Vented Gas Logs

If you are looking for the most realistic flame that resembles a wood fire, vented logs are your best choice.  These produce tall yellow flames that wrap around the logs creating the natural warmth and ambiance of a real fire. 

Vented logs need to be installed in a fully operational wood-burning fireplace as these logs do not burn the gas cleanly and generate some exhaust that is very similar to a real wood fire.  Therefore, with vented logs the chimney vent or flue needs to be open to allow any air to escape up the chimney.  The advantage of a vented system is that fires need oxygen to burn.  These logs produce some soot when the flame touches the log but do not require much cleanup.
