What Is A Direct Vent Heater?

Stay Warm This Fall

As the warm, sunny days begin to disappear and the cool, crisp fall mornings arrive in their place, many families are turning up the heat and piling on the blankets. The experts at Tri Gas & Oil would like to offer an alternative source in hopes of helping our valued customers enjoy a cozy fall. A direct vent heating system is an excellent way to add another heating source to your home without having to turn up the heat. What is a direct vent heater, you ask? Great question. A direct vent heater is a heating system composed of a two-part system: air intake and an exhaust system. They use outside air pulled through vents into the home to heat the area and the exhaust fumes head out through the system exhaust piece. These compact heaters allow customers to heat their home in a safe, efficient manner that avoids expensive alternatives. Contact us today to learn more about what a direct vent heater is.


What Are the Benefits?

– These units are energy efficient because the warmth is produced by modulating valves and blowers that use only the exact amount of propane needed to produce the heat required for the space!
– Cold spots are reduced because a variable speed blower circulates warm air evenly through the room, creating a consistently comfortable environment for you and your family.
– Zero clearance is needed to place the unit from the air intake, which allows for flexible placement in the room (although units must be placed on exterior walls so it can be vented).
– And the units are dependable and are low maintenance – brilliant!
