Ventless Fireplace Advantages

Before you decide what kind of fireplace to put in your home, there are a couple ventless fireplace advantages you need to know about.

Is Ventless Gas Better than Real Wood?

Burning real wood in a brick-and-mortar fireplace does have a certain aesthetic appeal. It can add a lot of character to a home, and, depending on the wood type, provide a very pleasing aroma. All that being said, there are a lot of reasons why many homeowners prefer a ventless fireplace to the traditional model.

Ventless Fireplace Advantages

  • Ventless means exactly that. If you have a home without a traditional chimney, you can get a fireplace installed quickly and simply.
  • Burning real wood is very rustic, but it can also get very messy. First, you need a place to store the wood. Second, you need to account for cleaning ash out of the fireplace. Many people don't want to deal with all the hassle. Ventless means that you don't have to.
  • Unless you're buying wood from a dealer, chopping and splitting your own wood is a lot of hard work. It's great exercise, but it might not be how you want to spend a Saturday afternoon away from the office. Ventless is 100% pain-free (unless you touch the fire).
  • Ventless fireplaces are a lot cheaper than a traditional installation. You don't have to buy brick or pay for a lot of costly home modifications. And who doesn't like a low price tag?

    Yes, they are considered safe. They will typically have oxygen depletion sensors that automatically shut them off if there is not enough fresh air available. It is common for furnace units to come with high altitude kits. Whether or not a ventless appliance had one would vary by product.
