Natural gas logs and fireplaces provide great benefits and add real value as well as comfort to your home. Gas logs burn cleanly with no messy ashes or wood chips to deal with. Designed to be installed in your existing masonry or wood-burning fireplace, gas logs come in a multitude of styles and flame patterns to suit any taste. Vented gas logs are designed to provide beauty and enhanced realism. Vent-free gas logs are equipped with an oxygen depletion sensor (ODS) to ensure your safety while providing ultimate efficiency.
Natural gas fireplaces can be installed in nearly any room of your home. Vent-free models can be installed on inside walls because they require no chimney or outside venting. Direct-vent fireplaces can be installed in almost any room and draw combustion air from the outside, adding to their energy-efficiency. As an added benefit, most gas logs and fireplaces do not require electricity to operate so they can provide ample back-up heat in emergency power outage situations.
Gas logs and fireplaces represent one of the best investments you can make in remodeling or building a new home. The addition to the appraised value of a home resulting from a gas fireplace generally exceeds the cost of the fireplace, including installation.
