When people think of fireplaces, they commonly think of a mahogany structure with a hearth and a mantel. While very beautiful, that’s not the only kind of fireplace there is. There certainly are plenty of materials to make a fireplace and each lends itself to a certain style or design. Of course, rock structures are a common type of fireplace. I grew up with one in the basement. It was a great place for the family to gather through the winter months, especially just before Christmas. There are plenty of Christmas pictures of me opening gifts with that beautiful fireplace in the background. To this day, when I see a similar fireplace it takes me back to those wonderful moments.
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.
