Vented Gas Logs or Vent-Free Gas Logs

Gas logs combine luxury and efficiency with distinctive design elements.

Vented units often have the ability to produce a dramatic flame, but these are used exclusively for decorative purposes.  Since the damper to the fireplace needs to be open, there is very little heat delivered to the room.

On the other hand, vent-free burners are designed with no outside venting requirements. This prevents heat loss and cold air drafts. Vent-free gas logs offer better efficiencies than a vented log because no heat is lost up the chimney. Unfortunately, vent free gas logs cannot be installed in many homes because of code restrictions.

Gas Log Sets Are Incredibly Realistic

An important decision when choosing the best log set for your home is the look of the firewood. Gas log sets are created using fabricated logs made to look identical to different varieties of natural wood. They are actually molded using real logs so they are incredibly realistic.

You can pick between oak, birch, oak, and walnut or even pick an unconventional look. Much care is taken to preserve the natural appearance. The faux logs are painted, often by hand, and even the ax marks, knotholes, and branch forks are integrated into the design. To complete the look, a burner system is installed around the logs to match realistic flame patterns and a bed of coals adds to the realistic picture.

All you need to convert your fireplace is a source of propane or natural gas and a fireplace with a working chimney. The gas log set can be professionally installed once sizing considerations are taken into account.

The gas log sets are made up of realistic looking fabricated logs. Depending on the type and manufacturer, the logs may be made from fireproof ceramic fiber, refractory logs or concrete.

The gas fire produces a clean fire that preserves the indoor air quality and conveniently starts in seconds. Without the constant maintenance of adding to and rekindling the fire, your only job is to enjoy it! The fire can be started with the click of a remote or flip of a switch!
