The Ventis (VBA1570) Traditional Style Faceplate for the HE325 Wood Fireplace to draw air from outside the home rather than from the room where the stove is installed. This feature is beneficial for several reasons.
First, it is particularly useful for mobile home dwellers as it ensures the fireplace has a dedicated air supply from outside the mobile home. This helps maintain the overall air quality within the mobile home by preventing the fireplace from drawing air from within the living space.
Additionally, homeowners experiencing negative air pressure problems inside their homes can benefit from this feature. Negative air pressure occurs when there is a higher pressure outside the home than inside. In such cases, the traditional operation of a fireplace can worsen the negative pressure by drawing air from inside the home, leading to potential issues like backdrafting or reduced indoor air quality. By using a kit that allows for outside air supply, the fireplace can draw air from a controlled source, mitigating negative air pressure problems.
