I have removed a vented gas log set and want to know if it is possible to install a vent-free set. My home is at an elevation of 6800 feet. I am told that the ODS which is essential for vent-free operation will not work at that elevation.

Our Answer:

That is correct. Vent free appliances are not recommended above 4,500 feet of elevation. Because of lower oxygen levels, the ODS will frequently cause pilot outage. A vented unit is the best type of appliance for higher elevations.
