First, thanks to all who answered my inquiry about ventless gas logs. After
reviewing some articles and speaking with plumbers who also do gas work,
I've decided to go with the Vented Gas Logs. So, here are my questions:
1. The vented log will be in my current wood fireplace. I assume since the
chimney vented burning wood, it also can vent the vented logs. Correct?
2. How much heat do the vented logs put out? I'd assume that alot of the
heat goes up the chimney. So are these logs more decorative than heat
3. We are having a guy come out to estimate what it would cost to run a gas
line from the basement to the fireplace. Luckily the line would not need to
be tapped since it has a "valve" that can be tapped and opened. Plus that
tap is directly under the fireplace. I know the proce differs from state to
state due to regulation, but any idea of how much it will be to run a 10'
gal line from the tap to the fireplace? Since it looks "easy" I'd do it
myself, but I don't trust myself and would probably blow my house up.
Thanks in advance!!
