Installing Gas Logs in Your Charlotte Home
Gas logs are a great way to upgrade your existing wood-burning or masonry fireplace. They burn clean, and you won’t have to deal with ash and messy wood chips. There are a wide range of flame patterns and styles to choose from, and we’re ready to walk you through all of your options to ensure you have fireplace logs installed that you’ll love for many years to come. Before moving forward with the project, there are some things to consider.
Types of Gas Logs
There are two types of gas logs to consider. Both have their own advantages and disadvantages, so it’s important to know your options.
Vented gas logs
The first type to consider is vented gas logs. These require installation into a fully functional wood-burning fireplace, and you’ll need to have your damper opened while burning these. Vented gas logs create a small amount of exhaust similar to a real wood burn. The benefits of vented gas logs is that they look much more realistic, and produce a vivid, attractive yellow flame. If you want the most realistic-looking fireplace logs, vented is going to your best bet.
Vent-free gas logs
If you’re more concerned with functionality, ventless or “vent free” gas logs are a better option. Ventless gas logs produce more heat, and use less gas than vented logs. They burn much more cleanly, and have virtually no exhaust as a byproduct. This means you can burn them with your damper mostly closed, and keep the heat indoors.
Benefits of gas logs include:
- No ash or wood chips
- Realistic flames
- Cleaner heat
- Less mess
Will My Fireplace Work for Gas Logs?
It’s important to note that gas logs cannot be installed in every make and model of fireplace. While it may seem contradictory, gas logs are not safe to be installed in most gas fireplaces. You’ll need to have either a wood-burning or masonry fireplace. The reason for this is that gas fireplaces are not typically designed for accommodate the burning of gas logs, and would make for a dangerous situation. If you aren’t sure what type of fireplace you own, there may be a metal label somewhere with the make and model number inside your fireplace, usually near the opening. A quick internet search should help you determine what type of fireplace you own.
