The tank can be very flexible as to location, but must be a minimum of 3ft from home openings (windows, doors, etc.) and must maintain at least 10ft from any form of mechanical exhausts, intakes, or heat pump systems. As well, the tank cannot be within 10ft of your fireplace’s direct vent terminal which both exhausts and takes fresh air in to the unit from outside.

What is the difference between a Direct Vent and a B-Vent option for gas fireplaces and stoves?

With a direct vent, the air required to burn the unit is pulled through a termination located outside the home and into a sealed firebox and sends flue gases back out of the home through the inside portion of the vent. B-vent takes air from within the home and gravity vents the flue product back up and out of the pipe to the outside. B-vent is only available on certain units and is only appropriate in certain settings, be sure to ask your fireplace professional which is right for your home.
