We’ve put together some common questions about gas fireplaces and gas logs so you have a better understanding.
In many cases, a propane gas fireplace and gas logs can be installed in as little as one day! Masonry wood-burning fireplaces, on the other hand, can takes weeks to install and that part of your home will be a dusty mess while it’s happening.
There are vent-free and direct-vent gas fireplaces.
Direct-vent fireplaces off an attractive, realistic flame. That makes them popular with homeowners. However, this aesthetic comes at the cost of decreased efficiency as much of their generated heat is lost through the chimney or flue.
Vent-free fireplaces give you greater heating efficiency. The flip side is that the flames aren’t as large or realistic as direct-vent fireplaces.
Also, because the exhaust is vented into the home and not outdoors, vent-free fireplaces and gas logs are not permitted to be installed in bedrooms or enclosed areas like bathrooms.
Some municipalities prohibit the installation of any vent-free fireplace or gas logs, so you must check your local regulations prior to buying your gas logs or fireplace.
Which type of fireplace you choose dictates what kind of gas logs you get, as they are different for direct-vent and ventless fireplaces.
A gas log is composed of piping and a set of logs. The logs are made of refractory ceramic, ceramic fiber, or refractory cement. They come in sizes to fit all kinds of fireplaces, and styles that mimic real wood and range from traditional to rustic to coastal.
Gas logs offer superior heating to electric fireplaces. In fact, they can generate up to three times the heat of a comparable electric fireplace. They also can be customized to make your fireplace look like a wood-burning fireplace and create a cozy atmosphere.
A gas fireplace is a freestanding propane appliance and can be installed virtually anywhere in your home. Add one to a family room to create a perfect gathering space, or to the main bedroom for romantic ambiance.
A gas insert is, as its name implies, inserted into an existing masonry fireplace. It allows you to enjoy the comfort and convenience of a gas fireplace along with outstanding efficiency. Gas inserts are a sealed system and use your existing chimney for direct venting.
This is absolutely not recommended. You need to obtain an installation permit to install gas logs in your home, and there will be a required inspection by your municipality after installation is complete. Also, you are working with gas in your home and that work is best left to a professional who is trained and experienced to keep your home and loved ones safe.
