Most people would agree that the most emotional aspects of a fireplace are its flames and the glowing ambiance it creates. On display at the International Builders Show in Las Vegas this week are the newest additions to Heat & Glos 6000 Series the 6000CLX and 8000CLX, featuring the industrys most advanced technologies to produce realistic flames with opulent accent lighting.

For more than 20 years, the 6000 Series has been the most sought after fireplace on the market. Starting with its debut of direct vent gas technology in 1987, revolutionizing the hearth industry, Americas love affair with this series continues. Todays models have the same classic style that so many homeowners desire, upgraded to feature the best technology the 21st century has to offer. This continues with tradition, as the 6000 series holds more technology patents than all competitive models combined.

The 6000CLX is a 36-inch model and the 8000CLX is the same fireplace with a larger dimension of 42-inches. The flames are active and dance like a wood-burning fire, surrounded by glowing, realistic red and orange embers. The firebox features LED accent lighting, which adds interest to the realistic flames. The accent lighting can be turned on separately from the flames, creating an alluring fireplace even in the hottest months of the year when most homeowners fireplaces are resting. Therefore, these fireplaces can be illuminated and enjoyed year-round.

With heavy-gauge construction, the 6000CLX and 8000CLX has exceptional fit, feel and finish. The options for surrounds and mantels are many, specifically designed to fit these two models. Of all the gas fireplaces available to homeowners, the 6000 Series has the most dcor choices for fronts and finishes on the market today.

The 6000CLX and 8000CLX feature direct vent gas technology, maintaining indoor air quality by expelling 100 percent of the fireplaces combustion exhaust, moisture and odors outside the home. Their sealed combustion systems keep by-products, such as carbon monoxide, nitrogen dioxide and excess moisture, from entering the home. Direct vent gas technology also helps builders earn green building points. It is the preferred technology in every green building program, including the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) Green Home Building Standards, U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) LEED for Homes and ENERGY STARs Indoor Air Package. It is also an American Lung Association Midwest Health House program Clean Air Choice.

The 6000CLX and 8000CLX are on display at the International Builders Show in booth #C5643. For product images and additional information, visit www.fireplaces.com/profitsolutions.com, and click on Media Kits.
