Default Re: High Humidity in House

True...unless the renter does not open it. There are zero regulations in Idaho regarding Vent Free gas fireplaces. This house is a rental. My theory is they open the damper and all the Heat goes up the chimney. They close it and they feel the heat. Wouldn’t be the craziest thing I’ve ever seen.

If the vent free gas logs is the moisture problem they would be better off replacing it with a vented log set instead of having the damper open while using the present set up. Using ventless gas logs with an open damper is a complete waste of money..
