    We have two DV NG stoves at our old house, and the flames are basically yellow. In pondering what we will be using as suplimental heat in a planned addition at the Cottage, we have considered a DV propane stove. But...we cook with propane, and the flames are definately blue, which makes me wonder if the stoves will be also.

    So-if you ahve a DV LP stove-are the flames blue, or yellow?

    The DV woodstove & fireplace looking appliances are adjusted so the
    flame looks yellow & duplicates the look a wood burning flame. Wood
    never burns blue unless you add chemicals...The gas flame is actually
    made dirtier by tweaking the AIR-TO-FUEL (ATF) mixture at the air
    shutter. The air is minimized until it reaches a more realistic
    presentation. If it's minimized TOO much, it'll turn more orange & will
    soot up the inside of both the appliance & the venting. It may even soot
    up the outside of your house on a horizontal vent configuration...
    Your kitchen cook stove burns a nice clean blue as it's given a LOT of
    air in the ATF.
    HTH...

    hm...well that explains the lower efficency rating vs vent free stoves/fireplaces. Thanks!
