The Posi-Pressure System

One of the unique design features of Fireplace Xtrordinair’s Elite fireplaces is that you can use fresh air which is drawn from outside the home for both combustion and heat transfer through a unique concept called ‘Posi-Pressure’. Posi-Pressure technology draws outside air into the cavity around the fireplace, heats it, and circulates it throughout the home via a quiet, remote blower. The heated air naturally ‘seeks out’ and penetrates cold spaces, warming the entire home evenly while ‘sealing’ cracks, leaks and other drafty spots by preventing cold air infiltration.

Fresh outside air is drawn through a remote, quiet 388 cfm blower to pressurize the house, and provide outside air for combustion. A washableair filter keeps incoming air clean. The barometric damper prevents cold air transfer into the heat chamber when your fireplace is not inuse. Outside air is circulated around the entire firebox for maximum heat transfer before being directed through the decorative face outlets topressurize your home with fresh heated air.
