Fireplaces

Natural gas fireplace equipment uses realistic, natural-looking gas logs and a controllable gas burner to create a fire so realistic you can barely tell it isn't wood. Once your logs are placed in configuration, they need no adjustments and will never burn away. Natural gas logs provide convenience, cleanliness and safety for your home and family.

Benefits of Natural Gas Logs & Fireplaces

One Time Set-up: Gas logs and fireplaces need to be set up only once. This means there are no logs to carry in and no ashes to carry out.

Always Ready: With the flip of a switch, or the turn of a dial, gas logs and fireplaces provide instant ambiance and in many cases, heat. And, when the fireplace has served its purpose, a switch or dial shuts off the logs.

Less Pollution: Because there is minimal combustion, there is less pollution and the creosote build-up in the chimney is minimal.

Safe: There are no surprising sparks or hot ashes with natural gas logs.

A Variety of Styles: Gas fireplaces are very similar to wood-burning fireplaces in that they are vented outside, but they include the gas logs. Offered in a variety of styles and configurations, natural gas logs and fireplaces are ideal for almost any situation. Styles include:

  • Fireplace inserts: Prepared units made to fit into an existing fireplace
  • Stand-alone gas fireplaces: Free-standing units with doors
  • Gas logs: Made to look like wood logs and installed in an existing fireplace with a chimney. The chimney damper and the glass doors should be open when logs are burning

Remote Switch: Similar to your television set, some natural gas log sets come with a remote that allows you to turn the flame on and off. Some remotes even feature flame adjustment.

Variety of Features: Some gas fireplace and log sets include variable settings, which allows for control of the flame height, and a thermostat, which allows for control of the temperature.
