Vent Free Gas Logs--Questions???
I am going to replace my gas logs because my current set is a cheapie. I stopped at a local fireplace shop and the salesman showed me some vent-free logs. I was really impressed with the heat these produce. After doing some research though, I am finding mixed opinions. When I run my vented logs now, it seems very drafty in my great room. I was wondering if I ran the vent-free logs with the damper partially open, could I still get heat and eliminate the worry about fumes. Also, what about the soot and vapor? Is this really a big concern? We have natural gas and the logs would really very seldom be used. May once a week, it that. Like I said earlier, I was going to replace my gas logsno matter what, but I like the idea of having some heat when I am running my gas logs. Right now I feel like the room actually gets colder when I run my vented gas logs. Is nyone else doing this?
