I am thinking of changing my high efficency furnace from non-direct to direct vent. What are the pros and cons to a direct vent system?

Thanks for your reply and information. Our house has a non-direct vent now and my husband wants to change it to direct vent mainly to increase the efficiency. I wanted too make sure there wasn't any drawbacks before he did this. It's a gas furnace and we live in Illinois so efficiency is important! But,is it worth doing this project? It currently vents from our basement which will soon be finished and the room closed off. Also, do you know where I can get good info on how to do this? Thanks!

I currently have a high-efficiency furnace that can be used in either application. Either a non-direct vent or direct vent. It currently is a non-direct, and I was going to change it to a direct vent by running a 3" PVC about 20'. I was wondering beforehand the pros and cons? Thanks.
