20 years of passion, innovation and kiwi ingenuity have gone into the making of Escea’s debut range of wood fireplaces – featuring the Direct Vent Technology that lead to the success of their gas fireplace range and applying it to an industry as old as time itself.

Unlike most wood fires, Escea’s full range of wood fireplaces are Direct Vented, giving you a fireplace that heats the home more efficiently, eliminates cold draughts and the need for external venting, necessary for modern homes.

But what is Direct Vent Technology, how does it function in Escea’s Wood Fireplaces and why is it so much better for you and your home?

We can show you better than we can tell you.

Escea’s Direct Vent Technology draws air from outside the home to fuel the fire. This air then travels down the outer layer of the flue and into the fireplace.

As the outside air travels down the flue, it is pre-heated by the exhaust air exiting the inner layer of the flue.

This air is used to help the fireplace burn, while keeping the firebox sealed to the room. The exhaust air then travels up the inner layer of the flue and exits back outside.

Other wood fireplaces use air from the room which creates cold draughts and often requires additional venting. With Escea Direct Vent Technology, no room air is used to fuel the fire which eliminates cold draughts, the need for external vents and will ultimately heat your home more efficiently.

To heat the room, air from inside the home is drawn into the bottom of the fire, heated, then pushed back into the room using our intelligent heat-activated Smart Fan. So, only exhaust air leaves the room, ensuring only warm air circulates in your home.

All Escea indoor wood fireplaces use Direct Vent Technology – for warmth that’s better for you, and your home.
