Unvented gas range?

TriathleteTriathlete Posts: 698 Officer
Mrs. T would like to replace our failed countertop electric with gas. Our current hood vents inside through a filter. Do I need to refit this with an externally vented hood? Seems to me like you are dumping carbon monoxide into the house unless you do.

The stove will be propane as we don't have natural gas.

Thx.

    We have an unvented gas fireplace that we put in about 6 months ago - propane out of an in-ground tank. No issues.
    Maybe if we tell people that the brain is an App, they will start using it.

    I never had any vents at all when I had a gas stove.

    Buy a propane and CO2 censor and keep them in the room.
    That nice blue flame is very clean, it is a bigger problem if someone leaves it on and it is not burning.

    Our fire will not run gas unless lit.

    No kidding. Don't gas stoves have a thermocouple/shut off device for that?

    BTW - Congrats on quitting smoking!!! :Rockon

    I had a buddy from HS walk in his parents front door with a smoke and woof flame on, the whole was singed.

    We had a house blow up in Iselin NJ from a NG leak.

    That was probably a leak (pipe), not gas running through an unlit appliance.

    Not when he shut the valve off after getting slightly burnt. The big one was blamed on a leaking pipe. but a censor would have saved that.

    I thought he might have been referring to the big one. I did not know that there were residential natural gas sensors.

    My parents have 2 gas sensors, one close to the NG gas heater and on close to the kitchen.

    Mine doesn't, and its only 6-7 year old KitchenAid model. My water heater does though.
