Parts Listing - Oil Fired Warm Air Furnace
No Chimney? No Problem!
At Olsen, we recommend chimney venting for oil furnaces whenever possible. When it isn't a viable option, Olsen DirectVent is the economical, easy heating solution for new homes, or to switch off the high price of electric heat!
Q. What is the Olsen DirectVent Furnace?
A. The DirectVent Furnace is a top quality, high efficiency balanced flue furnace that releases combustion products to the outdoors through a vent on the side of the house, rather than a traditional chimney. Much like a dryer's venting system, this method utilizes the burner to efficiently force the combustion products from the heating equipment.
Q. What are the advantages of Direct Venting?
- Lower Installation Costs
The cost of installing Olsen DirectVent is typically less than a conventional chimney
- Reduced Heating Costs
DirectVent offers more control, usually resulting in higher combustion efficiency and fuel savings of up to 4%.
- Easier Maintenance
Modern Olsen DirectVent Furnaces are easier to inspect and subject to fewer service problems than traditional venting systems

Q. There isn't enough basement height to allow a 12" clearance to grade. What can I do?
