Outdoor use of Rasmussen Gas Logs and Alterna Products
Vented – We offer our Pan Burners and Grates in Stainless Steel, with Volcanic Ash as the pan filler, for Outdoor Match-Lighted use. We do not recommend using a control system outdoors, because:
1) Pilots blow out in the wind, creating a nuisance issue for the customer;
2) The components were not made nor hardened for the harsh outdoors environment, and are not warranted for outdoor use, by either Rasmussen or the component manufacturers.
Vent-free – Our sets that are certified to the unvented heater standard are not intended for outdoor use. The valves and other components are not "hardened" for the weather and humidity, and will corrode, which is not a warrantable condition by either the component manufacturers or Rasmussen. The Stainless Steel Chassis versions offered for the AFB, AFM, and AFS are for design purposes, not an invitation to use outdoors.
Question: “I have an Outdoor Vent-free Fireplace – what kind of set can I put in this?
Answer: Sorry, Rasmussen does not yet have a solution for this. Our sets that are certified to the unvented heater standard are not intended for outdoor use – the valves and other components are not "hardened" for the weather and humidity, and will corrode, which is not a warrantable condition by either the component manufacturers or Rasmussen.
Vented pan burners produce soot. Without a chimney to exhaust the products of combustion away from the fireplace and above any structure, the soot will discolor the front of the fireplace, the ceiling and furnishings nearby. Again, not a warrantable condition.
Architects love to spec in outdoor unvented fireplaces because they don’t have to worry about how high the chimney will need to be to clear nearby structures, or the additional expense of the chimney. But in making the decision to go with such a fireplace, they leave the issue of what will fill the opening to another day and person.
What you really need is a non-sooting gas log set which can be used outdoors. We have tried a couple of different designs over the past few years of development to fill this niche, but have been unsuccessful in achieving this, especially given the shifting conditions of a hostile outdoor environment. I do not know of any manufacturer who offers such a set, nor does Rasmussen have a time when we expect to have such a set.
