However, if your top priority for a new gas fireplace appliance is high heat input, All American Chimney Service recommends updating your existing fireplace with a Valor direct vent gas fireplace insert. They are also known as the “smart fireplace”. A direct vent gas fireplace insert is a sealed system, which means the indoor air quality of your home is protected, as the byproducts of the combustion never enter your home. You will also save a bit of money on your utility bills, thanks to the engineered flue system that pulls air for combustion from outside. If you need to heat a large space, we also have inserts that can heat an area up to 2,000 square feet. No matter what your interior design tastes is, we know we have the right style for you at theValor Design Center.
