VENTED vs. VENT-FREE SYSTEMS
Vented gas logs refer to those built in new or existing fireplaces, giving the system a traditional look and feature tall, realistic, dancing flame patterns. The flames wrap around the gas logs which produces carbon monoxide, just like burning real wood, so they must be burned with the damper open. Because of this, a portion of the heat generated is exhausted out of the chimney, however, what you lose in heat you gain in beauty and realism. Vented logs can be positioned anyway you like for a custom look and can burn for hours with little supervision.
Vent-free gas logs, also known as ventless gas logs, are of a more modern design and can be placed nearly anywhere. They offer an easy and adaptable setup and output more heat than vented systems. Ventless gas systems are primarily a heating appliance – the heat circulates the room instead of going up a chimney, creating a highly efficient heat source, and they emit less gas and pollution than vented systems.
