Vented gas logs have a really realistic flame pattern, making them mimic a wood fire really well, plus the tall flames dance and curl around the logs just like burning wood! With vented gas logs the damper must be open, so most of the smell put off by the gas logs goes right up the chimney. Because of this and how our vented gas logs are made, you don’t need a CO2 detector.
We’ve talked about the benefits of vented gas logs, but what are they exactly? They aren’t the same thing as a gas fireplace and they have to be used in a wood burning fireplace. This is because just like a wood burning fireplace they put off carbon monoxide as they burn. Vented gas logs use gas as a fuel source rather than wood and many of the Hargrove vented gas logs we carry are designed with incredible detail so they’ll be beautiful and stay that way for a long time! All you have to do is get the fuel and you’ll have a clean fireplace. You can also invest in an ignition system to make lighting even easier!
One thing to keep in mind with vented gas logs is that the damper must be open, otherwise carbon monoxide escapes into your room. Traditionally vented gas logs lose a lot of heat and aren’t as efficient as wood burning fireplaces, but some of our vented gas logs are designed specifically to help offset that so while you won’t be getting the same level of heat output from your gas log fireplace, you’ll still get some benefit from it!
