Vent Free Gas Logs

Vent free, or vent less, gas logs offer heat, create less pollution than vented logs, are 99.9% efficient and are easy to operate. While vent free logs are not as realistic as vented logs, they produce massive amounts of heat. They do not require an open chimney so 100 percent of the heat is kept inside the home, and they use less gas. The specially designed burners burn gas cleanly and produce almost no exhaust, similar to the way a gas range works.

Vented Gas Logs

Vented gas logs, found North Carolina stores, provide tall realistic flames so are quite a decorative addition to your fireplace and to the room, whether it is a living room, family area, bar or study. The flames dance and wrap around the logs like real wood. They are so realistic that you can't tell them apart from a real wood burning fire. Vented gas logs require a fully functional fireplace that is able to burn real wood. Also, since the logs are designed to operate with an open damper, most of the heat that they generate escapes up the chimney, so they are not as heat efficient as the vent free logs.

Direct Vent Fireplaces--Attractive, Functional, and Inviting
A warm, crackling fire can be a cozy, welcoming retreat on cold and rainy afternoons in the Carolinas. Little else is as relaxing as sitting in front of the fire reading a good book. Direct vent fireplaces found in our Charlotte locations, can provide this with less mess. They have become more and more popular with homeowners since they provide the look of a real wood burning fire with the heat of a furnace.

What Are Direct Vent Fireplaces?
Unlike a typical fireplace that is structured with an open front, a direct vent fireplace vents more directly. This type of fireplace does not require a full chimney but is designed to vent horizontally via a sidewall or vertically, similar to the traditional style fireplace, through the roof. Fashioned to be more efficient, the burning chamber in a direct vent fireplace is completely enclosed. This holds and controls the heat to gain higher efficiency. This system also effectively uses outside air for combustion and, likewise, releases all gases outside.

As a direct vent fireplace functions using radiant and convective heat, this fireplace style offers so many benefits to the customer. Rather than having an open flame that draws oxygen from the room and expels gas simultaneously, radiant heat simply allows heat to flow through the glass enclosure of the direct vent fireplace. This enclosed fireplace also prevents particles from being released into your home, allowing for better air quality.

What Are the Advantages of A Direct Vent Fireplace?
Just as ambient as a regular fireplace, a direct vent fireplace offers a variety of advantages over a traditional gas fireplace.

  • Less chimney—The direct vent fireplace does not require vertical termination, so installation can be much easier and cheaper.
  • Radiant Heat—Radiant heat simply feels better. The glass enclosure on the direct vent fireplace encases the flame and does not take oxygen from the room. This type of heat can be felt even in rooms with tall ceilings.
  • Zone Heating - Find perfect direct vent fireplaces in North Carolina, which can be used to heat the rooms you use on a daily basis and not heat the rooms you don't use. This saves you a ton of money.
  • Beautiful, Realistic Look - Companies like Mendota have unsurpassed realism while still giving a maximum amount of heat.
