Gas Logs & Fireplace
Natural Gas Logs
Natural gas fireplace equipment uses natural-looking gas logs and a controllable gas burner to create a life-like fire. Once natural gas logs are placed in configuration, they need no more adjustments and will never burn away. Natural gas logs provide convenience, cleanliness and safety in a variety of ways.
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.
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.
Because there is minimal combustion, there is less pollution and the creosote build-up in the chimney is minimal.
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 that 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.
- Fireplace Inserts are prepared units made to fit into an existing fireplace.
- Stand-alone gas fireplaces are typically free-standing units with doors.
- Most units produce radiant heat and some have blowers and heat exchangers.
- Gas logs are 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.
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.
A Variety of Features
Features that are offered on gas fireplace and log sets include variable settings, which allows for control of the flame height, and a thermostat, which allow for control of the temperature.
