Choosing a ventless fireplace for our home involves more than aesthetics. Because the propane burner releases unburned combustion byproducts into the living area, operating instructions must be followed closely to prevent a buildup of carbon monoxide or a depletion of oxygen in the home. In addition, ventless fireplaces may raise the humidity level in the home, causing problems with mold or mildew. The first one we do is measuring the room where we intend to place the ventless fireplace. Then, we should also compare the square footage we have calculated to the manufacturer’s recommendations to meet its safety.
Then, we can look for a model of ventless fireplace with an automatic shutdown in the event of a venting or combustion problem, in addition to an oxygen meter and carbon monoxide detector. These may avert potentially life-threatening issues with our ventless fireplace. We can also check the safety standards of the ventless fireplace to find out it if is approved for our intended use. Using the ventless fireplace for an hour or two in the evening, to set the mood for rest and relaxation, may be safe, but running the heater for more than 6 or 7 hours typically is not. We should pay close attention to any safety precautions listed in the manufacturer’s operating instructions, along with suggested uses and special requirements.
After that, we should check the building codes for our city or town. Some states prohibit the use of ventless fireplace, and some municipalities prohibit their use even if the state does not. We should also consider the appearance of the ventless fireplace, once all safety issues have been addressed. We can choose the ventless fireplace that best complements our decor. The color can also be matched with our wall color or other furniture in the same room to have a balance.
