    We want to install gas logs in our present fireplace, but we are not sure what product to consider. Our fireplace does not develop enough draft unless one of our outside doors are open. Our intent is not to use the gas logs for heat, but for ambience, however a little heat radiating is desired. We have some in our household who are sensitive to smells, so we are unsure if the unvented logs are for us. Since we have trouble with the draft in our chimney, I am not sure if the vented logs would work either. Do you have any suggestions?


    Of course, the ultimate is a gas burning sealed fireplace insert. However, you might also consider some of the "partial vent" or "reduced vent requirement" logs on the market from Peterson and Monesson. These logs need less draft to function. Finally, you could use unvented and open the damper....you'll still get some radiant heat
