Vent Free - Do they smell ?
I have a basement masonary fireplace that is a woodburning fireplace. I am looking at options. A dealer said they sell vent free gas log sets. From what he said, I would install them and then shut my damper so the chimney is shut off. This would allow the log set to burn and the heat stays in the room. He said the downside is that it can make the room smell.
Is this actually true regarding its operation and smells?
I was basically trying to make this thing more efficient and easier than wood burning.
