house. Both vent kits are suitable for use, with the main difference being the DVVK4RP vent kit consists of DuraVent DirectVent Pro venting components, and this DVVK4RE kit contains simple galvanized metal tubes and a small round cap. The function is the same, but the DVVKRP kit consists of higher-quality venting materials, hence the price difference.
