How Do I Choose the Right Gas Logs for My Fireplace?
One of the cool things about gas logs is that they do not actually burn, which means you get authentic looking logs that are long-lasting and high-quality. Unlike traditional logs, which burn and are reduced to ash, you can invest in pieces that may only need occasional repairs. But how exactly do you choose which gas logs to get for your gas fireplace? Here, we will dive into some of the key questions to ask yourself to help you narrow down your choice of logs.
What type of gas fireplace do you have?
Over one-third of homes in the United States have at least one fireplace. There are different gas logs available for different types of gas fireplaces. You do not want to invest in vent free logs if you do not have a vent free fireplace. What exactly is the difference between ventless logs and vented gas logs? While they may look the same at first glance, these gas logs are designed differently.
Vented gas logs, for instance, are meant solely for decoration and they can be repositioned how you like to make them appear more realistic. The flame of the fireplace can actually touch the logs, too, which gives them an even more realistic appearance. Ventless gas logs, on the other hand, release both moisture and heat into the room. They are also designed to stay in one single position for your safety. The Flame Company offers both types of gas logs for your convenience and also provides fireplace log repairs to keep your logs in great shape.
How do you want your fireplace to look?
Now that you know whether to look for ventless or vented gas logs, you can start to get a feel for what aesthetic you’re going for with your fireplace. If you prefer a more realistic look, you can opt for gas logs that appear more rustic with logs piled on top of one another. You can also choose gas logs that have been more artistically placed for an Instagram worthy fireplace look. If you prefer a more contemporary style, there are also gas logs that do not necessarily look realistic, but offer plenty of style.
