Why should I not use this with gas logs?

Our Answer:

The main reason these are not recommended is due to the safety liabilities involved with gas logs. Top mounted dampers are easy to forget about and if the log set is operated with the damper closed, harmful byproducts can back up into the home. In the event of a wood fire, the smoke would serve as a visual reminder if the damper is forgotten about, however you would not be able to detect the carbon monoxide in the air from a gas log set.
