What kind of gas log?

You have choices when it comes to gas logs: Direct-vent, vented or vent-free. Factors such as local building codes, fireplace placement, efficiency and looks will all play a part in your decision.

Vented gas logs give you a large, realistic flame that closely resembles a wood fire. If the aesthetics and atmosphere a wood fire gives is what you want, this is the best choice. However, because vented logs require an open chimney flue or damper, you’re not going to get great efficiency when it comes to heating.

Direct-vent gas logs are used in direct-vent propane fireplaces, which use air pulled in from the outdoors for combustion. No flue is needed, thus the fireplace or freestanding stove you’re using them in can be placed anywhere in your home.

Vent-free gas logs operate with the chimney flue closed. That gives you better heating efficiency and they can be controlled by a thermostat. But you won’t have as high or realistic flames as you get with vented gas logs. They also must be kept at least three feet away from anything combustible such as furniture, curtains, plants and clothing.

If you don’t have an existing masonry or brick fireplace in your home, you can still get that charming ambiance with direct vent and vent-free propane fireplaces and gas stoves.
