Considering a vent-free fireplace in your home? Gorgeous, premium quality, and easy to install, these types of fireplaces offer a number of benefits that will add value and warmth to you and your home. Find our top reasons for going vent-free below!
Aside from never having to clean your chimney again, one of the best advantages of ventless fireplaces is that they're 99% efficient, compared with the 70-85% efficiency of vented models. Because they don't require a vent or flue, all of the heat your vent-free fireplace generates will stay inside, instead of escaping out a chimney or duct.
2) Ease of Installation
One of the major disadvantages of traditional fireplaces is the need to cut into your home's walls or roof to create a vent. Even with gas fireplaces, you are limited on where you can install depending on the gas line location. If you choose to go ventless, you'll save both time and money on installation. And, if you go for a gel alcohol fireplace, you can place it anywhere in your home!
3) No Wood Necessary
When you have a ventless fireplace, you'll never have to worry about keeping wood stacks in your home. Wood costs can add up, and the labor needed to collect the wood and keep it burning isn't always convenient. With a vent-free fireplace, there's no wood and no work - just warmth, whenever you need it.
4) No-Fuss Fire Starting
Another big benefit of vent-free fireplaces is their smooth ease of use. Because a ventless fireplace will either run on electricity or alcohol there's no need to crumple newspapers and kindling into a bundle first. All you need is a long-lighter to get it going immediately. There won't be any smoke or messy cleanup - just sit back and enjoy.
5) Warmth & Ambiance
If you're in a cold climate and a vented fireplace simply isn't an option, skip the generator and consider installing a vent-free fireplace. It will add instant ambiance to your home, and create that warm and welcoming atmosphere that only a fire can. Whether you're hosting a party or a small family gathering, or simply taking some time to reflect and meditate, there's nothing quite like sitting by a beautiful fireplace.
Everyone loves a warm fire on a cold night and what better way to enjoy the magical ambiance of a traditional fireplace without all the hassle and expense? Ventless fireplaces come in many different models to suit any home, giving homeowners significant energy savings, efficiency, and complete convenience.

Last week we invited the community of architects, designers, developers and contractors, to our showroom to enjoy a lunch and delicious Frosé. Our Design Director and CEO, Arthur Lasky, NCARB, gave an in-depth presentation on the innovative HearthCabinet® Ventless Fireplaces and how they can be used in almost any project, residential, commercial and hospitality, without the need for vents, flues, electricity or gas.
The discussion was focused on the common issues the industry faces when trying to specify a fireplace in projects in today’s difficult design and build environment.
Many trade professionals express concerns about installing a fireplace given huge construction costs, approvals, loss of square footage to bulky flues, safety and customization needs and aesthetic concerns
Lasky explained how HearthCabinet® Ventless Fireplaces require no exterior connections, reducing the cost of construction labor and how fast and safe the self-contained luxury system is to use. The entire installation takes only a few minutes. HearthCabinet® Ventless Fireplaces can be slid into an existing space or stand alone on a secured base. They can be installed on the first floor of a thirty story building without having to have a cluster of flies and pipes core through a building.
HearthCabinet's Ventless Fireplaces were created over a decade ago by a team of fireplace designers led by Lasky, a highly experienced architect and designer, and Michael Weinberger, an inventor and product liability attorney. They were seeking an innovative and beautiful fireplace solution for use in homes and buildings that could not accommodate the installation requirements of conventional burdensome wood or gas fireplaces. The result was a beautiful ventless fireplace with the brilliance of a real flame. Michael Weinberger was able to create a fuel source that would produce a full, vibrant flame through patented alcohol based Safety Gel Cartridges™ and a patented locked Safety Screen system.
Lasky and his team have continued to innovate over the past 10 years to create a full line of HearthCabinets® that are built one by one in the US to exacting standards and are customizable both inside and out. They are used in the best homes, apartment’s condos, restaurants and hospitality venues. The design community has come to expect great designs and great and personal custom service from the HearthCabinet® team. Since its start, HearthCabinet® Ventless Fireplaces has been recognized as the finest and safest luxury fireplace on the market.
Our HearthCabinet® Ventless Fireplaces have been specified for many projects in New York City. And as we all know, fireplaces add significant value to homes, hotels and commercial spaces as well as provide a welcoming and comforting presence that becomes the focal point of any room.
Our products make it possible to install a fireplace where you want it. Call us today and our design and customer service team will work with you to create and build your next dream fireplace.

