Belle of the Ball: Vent-Free Linear Fireplaces

Posted Monday, September 24th, 2018


At Cressy Door and Fireplace, we have searched far and wide to find the most innovative products for our Northwest Customers. Recently we added a line of gorgeous vent-free linear fireplaces by Empire, White Mountain Hearth. Empire was the first to market a vent-free fireplace and has been in business since the early 1900’s.

What’s a vent-free fireplace? So glad you asked. It’s an all-in-one complete fireplace. It includes the metal firebox, a gas burner, and log set. What’s so exciting about them? There is no ducting or venting required. Not only that, they are stunningly beautiful and amazingingly efficient.

More about Vent-Free Fireplaces

A Vent-Free system uses room air for combustion and delivers 99.9% of the available heat energy directly to the room. Vent-Free systems have an unmatched safety record, thanks in part to their clean-burning technology and their Oxygen Depletion Sensor, which instantly shuts of the valve if oxygen in the room drops to and unsafe level. Because no venting is required, Vent-Free systems offer more installation options.

Vent-Free Advantages

  • Unmatched efficiency – 99.9%
  • Offers the most installation versatility
  • Usually less expensive to buy and to install
  • Can operate with a remote or thermostat
  • Most systems can provide live-saving heat during a winter power outage
