Choosing Your Gas Logs

Gas Logs Add Ambiance in Cool Texas Weather

While the weather may not dip into the teens very often here in Boerne, TX, we do have long winter days that have a chill to the air.  Gas logs make it easy to enjoy a fire, even for just a short time, on these chilly days.  And gas logs will enhance the aesthetics of your fireplace giving you the warm, cozy house you’re desiring.

When you choose the fire logs you want to install, you’ll want to consider the pros and cons of different styles and materials of gas logs.

 

Ceramic Logs:

Pros:

Realistic Appearance: Ceramic logs are designed to mimic the look of natural wood, providing a traditional and authentic fireplace experience.

Durable: They can withstand high temperatures, ensuring long-term durability.

Cons:

Limited Variation: While they offer a realistic appearance, the design options may be somewhat limited compared to other materials.

 

Fiber-Reinforced Logs:

Pros:

Realistic Look: Similar to ceramic logs, fiber-reinforced logs provide a realistic appearance that closely resembles natural wood.

Durability: These logs are reinforced with fibers, making them sturdy and heat-resistant.

Cons:

Cost: Fiber-reinforced logs may be slightly more expensive than other options.

 

Vented Gas Logs:

Pros:

Realistic Flames: Vented logs produce a more realistic flame pattern, resembling the movement and appearance of a traditional wood-burning fire.

Variety: There is a wide variety of styles and sizes available to suit different fireplace designs.

Cons:

Heat Loss: Vented gas logs are less efficient as they release heat through the chimney, making them more decorative than a primary heat source.

 

Ventless (Vent-Free) Gas Logs:

Pros:

Efficient Heating: Ventless logs provide more heat output as all the generated heat stays within the room.

Flexibility: Because they don’t require a chimney, ventless logs can be installed in a variety of locations.

Cons:

Combustion Byproducts: Ventless systems release water vapor and small amounts of combustion byproducts into the room, which may be a concern for some homeowners.

Oxygen Depletion Sensor: Some people may find the safety feature of an oxygen depletion sensor (ODS) to be a potential downside, as it automatically shuts off the system if oxygen levels drop.

 

Charred Logs:

Pros:

Unique Appearance: Charred logs have a distinctive appearance with darkened and burnt areas, offering a unique and rustic charm.

Cons:

Limited Realism: While visually interesting, charred logs may not provide the same level of realism as some other styles.

 

Installation:

A local fireplace supply store in San Antonio can help you decide on the best fit for your home based on your goals.  Whether you’re looking for ambiance or an efficient heating method, there will be a good fit for you. 

Once you’ve selected the logs of your choice, we’ll install the gas lines and the logs for you.  Call us to schedule.  830-446-5227

Gas lines for your fireplace can also eliminate the  struggle to get your fire going.  Even if you prefer burning wood in your in your fireplace rather than using gas logs, a gas starter can make getting your fire going a breeze.  You’ll simply turn on the gas, ignite it, and let it do the hard part of getting your wood burning. 

 

A gas fire starter eliminates the need for small scrappy pieces of wood, rolled up paper, or other methods of starting the fire. 

 

With the installation of a gas line to your fireplace and a starter attachment, you’ll never struggle with getting damp wood to burn.  And your fireplace will stay cleaner without the debris that falls from small pieces of starter wood.

 

Our gas plumbers can install a natural gas or propane line to the fireplace in your Boerne, TX home and install the ignition systems.
