The way an electric fireplace insert works is quite simple. It involves placing an electric fireplace appliance into the center of the traditional fireplace. With the electronic variant now in place the ability for the traditional fireplace to emit heat is possible but it is no longer doing so by burning wood. While this is a very innovative method of using a fireplace but some may take a cynical look at the electric fireplace insert and say it is a bizarre concept because you already have a fireplace. Why would someone want to use an electric fireplace insert? There are a number of reasons.
Ventless gas logs are designed to be used indoors and have several safety features that make them safe inside your home. Manufacturers of ventless gas logs have a limit to the amount of BTU’s burned which limits the size of most unvented gas log burners to 30". The size of a firebox that would comfortably hold a 30" gas burner is 42" to 48" which is still a large fireplace. A standing pilot assembly stays lit and heat is tracked with a thermocouple. If the flames go out for any reason, the thermocouple cools and gas stops at the valve. Oxygen depletion sensors are also attached to the gas valve to ensure the flames do not burn up so much oxygen in the house that unsafe conditions are created.
