Vented or Vent-Free Gas Logs: What’s the Difference?
Choose from a variety of gas logs in Dallas TX for your vented or vent-free gas fireplace. Although both types of gas fireplaces and logs are cleaner and heat your home more efficiently than traditional fireplaces, there are a few differences to consider.
What are Vented Gas Logs?
Vented gas logs look like real wood logs. They use a sand and a metal pan (sometimes referred to as a sand pan burner set) to manufacture more natural-looking flames. Vented gas logs create black carbon deposits in the firebox and on the logs to further the appearance of a traditional wood-burning fire. A sand pan burner is usually installed in a pre-existing masonry fireplace, and your chimney’s damper must be open when it’s in use. Vented gas logs in Dallas TX include decorative Ramussen crafted ceramic logs in Prestige Oak, Real Fyre Charred Split or Split Rugged Oak or Real Fyre Burnt Heritage or Burnt Rustic Oak. All vented gas logs are available with propane or natural gas option.
What are Ventless Gas Logs?
These gas logs use modern burner technology and a high burner temperature to ensure carbon monoxide stays at a safe level. They don’t need a flue, chimney or vent, so they’re energy-efficient, sending all heat directly into your home. Ventless gas systems have oxygen depletion sensors to stop gas flow if the pilot flame goes out or oxygen is too low. Install a carbon monoxide detector in your home, even if you have a ventless gas fireplace, as carbon monoxide leaks in the home can be caused by gas appliances or other sources. Vent-free gas logs can be heated with propane or natural gas, and come in different sizes, usually from 16” to 30”. Ventless gas logs are available in highly textured charred stacks, with extra bark pieces, Foothill Oak, Golden Oak and other realistic designs.
