Hi everyone,

I have been trying to do some research on wood burning zero clearance fire places. The wood burning models don't seem to be that common and I'm really not finding a whole lot of information to demystify this!

We do not have gas service and would rather not have a propane FP. We like wood burning the best. I was reading some information on a manufacturers catalog and I got the impression that wood burning models cannot direct vent? Is this true or did I interpret the info incorrectly? I don't see the point in getting ZC if I have to chimney to the roof. Any help would be much appreciated!

We had this in mind for a finished basement in a "bi-level" style home if that helps.

Thanks.

Dear Suz,
Similar situation. I purchased a wood burning, fully enclosed, heater with a fan from Great Northern. ( on the net). One can not direct vent for obvious reasons. However, I ran my vent through the side of the house and up past the roof with good results. This unit costs 550.00 with shipping and will heat 2000 sq.ft. It used one good sized log in 11 hours and has a thermostat air feed. Kept my basement toasty all winter.
