So if you want to be one of the first to own the best gas fireplace insert on the market, be sure to place your order right away!

What is the difference between a direct vent gas fireplace and a typical vented or unvented (vent-free) gas log?

Direct vent gas fireplaces are the ultimate choice when you need heat! The direct vent firebox has a burner system and logs that are surrounded by a hollow area. Room air is drawn into the hollow area around the combustion chamber by a circulating fan. The air is heated and then blown back into the room, so the room air continues to get warmer and warmer as it is cycled through the system. The air from your room never comes in direct contact with the fire, so there is no exhaust or fumes coming into the house. This makes the direct vent gas fireplace system is an extremely efficient heat source.

How does the venting work?

Direct vent fireplaces use a unique technology that incorporates a dual venting system. The firebox itself is closed off to the room with an air-tight glass front that is covered by a protective flat wire mesh (so you don't burn yourself on the hot glass). 2 flexible vents connected to 2 holes in the top of the firebox. The venting is run all the way to the top of the chimney and held in place with a special cap. One of the vents draws fresh air down the chimney to feed the gas fire while the other vent gets rid of the exhaust up the chimney. Unlike burning a real wood fire or natural vent gas fireplace, the sealed combustion system prevents the fire from drawing hot air out of your home and sucking in cold air to replace it. The venting needed is an inexpensive flexible aluminum vent very similar to what is used to vent a dryer. We do not supply the venting since you can pick it up from a local supplier.

  1. Question #9526 - Posted: 12/29/2016 9:05:21 PM

    Gas Logs Question

    http://www.hansenwholesale.com/gas-logs/logsonly.asp

    QUESTION: I have a gas burning fireplace with a broken log. It was originally a wood-burning fireplace built in the early 1960s. It has a damper which is always open when burning. The fireplace was converted professionally to gas sometime before 2000. I converted it to remote-control lighting in 2010 using a reputable firm. Sometime later, one of the logs was dropped and cracked in half. It is held together by internal wires. I would like to replace one log rather than the entire set. Possible?

    ANSWER: It is possible, but that depends on the type of gas log set you have. If you can email us a picture of your gas logs, maybe we can find what you need. Email pictures to: gregt@hansenwholesale.com

  2. Question #9525 - Posted: 12/29/2016 8:58:26 PM

    Gas Logs Question

    http://www.hansenwholesale.com/gas-logs/best-gas-logs.asp

    QUESTION: I have a classic fireplace 26" in the back, 36" in the front and 26" depth. I live in a two story house built in 1935. The furnace broke and needs to be replaced. I'm looking for something to install in my fireplace to warm up the living room. I live in California so it has to be vented. What do you recommend to keep my room the warmest it can be? log set or would an insert be better?

    ANSWER: A vented gas log is not going to provide very much warmth for your room. Since you cannot install a ventless gas log in California, you are left with the option of installing a gas insert. I would suggest taking a look at the Real Fyre Direct Vent gas insert.

  3. Question #9524 - Posted: 12/29/2016 8:51:36 PM

    Gas Logs Question

    http://www.hansenwholesale.com/gas-logs/gaslogfaqs.asp

    QUESTION: i live in a 100 year old house and my fireplace was for coal and has a metal firebox. i have burned wood in it until last year, until we realized there was some leakage of smoke from the chimney upstairs. Would it be safe to use vented gas logs? Would we need to line the chimney like we would need to if we continued burning wood?

    ANSWER: Burning a vented gas log produces smoke just like burning real wood, so yes, you would have to reline or repair the chimney. I would suggest considering a ventless gas log so do not have to worry about smoke.

  4. Question #9523 - Posted: 12/29/2016 8:45:42 PM

    Gas Logs Question

    http://www.hansenwholesale.com/gas-logs/gaslogfaqs.asp

    QUESTION: what size and kind can I put in a woodstove "MORE HEAT" that has a door 20 BY 8.5 FIREBOX 28 BY 18 AND IS 12 INCHE DEEP and will they warm the stove enough to product heat with the fan.

    ANSWER: Unfortunately, you cannot install gas logs in a wood stove. Wood stoves are designed to operate with much lower draft than gas logs and the venting does not meet the minimum venting diameter. Even more, air tight wood stoves are designed to be burned with the doors closed, which is a definite no no when it comes to burning gas logs since they must be burned with the doors opened. There are other reasons why gas logs will not work in a stove, but I will not belabor that here. For more details, read more about Where Gas Logs Can Be Installed.

  5. Question #9522 - Posted: 12/29/2016 7:59:50 PM

    Gas Logs Question

    http://www.hansenwholesale.com/gas-logs/gaslogfaqs.asp

    QUESTION: I have a 24" peterson gas log set. The gas line in the fireplace is slightly larger than the connection for flex tube that leads to the gas burner. Can I add a smaller fitting to attach to the line leading to the burner?

