A Clean Burning Alternative to Wood Burning Fireplaces
Nothing says winter like a fire in the hearth and the family gathered around it. Gas logs are a popular way to keep a fire going without having to haul wood, clean up ash, or worry about tons of maintenance. In fact, this type of fireplace is easy to control and turns on at the flip of a switch – or by pressing a button on a remote from the warmth of your blanket-covered couch!
Gas Logs – What to Know:
Gas logs are a practical way to switch to a gas fireplace. A gas log is a flame-resistant, decorative log with a burner connected to a gas line – an electrical line isn’t required. They’re installed in a wood-burning fireplace with a working chimney. Gas logs come in many styles and types, and there are modern styles available like crushed glass, shapes, and stone.
Your fireplace damper will need to be clamped open by code – this allows heated air to leave the house or cold air to come into the house. You can get glass doors or an electronic damper to help keep warm air in the house and cold air out of the house.
There are measuring guides available to help you determine the scope of your gas log installation project.
