CLEAN, CONVENIENT AND COMFORTABLE
A gas log set consists of a gas burner covered in “firewood” made from fire-proof molded refractory cement or molded ceramic fibers. Gas logs, whether vented or vent-free, are a terrific way to enjoy a gas fire in an existing wood burning fireplace and are a good choice for a fire with little mess or environmental impact. The addition of a gas log set can reduce the amount of work associated with building a fire. But, the best feature of gas logs is the convenience of enjoying the fire. In addition to easy ignition options, there are many ways to control the flame height and the look of the fire as well as the available warmth, whether manually or by remote control.
MINIMAL INSTALLATION REQUIREMENTS
Vented and vent-free gas logs can be professionally installed in most masonry or factory-built wood burning fireplaces as long as the fireplace and chimney are in good shape, and natural gas or propane gas is available.
THE IDENTICAL TWIN TO WOOD
One of the biggest choices when selecting a gas log set is deciding on the style of firewood. The logs are designed to mimic actual wood and are available in many varieties. When creating log sets, manufacturers use actual stacked firewood to form a mold. The cast logs are then detailed, often by hand, with authentic colors and bark textures, including knotholes, forked branches and ax marks. To finish the look, manufacturers engineer burner systems to perfectly replicate the dancing flames of a fire complete with a bed of glowing coals and embers.