    ANSWER: That should not be a problem unless the incoming gas pressure is higher than allowed by the installation manual, so you may want to check that.

  6. Question #9521 - Posted: 12/29/2016 7:53:16 PM

    Gas Logs Question

    http://www.hansenwholesale.com/gas-logs/rhpeterson.asp

    QUESTION: I occasionally turn our ceiling fan on low with the blades drawing the air upward while using our ventless gas logs. Our installation manual says a ceiling fan should not be used when the ventless logs are on. The flame of the gass logs appears to be unaffected. Is there a problem in having a ceiling fan on at the same time as the ventless gas logs? Thank you.

    ANSWER: Running a ceiling fan to destratify the air in your room makes sense from a heating efficiency/conservation standpoint, so I understand why you are asking your question. The responsible answer is that the owners manual says not to run your fan when you are operating your ventless gas log, so we cannot tell you that it is OK to do so. With that said, drafts can certainly cause ventless gas logs to NOT burn correctly and start producing toxic odorless Carbon Monoxide. It is safer for the manufacturer to tell you not to run your fan at all in order to avoid a potentially hazardous outcome rather than suggest that you can run it on a low speed in reverse with no ill effect. They cannot test the actual impact of doing so in your particular room. Their ultimate concern is to prevent any draft from affecting the flame. Whether you decide to follow the instructions is ultimately your decision...I will leave it at that.

  7. Question #9520 - Posted: 12/29/2016 7:31:40 PM

    Gas Logs Question

    http://www.hansenwholesale.com/gas-logs/vented-vs-ventfree.asp

    QUESTION: I do not really need the heat, and I have a fireplace already,but, the damper is either all the way open or completely closed. can I get that fixed so i can have it open part of the way so all the hot air does not go up the chimney thereby kind of making it silly to have one

    ANSWER: Technically, a vented gas log is supposed to be burned with the damper completely open. Plus, you cannot ever completely close the damper just in case there is a gas leak, so there is a clamp that is included with the burner system that gets attached to the damper to prevent it from ever closing completely. So if you do not really need the heat, then the way your damper operates is sufficient for a vented gas log. Whether you close the damper slightly to preserve some of the heat will not make much difference, you will get most of the heat from a vented gas log radiated into the room from the ceramic in the logs themselves. If you are really concerned about getting heat (which you say you are not), then you should consider buying a ventless gas log.

  8. Question #9519 - Posted: 12/29/2016 7:02:36 PM

    Gas Logs Question

    http://www.hansenwholesale.com/gas-logs/default.asp

    QUESTION: Question - Are there burners or logs that are better for use with propane to achieve the best flame presentation? Currently my propane flame in my FP is not as robust as I would like. Just curious if there are options that are better for propane specifically.

    ANSWER: Whether you are burning natural gas or liquid propane, each type of burner is configured for optimal performance for the gas you are using. So you would need to make sure you order a burner system for Propane gas, otherwise it will not perform properly. With that said, if you want the most robust flame, we would recommend either the G4 or G45 burners since they operate at the highest BTU (the most flame). However, neither of these may not be the best choice for your particular fireplace depending on the type of fireplace you have and the dimensions. Please send us some pictures of your current setup so we can see what you have and make further recommendations. Email pictures to: gregt@hansenwholesale.com.

  9. Question #9518 - Posted: 12/29/2016 6:53:51 PM

    Gas Logs Question

    http://www.hansenwholesale.com/gas-logs/gas-log-burn-cost.asp

    QUESTION: Where do I find a remote control for my gas logs? And how much?

    ANSWER: Gas log remote controls are not universal in design. They are made as a transmitter and receiver combination, the receiver usually a built-in component of the gas log valve and burner system. So if you have an existing gas log with a remote and you are looking to replace a remote that is no longer working, you are going to need to contact the manufacturer of the gas log system you own and see if they can supply you with a replacement remote. If you are wanting to add a remote control to an existing gas log, that is a different story. In most cases, you will need to replace the entire burner system with one that is remote capable. Replacing the burner system may also require you to replace the logs since not all logs are compatible with all burners. If you email us some pictures of your fireplace we may be able to offer more direct advice. Send your pictures to: gregt@hansenwholesale.com...or just give us a call at: 1-800-201-1193.

  10. Question #9517 - Posted: 12/29/2016 6:49:03 PM

    Gas Logs Question

    http://www.hansenwholesale.com/gas-logs/vented/default.asp

    QUESTION: I have a gas log fireplace that is over 50 years old and works great but the logs have burnt up. It's a vented system, the Logs are straight, 19 " long and 4" in diameter the second log is 2.5"diameter and also 19" long Do you have anything even close?

    ANSWER: We do have logs that are very close in size to what you have. However, we need to make sure that they are compatible with the burner system that you have. Can you please email us some pictures of your setup so we can take a look?
