Vent-Free Gas Products Help Consumers Save Money, Energy This Winter PDF Print E-mail

Arlington, VA. – October 13, 2010 – Regardless of this winter’s home heating prices, consumers could be saving money by installing energy-efficient, environmentally friendly vent-free gas products to help heat their home, according to the Vent-Free Gas Products Alliance, a coalition of companies that manufacture vent-free gas products--such as fireplaces, logs, stoves, inserts and wall heaters.


“Consumers could be saving money on their home heating bills by installing vent-free gas products,” said Sue Walker, chairman of the Vent-Free Gas Products Alliance. “Our products are extremely efficient, delivering tremendous value, warmth and comfort.”


Like many home furnaces, vent-free gas products are fueled using natural gas or propane. But unlike these devices, environmentally friendly vent-free gas appliances operate at 99% efficiency, delivering 99¢ worth of heat for every energy dollar spent.


Vent-free gas heating appliances are modern, cost-effective and easy to install. Because they require no chimney or vent, a vent-free gas system is less expensive, much faster and easier to install than other types of heating systems. And since they don’t operate on electricity, they will continue to provide a reliable heat source when power outages might otherwise leave homeowners cold this winter.


In addition to saving money and energy, vent-free gas products have a remarkable safety record. These products have been available to consumers for more than 30 years, with more than 20 million units sold.


Vent-free gas products also encourage economy and comfort from zone heating, focusing warmth where needed and saving more than 20% on your energy costs, according to the U.S. Department of Energy.
