Early Ventless Fireplace

Recommended Posts

I have never seen anything like this. It looks like an early attempt at a ventless fireplace.

That's one odd ball setup. I have never seen gas feeds like the ones you have under these logs. Do you think that the home owner purchased the logs and never bothered to remove the bag?

The ANSI Z21.11.2 standard for unvented room heaters dates back to 1962. The Oxygen Depletion Sensor safety pilot did not come into general use until around 1980. This is probably an early gas appliance designed to burn manufactured gas such as from coal gasification. Regardless, it is wholly unsuited for use now.
