ENERVEX MECHANICAL VENTING
The perfect fire features a flame that’s just the right size. Not too high. Not too low. But to achieve the perfect fire, you need the perfect draft. That’s why Isokern and Enervex, two leaders in the fireplace and venting industries, have teamed up to ensure proper chimney draft for air tight environments.
Fireplaces can be vented by gravity or by mechanical means. Gravity venting uses the difference in gravity of cold vs. warm air to create draft for fireplaces. Whereas mechanical venting uses a fan to create proper draft.
Utilizing an ENERVEX mechanical venting system is an economical and environmentally
friendly solution that quietly maintains perfect draft for fireplaces. Each mechanical venting system will recommend ECO-STEEL or ECO-STEEL+ insulated chimney to provide the quiet comfort, so you’ll never even notice it’s there.
Also available by ENERVEX is the Multi-story Fireplace Exhaust System (MFES). With this innovative technology, a single exhaust system can vent multiple gas-fired fireplaces in a single chimney. The fireplaces are monitored through an integrated electronic system allowing each unit to operate individually.
ENERVEX’s systems qualify for LEED points under the Energy & Atmosphere, Materials & Resources, Indoor Environmental Quality and Innovation & Design Process sections.
