What Are Vent-Free Gas Logs?
Vent-free, or ventless, gas logs are fireplaces that exhaust their hot air into the living space in your home. They are in the same category as gas fireplaces and heaters that do not have vents. These attractive hearth products are an alternative to wood-burning or traditional vented fireplaces. In the past, vent-free gas logs weren’t as popular due to their nature to contain carbon monoxide emissions and soot deposits. However, modern technology and developments have made them more popular than ever! Today’s vent-free gas logs have a wide range of benefits while improving your energy efficiency, lowering your monthly energy bills, and your carbon footprint.
Vent-free gas logs work by releasing heat into the room they’re installed in. They circulate the same air in the room to keep you and your family warm in the winter. Some of the benefits of vent-free gas logs include:
Difference Between Vent-Free and Vented Gas Logs
As the names suggest, the main difference between vent-free and vented gas logs is the exhaust vent itself. Vented gas logs have an external vent that feeds in and exhausts air out, while vent-free gas logs exhaust 100% of the heated air into the home. This leads to a hotter room for vent-free units. It also means that a vent-free unit does not need to install any exterior constructions, such as chimneys and vents.

Ventless gas products do not need a vent or a chimney. This means fewer places to maintain.
Along with fewer maintenance areas, vent-free gas logs are more affordable to install. You do not need to alter your house or install vents, chimneys, or other exhausts.
Non-vented gas fireplaces put out more BTU (British Thermal Unit – measures how much energy output a unit has) as none of the exhaust is wasted by leaving your house. All of the heat stays in your home.
Because there is no exhaust, many safety systems are in place. Vent-free gas logs have a built-in ODS (Oxygen Depletion Sensor) pilot assembly. This shuts off the gas if the pilot light goes out or the oxygen levels drop to an unsafe level in your home.
