If you are considering converting your wood burning fireplace into a new gas log system then your first decision to make is whether you want a vented or ventless gas logs.
Tired of going out for wood in the cold and then having to wait for the fire to get hot?
Converting to a Gas Log Fireplace is an easy upgrade that will save you the time and frustration that comes with traditional wood-burning fireplaces. If you are looking to have a gas log system installed then you must first decide whether you want vented or ventless gas logs.
Vented Gas Log Fireplace Sets
In order to use a vented gas log set in your home, you must have a fully functional fireplace with a working damper system. Vented gas log systems do not burn the fuel cleanly putting off an exhaust containing carbon monoxide which is why you must have a working vent system to direct the exhaust outside. Vented gas logs are recommended for people seeking a yellow flame color and realistic flame pattern. The biggest downside to vented gas logs is that, because of the vent, a good portion of your heat escapes your home.
Ventless Gas Fireplace Log System
Vent free, or ventless, gas log fireplaces are specially designed with burners able to burn off the fuel gas cleanly with little to no exhaust, thus requiring no vent. Ventless gas logs can be used in a traditional wood burning fireplace or in a vent free fireplace that was designed for ventless gas logs. The major downside to vent free gas log sets is that the flame they produce is very small in height and has more of a bluish color so it does not resemble a real wood fire. The great thing about the ventless gas log fireplaces is that your house will retain 99.9% of the heat produced making them more efficient than their vented counterparts.
