Vented gas fireplaces are very similar to traditional wood burning fireplaces.  They require ventilation to filter the air.
The gas fireplace has a chamber where combustion takes place.  The chamber is equipped with safety valves that allow the desired amount of gas to be supplied to a burner and the necessary air for combustion.  Ignition is automatic.  Combustion is monitored by a detection system that turns off the gas in case of no flame.
All gas fireplace units are safe.  There is no release of vapors, particles or other air pollutants due to the ventilation process and the efficiency of the gas system.  All fuel is burned cleanly and completely.
Yes, in same case, a gas fireplace can give off more heat than a conventional fireplace.  Plus, the heat level is quickly and easily adjusted by means of the remote control.
One of the main advantages of a gas fireplace system is its energy fireplace.  All fuel that is burned is converted directly into heat and light.  This means that gas fireplaces required only a small amount of fuel to produce a large amount of radiant energy.
Gas fireplaces use any type of gas normally used at home, that is, either natural gas or propane.
No risk at all!  We insist, this is due to some almost standard characteristics of the gas fireplaces:
The first is the fact that gas fireplaces burn 100% of the fuel they are feed.  No gas or smoke is released into the house.
The second is that there is safety backup support, a sensor that detects whether there may be any gas leakage. If an abnormality is detected, this mechanism is activated immediately.
The third is that gas fireplaces are equipped with a glass door that must be closed for operating.  This effectively seals the gas chamber from the rest of the house.  Thus, the air and particles are vented outside the house, free from any contact with the living area.
Most are direct vent fireplaces. That means the fireplaces have a fixed glass front that seals the gas burner.  100% of the air combustion used by the fireplace comes from outside the house through a coaxial tube.  An inner tube within the larger tube removes all combustible gases, maintaining internal air quality.  Ventilation can be carried out horizontally through an external wall or vertically through the roof.
No, direct vent fireplaces are sealed combustion system that require the glass to function properly.
The gas fireplace is quickly and easily started by using the remote control.  You can use de remote control to switch the gas fireplace on and off, regulate the heat, and adjust the height of the flame.
