How Can I Tell What Kind Of fireplace I Have?
It is important to note that gas logs, are not safe to install in gas fireplaces. Gas logs are made to be installed in wood burning fireplaces as a way of converting them to gas. Installing a gas log in a gas fireplace that was not designed for the purpose can cause major problems and can be hazardous to your health. Your Express Pros gas log technician can inspect your fireplace to see if it is a suitable candidate for a gas log fireplace. If you have a wood burning fireplace, then you can probably install gas logs in it. Always check with a licensed professional first.
Vented Gas Logs
If you are lucky enough to live in a home with an existing wood burning fireplace you can install a vented gas log fireplace. It is vitally important to remember to have the damper open when you burn vented gas logs as they do not burn the gas cleanly, in fact, they create exhaust that is quite similar to burning a real wood fire.
Pros Of Vented Gas Logs:
● Very realistic flame pattern
● Taller flames than ventless logs
● Do not require a CO2 detector
● Most of the smell dissipates up your chimney
Cons Of Vented Gas Logs:
Less heat output than ventless logs
Uses slightly more gas than ventless logs
Ventless Gas Logs
Ventless gas logs can be installed in any fireplace that is fully capable of burning wood and are burned with the damper closed. The specially designed burners burn the gas cleanly and produce almost no exhaust.Furthermore, 99.9% of the heat produced by the gas logs goes into your room, so they produce way more heat than vented logs.
Pros Of Ventless Gas Logs
● Superior heat output than vented gas logs
● Less pollution
● Less gas consumption
Cons Of Ventless Gas Logs
● Creates excess moisture that could result in mold or mildew
● Can deplete the oxygen in your home
● Ventless logs produce a kerosene type odor
● Unrealistic flame pattern
Installation of either of the above systems must be performed by an Express Pros technician who understands the correct way to test your gas pressure and make sure that the installation meets your building codes.
