Gas log fireplaces have been growing in popularity in recent years. In fact, almost 70% of the new fireplaces being installed in today’s homes use either propane or natural gas, not wood, for fuel. That doesn’t mean they can’t still offer all of the same benefits as traditional wood fires.
Readers who have never seen the Gas Logs Kennesaw homeowners can now use as an alternative to wood fires don’t know what they’re missing. They can, however, read on to find out about just a few of the benefits of this thoroughly modern solution.
Wood fires are beautiful but can be dangerous. Gas log fires are nearly indistinguishable from wood fires visually but they don’t create sparks or creosote buildup, making them much safer. Plus, the logs are fixed in place, so there’s no possibility of logs rolling out of the fireplace to cause additional trouble.
Ease of Use
With Gas Logs Atlanta, residents don’t need to head out into the winter cold to cut, stack, or retrieve firewood. All they have to do when they decide they want a fire is turn on their gas log fireplaces, sit back, and enjoy. Gas log fireplaces are also easier to maintain since they don’t produce creosote and don’t require cleaning as frequently.
Burning wood releases airborne particulates into the surrounding environment, adding a further burden to the already severely overworked atmosphere. The problem has gotten so bad that the EPA has had to place regulations on particulate emissions of wood stoves and, in some places, have even passed winter burning bans that prevent homeowners from using their wood fireplaces entirely. Gas log fireplaces, on the other hand, burn cleaner fuel that does less ecological damage and is not prohibited during burning bans.
Same Traditional Beauty
Since gas log fireplaces are designed to look just like wood logs, they offer the same traditional beauty and simplicity to just about any room. Readers who haven’t seen recently fabricated gas logs should note that the industry has come a long way in the past decade. Today’s gas logs are much more detailed and come in a wide variety of styles, which means they look much more realistic.
