February: Vent-Free Fireplace

Sound like a pipe dream? Not with vent-free gas fireplace appliances. They hook right up to a gas line, go on with the flick of a wall switch or click of a remote, and provide real flames that burn much hotter and cleaner than traditional gas or wood-burning fireplaces. There’s no need for a flue since fuel burns so efficiently; a sensor and safety valve ensure that carbon monoxide won’t build up. Available as log sets, inserts, and full fireplaces in a range of sizes, there’s an option to suit every home (for retailers, go to hpba.org).
