Outdoors a ventless gas log cannot deplete oxygen or fill your home with gas but a different set of issues ensues. Oxygen Sensors can get pollen and dust in them and wind can confuse the pilot assembly’s ability to provide continuous heat to the thermocouple. The design of the fireplace and the placement of the logs should be discussed with a professional to minimize these possibilities. These issues do not risk the safety of your family but if the thermocouple thinks the pilot is out because the wind is directing the flame in another direction, your gas log burner will turn itself off. An experienced installer will manipulate the mounting bracket to work around wind issues and position the Oxygen Depletion Sensors so they do not get clogged with pollen and dust.
Selecting an appropriate stone fireplace means picking a design that is right for your home, for instance there is little point in installing a magnificent and huge fireplace which then dwarfs the room, leaving virtually no actual living space. Do also bear in mind also that once installed the stone is not easily changed so it is important to select a stone material that you don’t easily tire of. This said you certainly can’t beat the permanence and illustrious looks of a stone fireplace which can appear as simply a box in your living room with a hanging mantel or with a mantel that has legs fastened on the wall. For large rooms with tall ceilings, a stone mantel can stretch up to the full height of the ceiling and display paintings or even a old tapestries.
