Benefits of Natural Gas Logs & Fireplaces
One Time Set-up: Gas logs and fireplaces need to be set up only once. This means there are no logs to carry in and no ashes to carry out.
Always Ready: With the flip of a switch, or the turn of a dial, gas logs and fireplaces provide instant ambiance and in many cases, heat. And, when the fireplace has served its purpose, a switch or dial shuts the logs off.
Less Pollution: Because there is minimal combustion, there is less pollution and the creosote build-up in the chimney is minimal.
Safe: There are no surprising sparks or hot ashes with natural gas logs.
A Variety of Styles: Gas fireplaces are very similar to wood burning fireplaces in that they are vented outside, but they include the gas logs. Offered in a variety of styles and configurations, natural gas logs and fireplaces are ideal for almost any situation. Styles include:
- Fireplace inserts: Prepared units made to fit into an existing fireplace
- Stand-alone gas fireplaces: Free-standing units with doors
- Gas logs: Made to look like wood logs and are installed in an existing fireplace with a chimney. The chimney damper and the glass doors should be open when logs are burning
Remote Switch: Similar to your television set, some natural gas log sets come with a remote that allows you to turn the flame on and off. A few remotes even feature flame adjustment.
Variety of Features: Some gas fireplace and log sets include variable settings, which allows for control of the flame height, and a thermostat, which allows for control of the temperature.
