Vented Gas Logs vs. Vent-Free Gas Logs: Pros and Cons Denver, NC
Close-up of flames shooting from barbecue grill

Vented Gas Logs: Vented gas logs need to be burned in a wood-burning fireplace with the flue open, as they create some exhaust like burning wood does. The number one reason that people choose vented gas logs is that they look realistically like wood burning fires. That’s because of the way that the flames move, and the fact that they do produce exhaust like wood fires. The smell travels up the open flue, rather than circulating through your home.

There are two downsides to vented gas logs. First, because the flue needs to be open, heat is lost that travels up the chimney rather than heating the home. The other downside is that in creating these realistic flames and losing heat up the chimney, vented gas logs require more gas than their non-vented counterparts.

Vent-Free Gas Logs: Vent-free gas logs, also known as ventless gas logs, are similar to the vented gas logs, except that in this case, because you do not need to leave the flue open, the heat is dispersed more efficiently through the room. This makes vent-free gas logs much more energy efficient. These gas logs burn off water vapor and carbon dioxide. Because of the style, they do not look as realistic as the vented gas logs.

Our Client Reviews

Steve & Melinda Semer

We contacted Quality Propane after many incidents of poor customer service with our previous propane provider. From the beginning we noticed a difference. They came out immediately and gave us a brand new tank, hooked it up, and filled it on the day they had arranged with us. Since then, we have enjoyed their ‘flawless automatic service.’ We always have propane available for out ‘Chimnea’ fireplace in our living room. It is truly the best decision that we’ve made

Clark & Donna Little

We recently purchased a home where upon inspection of our propane furnace and gas logs by Quality Propane found several issues that needed attention. Tyler came out and took care of everything. He was very thorough and took time to explain our systems, even set us up with a new remote control and thermostat that work great! From our very first call, the service has been outstanding. I am so glad we called. Certainly is obvious why our neighbors and friends all use them. In our view, their "Worry Free Service Guarantee" is an understatement. It is a sincere pleasure working with such a great company. Thank you Tyler, Terry, Vickie and the whole team!

I switched from a larger propane company and am so glad that I made the switch! The service was fantastic and everyone I spoke with was just as fantastic and knowledgeable. I am a huge proponent for supporting local businesses and QP is a stellar example of the reason why. The service, knowledge, friendliness and common sense was evident. In addition, the technician expressed his gratitude and how much he liked working for QP. All signs of a great local business!
