Performance, Style And Lasting Reliability

Traditional and Contemporary Gas Fireplaces & Inserts In All Shapes And Sizes

The ease of using gas fireplaces and inserts plays no small role in the fact that nearly 70 percent of the hearth products used today use natural gas or propane as a fuel. Instead of chopping and stacking wood, painstakingly building fires and scooping up ash, homeowners are enjoying a warm, mood-enhancing fire at the press of a button. Convenience isn’t the only benefit you get though — these units can provide consistent, efficient and cleaner heat, and you can have far broader installation options, too.


Direct Vent Gas Fireplaces are the most popular hearth systems today. They are convenient, safe and feature sealed combustion systems that protect indoor air quality.

Venting includes a single direct vent with two chambers that work together to perform dual purposes. One chamber draws oxygen from the outside, while the other expells 100% of the fire’s gases and byproducts from inside your home.

Some direct vents are terminated horizontally through a wall, others are routed vertically through a top vent. This allows versatility with the placement of a fireplace in your home.

Direct Vent fireplaces, stoves and inserts vent to the outdoors. There are several routing options for venting, depending on the type of hearth product and the fuel it burns.

  • Direct Vent Gas Fireplaces – vent to the outdoors horizontally, directly through the wall or vertically through the roof.
  • Wood Fireplaces and Stoves – vent to the outdors vertically.
  • Pellet Stoves – most vent horizontally, directly through the wall.
  • Fireplace Inserts – most vent vertically, through the roof via a chimney.
  • Electric Fireplaces – no venting is required.

High Country Fireplaces primarily sells direct vent products; however, if you are interested in a vent free option, please call us at (704) 876-8765 or email

High Country Fireplaces is awesome. They installed multiple fireplaces of different kinds and sizes in my house. The equipment they installed is top quality and hasn’t given us any trouble. Their installation service was also timely and professional. I enjoyed using them so much I recommended them to a family member that built a house and they were extremely satisfied as well. Keep up the good work Eric and Greg.
