:)Does anyone have a propane, ventless fireplace? Does it produce a lot of soot? Any issues? We're looking at putting one in our house. There's no way to do a direct vent because it is on an inside wall. Dh says that we're going to keep the size of it small in BTU ratings because of being in Florida, for the occasional holiday ambience ----as small as 10,000 BTUs but no more than 23,000 BTUs which is about the size of a large burner on a cooktop. Lots of opinions on both sides, and it's very confusing.

Hoping someone here has advice. :)

We had one in our home in NC. We didn't like that it was ventless. Even though it was safe, we could always smell the gas every time we used it. Even after 3 years, the smell just didn't go away. So I'm not saying you shouldn't have a ventless gas fireplace; I am suggesting that you research and ask lots of questions!
