Hello, I’m Paul. I would like to introduce you to vent-free gas products and answer questions you might have.

First of all, what is vent-free all about?
Vent-free gas products are gas appliances that provide supplemental heat to a home. They are designed to be installed and operated without a vent or chimney. Because there is no vent, flue, or chimney required, all of the heat generated by the product goes directly into the home, making vent-free products 99 percent energy efficient.

Second, why should you choose vent- free?
Two Words: Efficiency and Ease. While vented units lose a significant amount of the warm air they produce up their chimneys, vent-free fireplaces are entirely self-contained, allowing all of the heat to remain inside the home. As a supplemental heat source, vent-free is ideal for a drafty house. Units can be installed in virtually any room. When piping and chimneys are not a consideration, installation becomes very simple and stress free. And because the units do not require electricity, they heat the home even during a power outage.

What is a vent-free fireplace?
A vent-free fireplace is a vent-free box with a factory installed vent-free burner and logs. Installation of a vent-free fireplace simply involves setting it in place in wood framing and hooking up the natural gas or liquid propane line to the unit. It can be installed in new or existing construction. Your vent-free fireplace can be hooked up to a remote control, thermostatic remote control, or traditional wall thermostat.

What is a vent-free stove?
A vent-free stove is an excellent source of supplemental heat and can be installed just about anywhere in your home. Your vent-free stove can be installed right on hardwood flooring, but never on carpeting. Just run a gas line to the location where you want the stove and you’re ready for heat.

What is a vent-free firebox?
A vent-free firebox is specifically approved, designed and produced for vent-free log sets. A vent-free firebox is made from layers of steel, non-combustible insulation, and a masonry- lined interior to create the authentic fireplace experience.

What is a vent-free log set?
A vent-free log set can be used in a pre-existing masonry fireplace, a prefabricated wood-burning fireplace, or in an approved vent-free firebox. Your vent-free log set can serve as an excellent supplemental heat source. All you will need is a gas line run into the fireplace and you’re ready to go. Your vent-free log set can be run with either an open or a closed damper.

Should you be afraid of vent-free?
NO. Vent-free appliances are designed to burn clean and work with 99% efficiency. All vent-free appliances are equipped with an Oxygen Detection Safety Pilot (or ODS) system. In the rare case where the oxygen level in a room starts to drop below a normal level, the ODS shuts off the gas supply to the appliance. Over a 20 year history covering the sale of more than 8 million ODS-equipped vent-free products in the U.S., there have been no documented deaths associated with emissions from vent-free gas products.
