Direct Vent and Unvented Gas Fireplaces
The two most common types of fireplaces are direct vent and ventless. Direct vent fireplaces pull air from outdoors and discharge gas directly out the wall. They do not require a chimney. The fire is behind glass, and it emits a high volume of heat which doesn't get lost up the chimney.
Ventless, also called vent-free, or unvented fireplaces, channel natural gas or propane into a gas device, while flames run through recesses in ceramic logs. These fireplaces do not vent, so they can be placed inside the wall. Ventless fireplaces burn and release air inside the room. The flames burn cleanly and do not produce carbon monoxide. Heat generated from ventless systems stays inside the house. For this reason, they are very energy efficient. However, some states ban their installation in smaller rooms because carbon dioxide can accumulate more quickly in a small area. Check your local laws before installing a ventless fireplace.
Gas Log Fireplaces: What You Need to Know
If you are adding a new gas log fireplace to your Provo home or upgrading your current fireplace with gas burning logs, it is important that you hire an expert. Most gas logs are not safe to install in gas fireplaces. They are made to be installed in a wood-burning fireplace as a way of converting them into gas. If you install a gas log in a fireplace that was not intended for that purpose, you could potentially start a fire or worse. Gas logs burn in a closed-in fireplace, and this can cause gases to enter the living space, resulting in safety and health concerns, especially if you have allergies, asthma, and other respiratory issues.

Determine What Type of Gas Logs You Need
Since gas fireplaces can be vented and ventless, each one needs its own type of gas logs to operate safely and properly. Before you decide what type of gas logs you will need, you have to know what your fuel source is. This will determine whether or not you will need vented or ventless gas logs.
- Vented gas logs are dependent on flue size, and have to be installed in a wood burning fireplace with a chimney. Never install vented gas logs in a gas fireplace or gas stove. They should only be installed in a fireplace that can burn wood.
- Ventless gas logs don't need a chimney or vent, therefore most of the heat stays in your home. These gas logs are not allowed in some states, so before you install ventless gas logs in your home, make sure they are allowed in the area where you live.
