Gas Fireplace Logs – A Great Alternative to the Real Thing

January 10th, 2008 by Brad Crooks

Another town in California just passed a law prohibiting wood-burning fireplaces in all new construction due to concerns Shop Now - Gas Fireplace Logs over smoke.  We live in Colorado, and we too are restricted to a gas fireplace because of pollution concerns.  It has to do with air inversions caused by the mountains, and a bunch of other technical Ventless Fireplace Gas Logs From HomeOfDecor.com stuff that’s way over my head.  But even though our fireplace has gas fireplace logs, I still enjoy sitting in front of the fire just as much!

One thing that really helps is having realistic logs in the fireplace.  Vented gas logs (for fireplaces that have a damper and could burn real wood) look more realistic than ventless gas logs (no damper), but seriously, I have no complaints along either line.  The manufacturers have worked very hard to make sure that their fireplace gas logs look as great as they work.

Our fireplace is ventless, which means it’s very efficient in producing heat too.  Basically it’s a furnace with a window!  But the flames still dance between the logs, and the embers glow from the heat, just like any wood fire.  In fact our Siberian Husky loves to just stare at the flames, watching the flicker and loving the warmth.

So even if your town decides that you can’t have a wood burning fireplace anymore, don’t despair!  There are plenty of great choices in gas fireplace logs that will give you all the joys of a fire and still keep the city county happy.
