The International Builders’ Show (IBS) is known for showcasing innovative technologies in a variety of different categories, and this year’s show, which took place January 2013, was no exception. One notable standout was Heat & Glo’s brand new, ultra-slim Revo fireplace series. Available in square, linear and vertical styles, this new line of modern fireplaces is said to include the thinnest AFUE-rated fireplaces ever made. For those of you who don’t already know, AFUE stands for annual fuel utilization efficiency, a thermal efficiency measure of combustion equipment such as furnaces, boilers, fireplaces, and water heaters.
This new series of slender fireplace models quickly fill their compact fireboxes to produce an impressive heat output into a living space—up to 24,000 BTUs—more quickly than other leading gas fireplaces on the market. The new Revo collection also uses direct vent technology to ensure 100% of exhaust gases are expelled outside of the home, and each fireplace features Heat & Glo’s patented, invisible razor burner.
Designed for ease of installation, the Revo fireplaces require no footprint or exterior chase. Once a hole is made in the wall and an SLP venting pipe is set, the lightweight units are hung on mounting brackets.