At ICFF 2019 we had the pleasure of displaying Reflectel Mirror Televisions in our booth! This pairing was a match made in design heaven because so often a television is placed above the fireplace.
Coincidentally, our companies have a lot in common!
1. We are both made in New York!
Reflectel Mirror-TVs are designed and crafted in their Tribeca production facility and HearthCabinet® Ventless Fireplaces are made in Brooklyn and inspected and delivered from our offices in Chelsea. Reflectel Mirror-TVs and HearthCabinet® Ventless Fireplaces are made with the highest quality materials and inspected for perfection before installation.
2. Both of our products are completely customizable.
Frame, size and tint are completely customizable at Reflectel. The homeowner just provides the television, and Reflectel designs the custom frame and mirrored overlay,
“Unlike other companies, we combine the brightest, thinnest televisions on the market with the most transparent mirror, delivering uncompromising picture clarity,” said Elizabeth Goldfeder President of Reflectel Mirror-TVs.
HearthCabinet® Ventless Fireplaces can be customized by size, finish, decorative interior and sometimes shape. With our brands, you can get the product of your dreams!
3. We work with the most respected designers and architects, as well as discerning end-users.
Both our brands have the highest standards of customer service and value our relationships with our clients. Our high quality service has granted both of our companies continuous opportunities to work with the crème de la crème of designers and architects.
4. Each of our products can be installed virtually anywhere.
Because the television converts back into a mirror when turned off, Reflectel Mirror-TVs can enhance any room in a home, office or hotel. HearthCabinet® Ventless Fireplaces can be installed virtually anywhere because they require no exterior connections, no gas, no chimney, no electricity, just 4 screws to secure the base.
5. The design results are BEAUTIFUL.
Whether you’re watching the flame, the television or your own delightful reflection, our brands can give you the most luxurious living room experience imaginable.

Today we celebrate our great planet by spotlighting one of our favorite eco-friendly furniture brands, Eugene Stoltzfus. Architect, Eugene Stoltzfus, founded his architectural and furniture design company in 2006. Their team is dedicated to incorporating natural elements into their building projects and object design. Their cork seating and table pieces are framed with steel in a modern fashion and designed for indoor and outdoor use.
“The bark of the Quercus Suber has been used for thousands of years for use as stoppers for wine,” says Robert Northington, Director of Sales at Eugene Stoltzfus. “After the corks are removed the waste bark is ground up and compressed. This post production waste is what cork flooring, wallboard and our furniture is made from. Cork trees that are harvested will store more than 5 times the carbon than non-harvested cork trees do.”
Cork is a fabulous option for furniture because of its impermeability and elasticity. It’s a sustainable raw material with fatty cellular components that make it water resistant. If stained, you can simply and gently sand the blemish away.
Cork is mainly harvested from the cork oak forests of Southern Europe and North Africa, most specifically Portugal. Cork trees are harvested every 9 years and because cork comes from its outer bark, it can be removed without damaging or cutting down the tree.
To find out more about Eugene Stoltzfus’ cork furniture, click here or ask about them at your next showroom appointment at HeartCabinet®’s flagship location in Chelsea, Manhattan. We’ll also be incorporating some of their pieces in our ICFF booth May 19th-May 22nd at the Javits Convention Center. Stop by booth 321 to check it out.
This spring we’ve warmed things up by developing new designs with award-winning furniture company, Cliff Young Ltd. Our collaboration showcases two cutting-edge contemporary-classic installations: one that features mixed metal materials inspired by images of modern skyscrapers and the play of reflected light and the other influenced by contemporary floating cabinetry. We’ve created this furniture line to reflect timeless luxury and effortless elegance. The audience these pieces attracted at both the Architectural Digest Design Show and High Point Spring Market confirmed that this collaboration was a success.
"You have to see them embedded in the furniture to understand how they revolutionize the idea of what a fireplace can look and feel like. A beautiful self-contained fire with no smoke and no chimney either!" says Cliff Young's owner, Leslie Azzolina Zarra. "We think the collaboration is the perfect marriage of sophisticated simplicity with the warmth of home."
Cliff Young Ltd. was founded in 1968 by Leslie Azzolina Zarra’s father, Cliff Young, an Italian-American who went from passionate musician to charismatic furniture designer. To this day their business maintains strong family values and exercises meticulous attention to detail while creating new signature pieces and when reproducing their classic products.
We have been honored to develop this line of quality furniture with Cliff Young Ltd. and hope to create more pieces in the near future.
If you would like to order either of the custom pieces, please contact HearthCabinet® Ventless Fireplaces for info and pricing. Both can also be customized for size, color and detailing if you need to!

At this year’s Architectural Digest Design Show, Cocobolo Design featured one of our HearthCabinet® Luxury Ventless Fireplaces in their booth! Principal, Benjamin Wiener, designed an extraordinary triangular ceramic surround in a beautiful, vibrant blue. This structure complemented the other hand-crafted pieces displayed in the booth in both color and composition. All of the items shown at the Arch Digest Design Show were a part of Cocobolo’s Arbiter Collection which included wall decos, sculptures and unique versions of household elements like tables, lamps and stools.
Cocobolo has a team of talented artists and sculptors and does many collaborations in the interior design world. Their ability to match any project’s aesthetic is the reason why we love to work with them!

We featured Cocobolo’s work shown in our Arch Digest Design Show 2017 booth designed by Wesley Moon. This piece is now on display in our NYC showroom.

NEW Geometric Ventless Fireplaces by HearthCabinet® is recognized by the 2018 NYCxDESIGN Awards under the Architectural Products Category.
Breaking the longstanding tradition of box fireplaces, the new design works because there is no venting required. A traditional shape usually encourages air to move up a flue, but that’s no longer a restriction with custom ventless geometric options, including trapezoids, hexagons, triangles, parallelograms and more.
