Are you considering installing gas logs in your home? There’s nothing like the warmth of a fire to bring holiday cheer to your home. Gas logs are now available in a variety of styles, sizes, and options, and many look just like a real fire.
Why Choose Gas Logs Instead Of A Wood Burning Stove?
If you’re trying to decide between a wood burning stove and a gas fireplace, consider the following advantages of gas logs:
Gas Logs Are Simple And Clean
Any time you want a fire, you just flip the switch. No hauling in wood from outside, no need to buy wood or keep a pile of wood in your back yard, and no need to clean up soot and ashes.
Gas Fireplaces Are Cost Effective
You’ll pay far less for the gas than you would for the wood required for a wood burning stove.
Gas Logs Are Safe
Wood fires create ash, which results in creosote build up in your chimney. You won’t have to haul wood (which can be bad for your back) or deal with fire hazards, either.
Gas Fireplaces Are Efficient
Your gas logs will put out heat while looking perfectly lovely all year long. They don’t require electricity, so you can use your gas logs when there is a blackout as well.
Gas Logs Are Better For The Environment
Gas burns much more cleanly than wood, meaning it is better for the world in general.
What About Unvented Gas Logs?
While most people opt for vented gas logs, unvented gas logs are becoming popular. Unvented gas logs are perfect options for those who want a fireplace, but who don’t have a good venting option or who don’t want to go through the hassle of venting.
Unvented gas logs are safe because they are designed to burn at a temperature that ensures almost complete fuel combustion. This greatly reduces the levels of carbon monoxide produced and released into the room, eliminating the need for costly venting. Your gas logs should have an automatic sensor that will ensure the gas logs turn off if the level of carbon monoxide in the room accumulates to a level of concern.
