Gas log sets simulate a cozy or dramatic wood-burning fire, and they come in many affordable and stylish designs which can complement any type of décor. Benefits of a Gas Log Set:
Today’s gas logs look remarkably realistic, much more than previous models. The ceramic logs are carefully molded to have the appearance of real firewood, complete with red glowing embers. The logs have knotholes, natural bark patterns, ax marks, and forked branches. natural gas and liquid propane release fewer pollutants into the air than wood burning.
Gas logs provide you with the ambiance of a fireplace without the hassle of dealing with real firewood.
The maintenance required on gas log sets is a lot easier than wood-burning units. Safe operation of gas heating appliances involves routine maintenance in which several components are checked.
Enjoying the gas- or propane-powered fire is as simple as flipping a switch.
You have the choice of a vented or vent-free gas log set, which means it can work either with or without your damper open. With vented gas log sets, about 90% of the warmth of the fire is lost up the chimney; but this efficiency rate is almost identical to the efficiency of traditional fireplaces. You can enjoy more heat from a vent-free unit; but these appliances are prohibited in many areas. It is considered completely safe to use a vent-free unit as long as the appliance is in a room of an appropriate size as instructed by the manufacturer.
Gas log sets come in a wide range of styles and sizes. The faux logs you choose can be as small as 12” long or up to about 60”. Whether your décor is rustic, contemporary, traditional, country, minimalist, or eclectic, there are gas log sets that will complement your home.
The most important things to do involve having your gas log set installed and regularly maintained by chimney professionals, which will allow you to enjoy the benefits of gas logs in safety.
