How Energy Efficient Are Gas Logs?
On average, gas logs use between 55,000-85,000 BTU’s per hour.
In comparison, seasoned firewood burns at a rate of 18-23 pounds of wood per hour (to put out the same amount of heat).
Statistics from Nashville, Tennessee concluded that average hourly cost of burning gas logs ran about $1.03 per hour, whereas the average hourly cost of burning wood was $1.37 per hour.
That comes out to a savings of 25%!
(Numbers were deduced from 2005 surveys conducted by Tennessee gas companies and firewood distributors.)
Where Can You Install Gas Logs?
Consider installing gas logs in your existing fireplace or hiring a contractor to install gas logs in your master bedroom, great room, or rec room. Gas logs add atmosphere and warmth to any room.
Should I Install Vented or Unvented Gas Logs?
- Unvented gas logs put out more heat, create less pollution, and use less gas
- Vented gas logs smell better, do not require a CO2 detector, and are considered safer (by some) than unvented gas logs
When deciding which type of gas logs to install, you’ll need a professional to come evaluate the following:
- What type of fireplace you have
- What size gas logs will be best for your set up
- How much BTU your fireplace can handle
- What kind of venting you have available
- What types of gas logs are legal in your area
