    Can you tell me about BTU's in direct-vent fireplaces?
    1 Answer
    BTU is an acronym for "British thermal unit", and it is a measurement of heat produced by burning fuel. The general rule of thumb is 35 BTUs heats one square foot; therefore 35,000 BTUs = 1,000 square feet of heating area for a 100% efficient appliance. Because direct vent appliances vary in efficiency, the heat output will vary as well. For example, if you have a direct vent appliance with a BTU input rating of 28,000 and an efficiency of 78%, you will need to divide that input rating by .78 to determine the actual BTU output. The output for this appliance is then 21,840 BTUs in total, which then leaves us with the ability to heat approximately 620 square feet.

    How do I know which size insert I need?
    1 Answer
    You would measure the brick opening of the fireplace (Width, Height, and Depth of the opening).

    I currently have a brick fireplace with gas logs. I would like to convert it to an insert. Would direct vent require me to cut a hole in the brick chimney or is there a way to vent it out the top? What is used as a power supply for the blower. Would I need regular 120V run to the insert?
    1 Answer
    With direct vent inserts, the pipe will be colinear and will run up to the top of your chimney. You will indeed need 120V to power the blower.

    What are the propane usage rates for the most efficient fireplace inserts?
    1 Answer
    Of course, fuel costs will vary widely with usage habits but the usage costs of our propane inserts will average around $0.80 to operate per hour.
