Are there advantages of having a ventless propane fireplace insert over a vented? Can a ventless propane fireplace be turned on by an external thermostat and run when the power goes off?

Our Answer:

Ventless and vented fireplace inserts both have their own set of advantages and drawbacks. Vented fireplaces use no room air for combustion and give a realistic flame pattern, but are not as efficient as a vent free insert and individual exhaust and intake liners must be used. Ventless appliances require no vent pipe to be run, are very efficient, and simple to install. However, they use room air for combustion and must be serviced on a yearly basis to prevent the release of harmful materials. Both of these categories of insert can be equipped with a remote or wall thermostat. Millivolt (standing pilot) inserts can indeed be used in the event of a power outage as well.
