Efficient, Affordable Heat
Adding a new fireplace to an existing structure is a large task, and it is an expensive one as well. New gas log systems allow for the installation of new fireplaces in a variety of places within your home. They are much easier to install than a traditional fireplace, and they can resemble a variety of materials and styles.
There are two types of fireplaces used with gas logs:
- Freestanding – These fireplaces are lightweight and easy to assemble, and they come in a variety of shapes, sizes, and finishes.
- Built-In: These fireplaces are made to resemble a traditional fireplace both in terms of looks and installation, and both built-in and freestanding fireplaces are vented through a metal chimney which is insulated and run through the walls and ceiling of your home.

A traditional fireplace offers an atmosphere that cannot be replicated, but they do require constant upkeep, they can be messy, and they can pose fire hazards. In addition, finding and chopping firewood can be inconvenient if you don’t live near the woods.
Gas logs address these setbacks, providing a maintenance-free, readily available fire. They are easy to install, and the variety of styles ensures you will have the ideal fireplace for your home’s aesthetic themes. A gas log poses fewer fire dangers, and they provide twice the heat of traditional wood fireplaces.
Vented vs. Vent-Free
A vented gas log will provide you with a larger, realistic-looking flame that closely resembles a traditional fireplace. These gas logs use an open chimney flue, which carries much of the generated heat up the flue, which makes their main appeal decoration rather than efficiency.
A vent-free log will operate with a closed chimney flue, and won’t produce a roaring flame. While this isn’t realistic, a vent-free log will return 100% of the heat generated to your home. These systems also add moisture to the air, which can be beneficial, but must be monitored to ensure mold or mildew doesn’t begin to grow.
There are some limitations as to where a gas log can be installed, so be sure to check your local codes. Gore Heating & Air Conditioning will gladly assess your property and help determine if a gas log fireplace is the ideal solution for you.
