Ventless gas logs are often referred to as vent-free gas logs. These special logs have specifically designed burners that burn the gas cleanly and produce almost no exhaust. Ventless gas fireplace insert ranges in sizes between 16 inches to 30 inches.
Ventless gas fireplace installation
Installing vent-free gas logs is not a DIY job. Installation must be performed by a professional who can do the proper tests on your gas pressure and make sure that the installation meets building codes and follows the health and safety specifications required. The designer technician will need to check if you need a ventless natural gas fireplace insert or a ventless propane fireplace.
Ventless gas logs can be install in any fireplace that’s fully capable of burning wood and are burned with the damper close. They’re also designed for use in any certified vent-free firebox.

Ventless gas logs risks
Although less expensive and easier to install (considering they’re freestanding), the gas and propane options do have some risks since there’s no chimney to expel their gases to the outside. Ventless fireplaces don’t include a chimney, vent, or damper. For this reason, some countries, states, and cities have made ventless gas logs illegal due to health and safety concerns due to the lack of ventilation, therefore questioning its safety.
Ventless fireplaces fueled by gas or propane rely on indoor air for combustion, and they exhaust a low level of their combustion gases into the room, similar to a gas range in a kitchen.
Ventless logs smell
Ventless logs produce an unmistakeable odor. There is no way of preventing this, it is simply the nature of burning natural gas in your home without exhausting the fumes up a chimney. In a perfect world, the natural byproduct of burning “pure” natural gas is water vapor and carbon dioxide, and many people believe that burning natural gas in your home should produce no odor…so they think there is something awry with their ventless logs when they produce a smell. However, the science behind the different types of gas fireplaces contradicts this claim.
The gas at to your house is not perfect. It contains small amounts of impurities and additives, one of which is the rotten egg smell which is added so that you can smell a gas leak if it occurs. The most common rotten smelling additive is Methyl Mercaptan, when burning, it smells more like burnt matches mixed with rotten eggs. Sulfur dioxide can irritate the eyes and respiratory tract in concentrated amounts. Gas suppliers claim that the amount is so minute that it poses no health risk, however many people actually experience discomfort when burning ventless logs.
What can you do if you have vent free logs and simply cannot live with the odor? If your fireplace has a functional chimney, open the damper in your fireplace.
