Whether you use them as a backup heat source or just because you enjoy the experience of having a fire, gas logs are extremely popular. Gas log sets provide the traditional look and comfort associated with a woodburning fire, and can be installed in your existing fireplace. They're reliable, efficient, safe, and there are options to suit any decor, room size, or need. Some models can be controlled with a thermostat, turning on and off automatically to provide heat; most can be remote controlled for convenient operation.
Gas has several advantages over wood- it burns cleaner & provides more heat; and it saves you the time, hassle, hazards, work, and mess associated with a wood burning fireplace.

Vent Free Gas Logs
Vent Free gas logs burn very cleanly- the newer styles are 99% efficient, so they don't create soot. These logs use room air for combustion,giving you more installation options than with Direct Vent sets. Vent Free systems come with a safety sensor that turns the gas off if room oxygen levels fall. While Vent Free logs can provide up to 40,000 BTU of heat, they should be considered a supplemental heat source.
Vented gas logs create the most realistic looking flames, but because they burn less efficiently, they produce less heat and create a lot of soot. Keep in mind that these gas logs require an open damper & regular chimney maintenance. Much of the heat from vented logs escapes up the chimney, so they're a good choice if you don't need to use your gas logs for supplemental heat. The newer vented gas logs offer options such as dancing flames. There are many different styles of logs & burners you can choose from.
Gas logs can burn natural gas, or liquid propane where gas service is not available. Installs are completed by our certified gas fitter for your safety. We recommend that you have annual inspections done by a gas pro to ensure that the units are free from cracks and operating properly.
