Vented propane gas logs stand apart from their vent-free cousins with their ultra-realistic flames. These log sets look just like wood burning fires. Knowing this, it may not surprise you that vented gas log sets should be installed into a wood burning fireplace (whether masonry or prefab).
Because you must keep the damper open while you burn, vented gas logs release a lot of heat up the chimney. They are mostly decorative, but provide a supplemental heat to those nearby.
Ventless gas logs, in contrast, provide far more heat than their vented cousins, but they don’t look as realistic. Which is better? It’s really up to you.
