Spark Modern Fires’ energy-efficient fireplaces eliminate the smoke, soot and ash released by most wood-burning fireplaces. While traditional fireplaces can create drafts, Spark’s direct-vent models draw in outside air, thus retaining 80 percent of their heat—far more efficient than most fireplaces. The fireplaces burn natural gas or propane and need neither chimney nor hearth, so they can provide efficient heat anywhere.
