Whether you have a new home that you are in the process of building or are in the process of converting a wood-burning fireplace into one that works with gas logs, our team here at Swept Away Chimney would like to help you. Choosing the right gas logs for your needs can be very beneficial, and we have a few tips that can ensure you choose the right gas logs to meet your needs.
- Talk with the experts. While the majority of gas logs are designed to work either in a new fireplace or convert a wood-burning fireplace into a gas fireplace, the fireplace, stonework and other masonry should be examined by experts beforehand. This will ensure that everything is safe and compatible before you start running gas lines or spending your money.
- Think about the look you want for your gas logs. There are so many different types of gas logs out there that it is easy to choose a variety of different choices! You can choose from gas logs from different species of woods, have different flame patterns, and different sizes. Think about the overall look you would like and measure carefully!
- Don’t assume all gas logs are the same. Different fireplaces have different shapes, and the gas logs you choose should reflect the shape of your fireplace. When choosing your gas logs, think about whether you have a peninsula-style fireplace where you can see three sides of the logs, a double-sided fireplace where two sides front and back are visible or a standard fireplace where just one side is visible and choose accordingly.
