The Convenience of Gas Logs

By | Tagged with: Tags: , , | Comments Off on The Convenience of Gas Logs

Whether you’re looking for a little ambiance, some extra warmth, or even making due with a worn out chimney, gas logs can add to your home in more ways than one! In fact, gas logs are growing in popularity among home and business owners. What’s the big deal? Once you find out all these products have to offer, you won’t choose anything different!

Easy Install

Depending on what type of log set you choose, you may not even need a vent/chimney. Many gas log sets are safe for indoor use without a vent. These are also perfect for bypassing chimneys in disrepair atogether. This is why it’s important to involve a professional from the beginning when you’re making a change or planning a new install. Only a professional can definitively assess the situation, measure, order, and install the right unit for you. Showrooms across the country are filled with returns that homeowners have ordered online that were inappropriate for their home, their fuel type, or didn’t fit in their space. When you choose to work with Magic Sweep, you can rest assured that the installation will be without hassle and headache.

Easy to Use

Gas logs are easy to use when you follow directions. Most light by a switch or may require the use of a match. Through the winter there may be a pilot light burning, and this can be shut off during the offseason. Gas fires are easily controlled with a remote control. When you’re ready to shut the fire down for the night, it just requires the flip of a switch of the turn of a knob. This creates freedom that doesn’t exist with a wood-burning fireplace. A gas fire can ignite and extinguish instantly, cool off quicker, and result in less accidental burns. These products are also easy to maintain. All you have to do is dust around the fireplace on a regular basis, remove debris from the area, clean the burners (logs), and check connections.

Minimal Maintenance

Despite the convenience of gas logs, they still require routine professional maintenance in order to stay efficient and safe. Homeowners should have a professional come into service gas fire appliances at least annually in which the flue and unit are cleaned, connections are checked, glass is checked, and the unit is tested. These annual appointments can prevent serious damage and injury caused by neglect.
