Lennox Hearth Products Introduces Merit™ Series B-Vent Gas Fireplace - Now Available

New fireplace offers stylish, clean-burning alternative to wood

ORANGE, Calif. (May 24, 2007) – Lennox Hearth Products (LHP) recently introduced its newest addition to the Merit™ Series line, the Merit B-vent gas fireplace (LMBV). The LMBV offers builders a cost-effective gas fireplace with the great look of a wood-burning unit.

Available in 36″ and 42″ sizes, the LMBV boasts an appealing fire presentation with no exposed louvers, resulting in the clean-face, open-front look that is currently a hot trend in the industry.

“A builder will often install a wood-burning firebox for cost efficiency and include gas logs within that box for convenience, or to meet environmental regulations,” states Scott Andrunas, director of marketing for Lennox Hearth Products. “The new LMBV gives builders the total package: an affordable way to provide the look of an open-front, wood-burning fireplace in a home with a better-looking and more realistic end result.”

The LMBV comes standard with a brick-patterned liner. Optional exterior accessories, such as bi-fold doors, twin-pane doors and fixed glass panels are also available to create a variety of stylish looks. In any configuration, the open-front design makes the LMBV a worthy alternative in areas were environmental regulations prohibit wood-burning fireplaces.

The LMBV gas fireplace is currently available for purchase. Images are embedded below. For higher resolution images, please contact Melissa Zoeller at 502.297.6625 or mzoeller@powercreative.com.
