If you have an existing fireplace but seldom use it, a set of gas logs may be the best way to have dancing flames at your fingertips.

Gas Logs and Doors

Gas logs can transform an existing wood burning fireplace for realistic, room-enhancing fire and they don't require any change in the appearance or structure of your fireplace. Instead, gas logs deliver fire with the flip of a switch, at any time, any day of the year. If you have an existing fireplace but seldom use it, a gas log set may be the best way to have dancing flames at your fingertips.

Gas logs provide dramatic realism, from the lifelike ceramic fiber, concrete, glass, or refractory logs down to the glowing embers. A log set has a burner that uses either natural gas or propane. Propane and natural gas fireplace sets are an affordable way to revamp your existing fireplace and change the look and feel of your room.

Vented units have a spectacular flame pattern, but are decorative only. Vent-free models offer high efficiency, even more so when used along with fireplace doors.

Where to Shop

Your local specialty retailer can help you find the gas log set best for you, whether it's a small split pine campfire or massive oak logs. The Woodstove Fireplace & Patio Shop is also familiar with the ins and outs of installing a log set in your area.
