Outstanding Design and Easy Installation are Features of Merit™ Louverless Direct-Vent Contemporary Fireplace

ORANGE, Calif. (January 29, 2009) – Homeowners seeking a stylish departure from the traditional fireplace-and-log set can now turn to a sleek, modern alternative. Lennox Hearth Products' (LHP) Merit™ Louverless Direct-Vent Contemporary Design (MLDVTCD) 35-inch gas fireplace combines clean, contemporary lines with a classical simplicity that's timeless in its appeal.

With entrancing fire and eye-catching reflective porcelain interior panels, the MLDVTCD fireplace also offers a variety of stunning exterior and interior options that make it a winning product.

Mix-and-match interior offerings include:

  • Crushed glass in three colors: diamond white, obsidian black, and deep sea blue
  • Tumbled river stone, featuring multi-colored rocks in rich Southwestern hues
  • White beach sand, accenting the flame with a softened, luminescent look
  • Optional black ceramic interior panels with a vertically detailed pattern reminiscent of a meticulously groomed Japanese Zen garden.
  • Exterior trim options include a façade and frame that focus the attention directly on the fire and create a wide-screen appearance. Available in a choice of painted and plated finishes, they attach easily to the fireplace for a dramatic look and easy, effective mid-wall installation.

    THE MLDVTCD fireplace is not just beautiful to look at, it is also energy efficient. This unit is heater-rated and available with an optional blower for added effectiveness. Standard high-low flame controls and an optional pilot-less ignition with battery back-up provide energy savings and allow the fireplace to be used in the event of a power outage. Perfectly sized for use in any room in the house, the MLDVTCD is included in Lennox Hearth Products'"Burn Smart" program, a menu of efficient, clean-burning fireplaces that conform to third party standards.

    The striking looks and energy efficiency of the MLDVTCD direct-vent fireplace are exactly what builders and consumers have come to expect from Lennox, America's best-known fireplace brand.
