Add Convenience & Efficiency With Gas Logs!

The busy lifestyles many of us have today can make enjoying a wood-burning fireplace and the time and work they require a little more difficult. For this reason, gas logs have become more and more popular in recent years.

There are some marked benefits to using gas logs in your fireplace. For starters, there’s the convenience — in most cases, you’ll have a fire going with just the click of a button, and certain models have a remote control for even more convenient use. Gas logs are also comparably clean, since you won’t be carting and stacking wood or cleaning up ash.

Blue Sky Chimney Sweeps’ technicians have installed gas logs into existing fireplaces all over the upstate area, and we’ve found that our customers really love being able to use their fireplace without the time, effort, and cleanup required with a wood-burning appliance.

Different Types Of Gas Logs

Gas logs are designed to burn either propane or natural gas, and you’ll mainly see two types of gas logs on the market: vented and vent-less. The main difference is that vented gas logs are meant to be used in a fireplace that has a fully-functioning chimney, so that gases can be carried out of the home, as they would be with a wood-burning unit. Vent-less gas logs are designed so that they don’t need to be hooked up to a venting system or chimney.

Each type has benefits: If your chimney is not suitable for proper ventilation, vent-less gas logs can still allow you to enjoy the warmth and convenience of a gas fire. Vent-less units also direct more heat into the room, since heat isn’t escaping up the flue. Vented gas logs, however, often look more realistic, with a wider and fuller flame.

Gas Logs Are Impressively Realistic

Today’s gas logs are constructed out of a refractory cement or ceramic material and are designed to mimic the look of real wood, from realistic bark to imperfections that look like hand-split timber. You’ll be impressed with how well your gas logs match the cozy look of a real wood fire (particularly if you opt for a vented log set) — only you won’t have to haul in wood and build the fire every time you want to use the fireplace.

Like All Heating Appliances, Gas Logs Require Regular Maintenance

In order to avoid damage and keep your heating appliances working efficiently, regular maintenance is a must. We recommend having your gas logs annually inspected and serviced to ensure that everything is functioning properly. We also recommend having a carbon monoxide detector installed nearby, particularly if your log set is vent-less.
