Benefits of Vented Gas Logs

With so many different types and styles of gas fireplaces and gas logs, it can be difficult to decide which is best for you. Vented gas logs offer several benefits for Midlands homeowners.

  • Good flame imitation: The yellow flame produced by vented gas logs looks like the flames from a wood-burning fire. Homeowners who like traditional fires but don’t want the mess can enjoy vented gas logs.
  • Energy-efficient: Vented gas logs let you control the temperature and use less energy. They also produce fewer emissions than traditional logs.
  • Safety: While burning fuel means vented gas logs are dangerous, they are safer than wood logs. There is less smoke and fewer sparks with gas logs.
  • Ease-of-use: Vented gas logs are easy to use. You turn them on with a switch. They’re much more straightforward than traditional fires, which need kindling to start!

To determine if vented gas logs are the right choice for your Columbia home and family, schedule an appointment with Meetze Plumbing by calling us at (803) 732-3747 or contacting us online.

Vented gas logs look like wood logs. They need to be burned in a wood-burning fireplace with the flue open. Ventless gas logs do not smoke and burn cleanly. There are also similarities between vented and ventless gas logs, including low fire risk.

It depends on how often you use your logs. Well-maintained vented gas logs can last up to 10 years. Logs used heavily or not maintained may need to be replaced after five years.

The short answer is no. Because they produce carbon monoxide, vented gas logs must be used in a traditional, wood-burning fireplace with a damper and flue. You cannot use vented gas logs if you have a ventless fireplace.
