Introducing the Outdoor Fireplace Conversion Kit

Valor’s radiant heat advantage has made its way outdoors (click here to visit Valor’s outdoor fireplace site). Now you can convert a zero-clearance Valor gas fireplace to a beautiful outdoor unit with our new Outdoor Conversion kit (GV60CKO) and take advantage of Valor’s radiant heat outdoors.

Open fronted fireplaces simply cannot match the radiant performance of a well engineered direct vent fireplace with a glass window. Excess air through an open-fronted unit “washes out” heating performance, causing radiant output to plunge. Using a Valor Radiant fireplace outdoors provides the kind of heat you and your family need to take away the chill and provide glowing warmth.

Visit one of our two locations in Burnaby or Port Coquitlam today to get started with an amazing outdoor fireplace just in time for summer!
