Why You Should Add Gas Logs to Your Fireplace


Fireplaces have always been statement pieces for homeowners; they can immediately increase your home’s value. Therefore it shouldn’t come as a surprise when fireplaces became one of the most sought-after features in homes. They rank just second behind outdoor patios, decks, and porches, according to the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB).

However, if you own a wood-burning fireplace, as beautiful as they are, they come with a lot of hassle and maintenance. This is why many fireplace fanatics are switching to gas log-burning fireplaces. Switching to gas logs in your fireplace can be a great way to create a cozy and inviting atmosphere in your home. Not just that, gas logs are efficient and easy to install, making them the perfect choice for anyone looking for an alternate heating source or simply wanting to update their existing gas fireplaces.

Here are some of the top reasons why you should add gas logs to your fireplace:

Aesthetic

Gas logs have come a long way since they were first introduced. Don’t get us wrong; some fireplaces can still have that artificial look. However, at Gore Heating & AC, we aren’t called the leading gas log installation company in Fayetteville, NC, for nothing; we have some of the most realistic and rustic-looking gas-powered fireplaces on the market.

Gas logs instantly add aesthetic appeal to your fireplace. Whether you want the look of a cozy campfire or something more extravagant, like a crackling blaze with glowing embers, gas logs can give you the aesthetic you’re hoping for. In addition, the various styles available allow you the flexibility to customize the look of your fireplace and make it unique.

Safety

Another reason you should consider adding gas logs to your fireplace is safety. When you think about it, wood-burning fireplaces come with a book of safety risks, and many people with kids or pets even stop using their fireplaces altogether because of the risks. A gas log fireplace sends embers up through the ceramic logs and can create a natural-looking fire. Making the switch eliminates the risk of sparks or popping embers — as such, incorporating gas logs into your fireplace can be an excellent decision for fire safety and convenience. Propane or natural gas logs are easy to install and require minimal maintenance once they’re set up. Our technicians are some of the most experienced propane gas line installers in Fayetteville, NC.

Easy to Use

Gas logs have been around since the turn of the century and are an efficient way to enjoy a fire in your home without maintaining a firewood stockpile. As one knows, making a fire from scratch is doable, but it’s not easy, and for some, even getting the materials is a struggle. Starting a gas fireplace is as easy as flipping a switch, and some fireplaces even allow you to choose the perfect temperature. Additionally, natural gas log fireplaces are easy to maintain and require little to no cleanup. Remember, even though these fireplaces are simplistic, you will still need to get your fireplaces checked annually to ensure everything is working correctly.

Environmentally Friendly

Another benefit to remember when figuring out if a gas fireplace is for you is how it impacts the environment. Gas logs are environmentally friendly since natural gasses don’t produce any smoke or soot. Modern gas appliances are made to burn very cleanly, which means less creosote that can corrode chimney walls and lead to a fire and less carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. Natural wood burning creates more carbon dioxide than gas, coal, and oil. If you’re looking to incorporate more eco-friendly options into your home, then gas log fireplaces are definitely for you.

Vented vs. Non-Vented

Adding a gas log to your fireplace is the perfect way to get all the comfort of a fire without hassle or mess. Whether you choose vented or ventless gas logs, they are versatile and can be used safely and efficiently in almost any fireplace. Vented versus ventless gas logs differ in cost, efficiency, and venting requirements.

Vented gas logs must be used with an open chimney and vent to the outside of your home. They use natural gas or propane, produce more realistic flames, and are usually more expensive than ventless gas logs.

On the other hand, ventless gas logs can be used without a vent or chimney. They can be used with natural gas or propane, produce less realistic flames, and are more affordable than vented logs — just another reason why you should add gas logs to your fireplace.

My heat pump went out Sunday Night during this current heat wave. Monday morning, I called Gore Heating and Air and told them my problem. They told me that they would send someone out that afternoon. The Owner, Nicholas Gore came out after 5 PM. Gore Heating and Air had installed my current heat pump 22 yrs ago. Nicholas was honest and told me that he could fix it, but couldn't guarantee how long it would last because it is 22 yrs old. I am going to have a new heat pump installed on Friday. Gore Heating and Air has great customer service and is honest and dependable. Thank you Nicholas for the great service.Update: This morning l, Sean & Jalil came out and installed our new heat pump. They were very professional and did an excellent job. Now our whole house is cool again. For the past week, we had been surviving on 2 window units. Thank you Sean & Jalil for the Great Job!!! Thank you Gore Heating & Air for the excellent service. I have been a long time customer of theirs for many years and will highly recommend them to anybody.

Nicholas was very professional & well spoken young man. He explained how the coils are leaking & what the options are to fix it. He explained that he added 3 lbs of coolant to help it work better, while we wait for new coils. We decided to replace the coil system. We appreciate Nicholas & Gore Heating & Air Conditioning. They responded very quickly to our AC issue.We highly recommend Nichlolas & Gore.

Josh from Gore Heating & Air did a preventive maintenance check on my HVAC units. He found (and fixed) a minor problem that could have become much bigger if the fix was not done. He was also pleasant and friendly, and he explained everything he was doing. He was even nice to my very excitable Jack Russell terrier!
