Ok...let me know if I am way off base here, but I looked at a couple of direct vent systems-not the SWG power vent, but the vent where the fan is actually attached to the stove inside the house (keystoker and alaska). They looked great and the noise level really want's all that bad-or at least as bad as I expected.
However, would I be correct to assume that the SWG powervent would be quieter since it appears that the actual fan/motor is located on the outside section of the wall. Does anyone use the powerventer and could comment on the noise level. Also, is there any benefit to having the direct vent vs. a power vent? They both seem to provide the same function of not needing a chimney.
