Smelly propane logs
[Return to Topics]

We were given a ventless gas log set and when we turn it on
it has a odor that's not a propane smell but a different smell, like paint or something.
It does it from the first instant it's turned on.
The fire place has not been redone for 20 year or more.
I don't know the brand .
I can't think of any more info, so it's kind of sketchy.

That might be the nature of the beast. Not long ago we were in a lodge that had ventless propane fireplaces. I didn't think there was much noticable smell, but others said right away they noticed it. Guess besides the smell there's humidity that accumulates if you run it long in a tight room.

Ventless heaters also burn the room air,so anything in the atmosphere gets burned also.Things like room freshener,carpet fresh,Febreeze,fabric softener fragrances.These can contribute greatly to "heater odors" when they pass thru the heater and burn.
