Every homeowner wants a quality fireplace in their home. But sometimes space constraints can eliminate fireplaces from the floor plan. In these situations, Heatilator has the answer the Aveo.

The Aveo features all the benefits of a direct vent gas fireplace, but in a petite size that will fit even the tightest of spaces. Its firebox measures only 11-1/2 in depth, framing to a foot! And it pumps out 18,000 BTUs per hour, providing the homeowner with comfortable heat output. Great for townhouses, condos and apartments, it also works well as a second or third fireplace in floor plans.

The Aveos compact design also eliminates the expense of a chase or dog house on the outside wall of the home, saving construction costs. It works well for zero lot line situations and remodeling jobs where space is an issue.

The Aveo is the perfect fireplace when space is at a premium, said Kathy Repp, Heatilator brand manager. Regardless of space constraints, the Aveo gives builders and remodelers the ability to profit from a fireplace while delighting their customers who may have assumed a fireplace was not an option for their home.

The Aveo features direct vent gas technology, maintaining indoor air quality by expelling 100 percent of the fireplaces combustion exhaust, moisture and odors outside the home. Its sealed combustion system keeps 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 Aveo is 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.
