What’s The Difference Between Vented & Vent-Free?

Vented log sets are designed for use in a working fireplace with a working chimney. If you currently have a wood-burning fireplace and are looking to convert it to burn gas, vented gas log sets make it easy. With vented gas logs, it is important to remember that the damper must be open before you can enjoy a fire.

Vent-free gas log sets typically produce more heat than vented gas logs, and do not require a functioning fireplace and chimney system. If your current fireplace or chimney is damaged and not able to safely host a fire, vent-free gas logs can make enjoying your fireplace possible again. However, compared to vented gas logs, vent-free gas log sets tend to be a little less realistic-looking.

Last spring I bought a home with a pellet stove and I didn’t have a clue how to turn it on let alone use it. I didn’t know who to call but after doing a Google search I found Tri-County Hearth & Patio/ Magic Broom. I have to say that I am a little weary when it comes to service companies because I never really feel like I am getting what I am paying for. The Tri-County technician arrived at my home on time, in a lettered van, and a clean uniform. He took me through everything I needed to do to properly run and maintain my stove. The best part was that he didn’t talk down to me or get frustrated even after the million questions I asked. I would highly recommend this company to anyone.
