Ventless Fireplace Units/Gas Fireplaces
Available in select floor plans is a ventless (no chimney) fireplace unit. Ventless fireplaces are designed for gas logs only. These manufactured logs do not actually burn, but give the appearance of a “real” fire. The heat source of this unit is natural gas. A porcelain log set is provided with your home purchase. Do not, under any circumstances, burn wood in this type of fireplace. This type of unit requires special operation and maintenance procedures that are different from those of woodburning fireplaces. Please refer to the fireplace instructions to determine the proper use of this ventless unit. If you do not have your instructions, please contact our Service Request Department.
There is a shut-off on the gas line near its connection to each item in your home that operates on gas. In addition, there is a main shut-off at the meter. These are pointed out during the homeowner orientation. If you suspect a gas leak, leave the home and call the gas company immediately for emergency service.
