A fireplace can quickly turn a simple room into the heart of the family home.  Homeowners looking to add cozy ambience to their home can do so with the installation of a fireplace insert – which can fit any pre-existing fireplace.  Besides the aesthetic appeal, fireplace inserts can result in increased heat output, reduced pollutant output and increased heat efficiency.  With the introduction of the new Vermont Castings Victory direct vent insert, those who want an elegant, clean design and an efficient heating source can have the best of both worlds. 

“Our new Victory insert is intended for the discerning homeowner who wants style and function,” said Jess Baldwin, vice president of marketing, merchandising and product development for Vermont Castings, a leading full-line hearth supplier.  “With this new insert, homeowners can cut back on their heating bill with a fireplace that can both impress guests and serve as a family gathering spot. 

The Victory direct vent insert features a flush face design, which allows up-to-the-opening finishing.  Offering a robust burn with realistic movement and clean, sophisticated styling, this insert also boasts premium ClearView non-reflective ceramic glass and interior illumination – so the unit is always a centerpiece in the room. 

Total Signature Command System 

Among the unit’s features is the Total Signature Command System, which allows users to control all fireplace functions with the touch of a button.  Easily accessible from the front access panel of the fireplace, the Total Signature Command System offers:

  • On/off three-step variable flame height adjustment
  • Automatic uninterrupted battery back-up during power outages
  • Cold climate standing pilot option, or energy-efficient intermittent pilot for more moderate climates
  • Memory shut-off so favorite settings can easily be recalled
  • A/C accessory module, which provides users with added control features, including accent lighting with three levels of adjustment, a three-speed blower control and time delay and an on/off auxiliary control to manage extra accessories like ceiling fans and room accent lighting
  • Rear burner shut down feature, which provides the elegance of fire and flame with a lower heat output – making it possible to capture the ambiance of a fire without the heat

“Victory offers many features which allow Vermont Castings’ quality craftsmanship and innovative design to shine,” said Baldwin. 

The Victory direct vent insert features a clean, slim appearance, six trim options and two brick choices.  A contemporary stone/glass kit will also be available, for those desiring a sleek modern look. 

The Vermont Castings Victory direct vent insert is made in the U.S. and retails starting at $3,000, depending on customized options.  The fireplace is available at hearth dealers nationwide, which can be found through the dealer locator at www.vermontcastings.com/dealerfind.asp .  More information about the direct vent insert and other Vermont Castings products can be found at www.vermontcastings.com
