GAS FIREPLACE LOG

outdoor fire pit gas logs. A fireplace insert gas log can give you the look of an authentic wood-burning fire—without the mess. A ventless fireplace gas log is an ideal solution for any homeowner who wants the coziness of a roaring fire, but does not want to have to deal with hauling wood for clearing up ashes.

A gas log for an artificial fireplace can give you hours of high-quality fires. As you learn more about gas logs, you’ll find that certain brands top the list—and among those is the Peterson gas fireplace log.



Fast Facts
When it comes to gas logs, there are some fast facts you should consider. For instance, gas log fixtures are often vented so that dangerous gases can travel outside-just as they would if you used a chimney with a traditional wood burning fireplace. Even if you don't have a usable chimney, you can still use vented gas logs because there's more than one method for venting an appliance.



Words of Caution
A traditional hearth and chimney can easily use vented gas logs. You can select models that burn either natural or propane gas. Still, both types must be burned with the damper open.

You also need to understand that gas fireplaces do not solve the problem of a malfunctioning chimney. In fact, if a chimney is damaged, unclean, or does not draw air well, it is inappropriate for gas logs. In addition, if your chimney has burned wood in the past, it’s important to have it professionally cleaned before gas logs are used in order to prevent additional problems from cropping up.



Venting Strategies
ventless fireplace gas log.If you lack a chimney for top-venting, you should know that you can install a special pipe to vent the fireplace. In fact, you should ask an expert about possible options for a top-venting pipe. Nevertheless, in some cases, a top-venting pipe may not be appropriate. If that’s the case, consider direct venting. With direct venting, you’ll be using a two-layer pipe running through a hole in the wall in back of the fireplace. In this situation, the outer pipe draws air in from outside in order to create the combustion for burning the gas. The inner pipe then takes waste to the outside.
