Do you love the idea of owning a fireplace, but are concerned about all the extra work that goes along with it? Chopping and stacking wood, building a fire, and waiting around for the fire to die before you leave it can be tiresome and time-consuming. This, coupled with all the maintenance that goes into keeping a traditional fireplace operational, may have some homeowners wary about installing a new fireplace. However, we here at Hale’s Chimney & Fireplace Solutions, offer a large variety of gas log fireplace appliances. Gas log sets are a wonderful solution for those who want the ambiance of a real wood burning fireplace, but an appliance that is also easy to operate and maintain.
What is a gas log?
A gas log set is a gas burner that is inserted into your fireplace firebox, converting it into a gas fireplace. To give the appearance of a wood burning fireplace, a gas burner is placed within a realistic looking, ceramic, fire resistant set of logs. When the gas is turned on and the fire is lit, the effect is an extremely realistic looking wood fire. Gas log sets do require similar ventilation as a wood fireplace, even though they are fueled with gas. However, since you aren’t actually burning wood, you save a lot of time and effort that is usually associated with owning an old-fashioned, wood-burning fireplace. It should also be noted that, similarly to a wood burning fireplace, although the beautiful dancing flames that a gas log set creates are valued for their aesthetics, they don’t produce as much heat as a stove or fireplace insert.
Who can install a gas log set?
It is very important that you have your gas log set installed by a professional fireplace technician who has been certified by the Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA). This is because installing a gas log set can be a difficult task with some hazards associated with it. If a mistake is made while installing your gas log set, you can accidentally expose your home to toxic carbon monoxide, putting your family at risk of getting sick or even dying. At Hale’s Chimney & Fireplace Solutions, we take safety seriously. That’s why all of our installation experts are required to be CSIA certified, so you can be sure that when your gas log set is installed, it will be done with your safety in mind.
