Zero Clearance/Renovations

Are you renovating or building a new home? Zero clearance fireplaces are designed to be installed in new construction projects or when renovating your home. Valor offers superior performance fireplaces which can be installed just about anywhere, which in turn, increases the value of your home. Most zero clearance appliances require direct vent installations.

Our radiant gas fireplaces allow you to take advantage of zone heating by providing heat where you spend most of your time - a great alternative to central heating.

Outdoor Fireplaces

Valor's radiant heat advantage has made its way outdoors. You can now convert a zero-clearance Valor gas fireplace to a beautiful outdoor unit with our new Outdoor Conversion kit and take advantage of Valor’s radiant heat outdoors.

Open fronted fireplaces simply cannot match the radiant performance of a well engineered direct vent fireplace with a glass window. Excess air through an open-fronted unit "washes out" heating performance, causing radiant output to plunge. Using a Valor Radiant fireplace outdoors provides the kind of heat you and your family need to take away the chill and provide glowing warmth.
