Hearth & Home Technologies Inc., one of the world's largest fireplace makers, partnered with the American Lung Association(R) Health House(R) program to promote clean indoor air. As part of an exclusive agreement with the Health House program, the educational partnership will help raise awareness among builders and consumers about the air quality benefits of technologies like direct vent gas and electric fireplaces.

Americans spend approximately 90 percent of their time inside. New homes built with more airtight construction help conserve energy, but less fresh air entering the home can enable pollutant levels to increase. The result is that indoor air quality can be two- to five-times worse than outdoor air, according to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.

"Poor indoor air quality can be a serious risk in the home," said Robert Moffitt, communications director of the American Lung Association Health House program. "Since many Americans want to have a fireplace or gas stove in their homes, selecting the safest type is a key component to protecting their families' health.

"We're excited to partner with Hearth & Home Technologies to help educate the public about the dangers of unvented fireplaces and fulfill our mission of preventing lung disease and promoting lung health," Moffitt said.

According to Hearth & Home Technologies, direct vent gas models directly expel 100 percent of the fire's combustion exhaust, moisture and odors outside the home. Indoor air quality does not have a chance of being polluted because a sealed glass front keeps potentially hazardous by-products such as carbon monoxide, nitrous oxide and excess moisture from entering the home.
