Read more to learn what you need to know about getting gas logs set up in your fireplace.
The Two Types of Gas Logs
When you’re looking to purchase gas logs, there are two options you can choose from. So how do you choose which one is right for you? Vented gas logs require your chimney flue to be open while they’re on and operating. Vented logs are the right choice for you if you’re wanting a natural look. They appear the most like a natural wood fire.
Vent-free logs don’t require your chimney flue to be open while they’re operating. They also don’t appear as natural as those that are vented. However, these provide the most heat. If you definitely want your gas logs to be your primary heat source, not just an aesthetic feature, vent-free logs are probably the better option for your home.

Their logs are made of high-quality ceramics to ensure that they’re going to be durable and last a long time.

Gas Log Installation
Whether you’ve got your log kit from a hardware store or from our site, Advanced Chimney Sweeps offers installation services. These kits are able to be installed in most existing or new fireplaces in your home. There are a few things you can do to help the installation go smoothly when we come to assist.
First, make sure both your chimney and firebox are clean. We can also perform our chimney sweeping service before installing your gas logs to ensure it’s free of creosote buildup and other debris. Make sure the area around your fireplace is free of clutter. Our installers will need a bit of room to work, so move furniture and other items that are close to the fireplace.
