Do you long for the warm, cozy feeling a fireplace brings to a home, but wish to avoid the hassle of hauling wood, coaxing a flame, and shoveling ashes? Do you have a fireplace but not a working chimney? Are you worried that a wood fire could be a danger to young children? Gas logs are the solution to these and other common problems with fireplaces. Gas fireplace inserts can accommodate nearly any type of fireplace, including vented and vent-less options. Natural gas or propane can be used to fuel the flames, making it possible to start a roaring fire at the flip of a switch or the push of a button.
Gas logs are a safe way to add warmth and ambiance to your home
A fireplace is often the focal point of a room. People gather around fires for the warmth and the beauty that it offers. A fire draws people in, including curious young children. Gas log inserts can be installed with safety features such as doors that do not get hot to the touch and safety pilot lights that are easily lit by adults. There is never a concern that sparks or embers will escape or that logs will roll out. Chimney fires are not a concern with gas logs, as there are no coals or ashes to blow up the chimney. No chimney sweeping is necessary. Your home and your family can warm up safely by a gas log fireplace.
Health and Allergies improve with gas fireplace inserts
If you or anyone in your household suffers from allergies or any other respiratory illness, gas logs are a much healthier option than burning wood. Gas logs burn clean, especially the vent-less variety. Vent-less gas logs do not require a chimney or any other type of ventilation, as they burn clean and emit very little or no exhaust. Vent-less gas logs produce significant warmth that can help take the edge off the cold on a winter day. Vented gas logs require a chimney or other ventilation avenue, and are often installed in fireplaces that are capable of being used for burning wood. Vented logs do produce some exhaust that has to be vented outside of the home through the existing chimney or flue. Vented logs use a bit more gas than vent-less, but both are still more economical than a wood burning fireplace when used on a regular basis during the cold season. Wood burning fireplaces produce smoke, soot, and carbon monoxide that are released into the air inside your home. This affects the indoor air quality in the home, which can irritate allergies, asthma, and other respiratory illnesses. It is always wise to have a carbon monoxide detector installed in your home, regardless of the type of fireplace you choose.
