As their name implies, vent-free gas logs don't require a fireplace chimney or other type of vent to eliminate combustion byproducts like soot or creosote from your home. These clean-burning gas logs simply don't produce enough to worry about! They give you all of the cozy ambiance of a wood firewithout all of the work and mess.
Advantages of Vent-Free Gas Logs
Even if you have a non-working fireplace or unusable chimney, you can still enjoy the look of a wood fire.
They're easy to install almost anywhere.
Nearly all of the heat produced actually stays inside your home instead of going up the chimney or out through a vent.
They produce enough of that heat to warm up a substantial portion of your home. All of our models will heat at least 1,200 square feet!
They use about half of the gas than vented logs since they burn more efficiently.
They're available in several different styles that look like real wood, including charred logs and split oak.
A remote control is included with some units and is available as an option for the others.
Disadvantages of Vent-Free Gas Logs
The flames aren't as realistic as those from vented gas logs. They tend to be shorter, with less realistic color and movement.
Since they cycle the air throughout the room, for safety purposes vent-free logs require the use of an oxygen depletion system and a carbon monoxide detector. Fortunately, each of our models includes a built-in oxygen depletion system.
Because of the suffocation risk,never leave them running unless someone is home and awake.
They should be used for a maximum of 6 hours per day.
