Venting Options

Logs Burning

Gas Log Sets are usually divided into three categories, Direct Vent, Vented, and Vent Free. Each venting option has its pros and cons. If you are choosing gas fire products for an existing fireplace, check to see which venting system is currently in place. If you are choosing fireplace products for a new fireplace, please consider the differences between these three options.

Direct Vent Systems

  • Multiple safety features such as an oxygen depletion sensor, and thermal glass

  • Must be installed in a fully functioning wood burning fireplace
