Why People Love Gas Logs

Gas fireplaces have outpaced traditional wood-burning fireplaces as a home amenity. In fact, many homeowners are augmenting their hearths, and their homes, with gas logs. Here’s why so many people are loving gas logs.


Gas logs have become a convenient alternative to traditional wood fires. With gas logs, you press a button or flip a switch, and you are instantly enjoying a roaring fire. Some gas logs can even be programmed to help maintain a certain temperature within a home. Gas logs create a warm, glowing hearth without the work required to build and maintain a wood fire.


Gas log technology has come a long way. The newest generation of gas logs have an incredibly realistic look, making them difficult to distinguish from a wood-burning fire. Ceramic gas logs are cast with axe marks, forks, and knot holes. They also come in several different varieties of wood, so you can get the exact look you desire.

Ease of Installation

Gas logs can quickly upgrade any hearth. One reason gas logs have become a popular option for homeowners is because they are so easy to install. Nearly any existing hearth space or room can be outfitted with a set of gas logs; all it takes is a working gas line and, potentially, a chimney.


Gas logs are an incredibly versatile hearth appliance. Of course, they can be retrofitted into nearly any existing hearth space. But gas logs also can be fitted into nearly any room in your home. Gas logs require little space, so they can be build into nearly any room. Gas logs also come in vented or vent-free varieties. That means you can install a fireplace in nearly any room in your home, even rooms that can’t be equipped with chimneys or that allow for little clearance.


As far as fireplaces go, gas fireplaces, including gas logs, are as efficient as you can get. All gas logs create little to no particulate matter, which means gas logs won’t pollute the air in your home or your neighborhood. They also burn little fuel, which make them a cheap and efficient heating option.


Gas logs are also affordable! Fireplaces are a desirable addition to any home, but installing a brand-new fireplace, complete with a hearth and a chimney, can be costly. Gas logs provide a cost-effective way to upgrade your existing hearth or install a new fireplace in your home.

If you are ready to upgrade your home with gas logs — whether it’s overhauling an existing fireplace or installing a new fireplace — stop by one of FireSide Hearth & Home’s four showrooms. You will be able to see the different types of gas logs available and talk to one of our hearth experts about having gas logs installed in your home.
