Can Burning Charlotte Gas Logs Save You Money?
Here in Charlotte, we usually don’t deal with bitterly cold temperatures. A typical gas logs system costs approximately a dollar an hour to burn. If you install a blower (fan) with your gas logs, this can be enough to heat a good portion of your house. This can be significantly cheaper than running your furnace, and is much prettier.
Burning real wood will cost you more than a dollar per hour and will not put out nearly as much heat (most of it goes right up the chimney). Most people who switch from burning real wood in their chimneys to installing gas logs realize a savings of over $100 in heating costs during that first year alone – this adds up as the years pass. For these reasons, installing gas logs can not only add ambiance, but also save you money, especially if your gas logs are located in a part of your home where your family likes to gather.
