Gas Log vs. Wood Burning Fireplace: Which One To Choose?
Ah, the great debate. Should I choose to get gas logs installed, or keep my wood-burning fireplace? Well, since we install gas logs here, of course we are slightly biased and are going to try and sway you to our side, but in the end, only you can make that decision for you and your household. BUT we really, really, really hope you decide to get some gas logs installed by us.
Here are a few key items to remember when thinking about making the switch:
- Cost. This will be a draw. Purchasing wood or purchasing gas, both need a fuel supply to run. Unless you live on a few wooded acres and have easy access to a steady supply of timber. In that case, go on with your lumberjack self.
- Maintenance. Gas definitely wins here. For wood fireplaces, you have to stack the wood, clean up ashes, and occasionally have it cleaned so soot doesn't build up, creating a very hazardous situation in your chimney. With gas, after the initial installation, you simply need to have your connection and burners checked once a year.
- Ease of use. Gas wins again. For wood fireplaces, you have to "build" the fire. For our gas log fireplaces, it usually only requires flipping a switch, and in some installations, we can program a remote control to operate your gas log fireplace.
- Efficiency. Unfortunately, gas wins again here. You spend all that time building a fire, coaxing the flames from the tinder, only to have the majority of its heat go out the chimney? We don't think so!
