Vented Gas Logs
Will I be able to heat my whole house?
In many instances, our customers are able to do the bulk of their heating with a properly sized stove or fireplace. There are many variables that come in to play when switching to an alternative heat source. The layout of the home and the location of the heating appliance are big factors. When you’re heating with a stove or fireplace, you want to be sure that it is as centrally located as possible since the heat is radiating out from a single source, unlike a central heating system. In many instances, if the layout of the home is conducive to zone heating, our customers are able to do the bulk of their heating with a properly sized stove or fireplace. Please contact one of our sales associates for help in creating the right home heating solution for you.
If i want to convert my wood burning fireplace to gas, is a set of gas logs or a gas insert going to be my best option?
Your decision really comes down to how much a priority heating efficiency is for you. If you want a lot of heat from your fireplace, you should consider a direct vent gas insert. From a cost standpoint, an insert will cost approximately five times the cost of a nice gas log set. However, since the insert is very efficient, it will pay for itself over a period of a few years in gas bill savings. We offer both a full line of inserts and vented gas logs to choose from. Installing room-vented or vent free log sets in our wood-burning fireplaces is unacceptable. Doing so will void your warranty on the fireplace and possibly your homeowners insurance.
Wood and Gas CANNOT be vented out of the same flue or liner. Wood burning liners cannot be used with gas appliances and vice versa. If you want to convert from one fuel to another, the liners must also be changed to conform to code.
