Today’s Gas Logs Really Look Like Logs
Many years ago, gas logs had some serious aesthetic drawbacks — there was no question that you were looking at manufactured logs and a factory-organized flame. Thankfully, that’s changed in a big way. Today’s gas logs are handcrafted and painted by hand, revealing details that realistically mimic bark and knots. Burner systems are far more realistic nowadays, as well – today’s vented gas logs produce large and remarkably natural flames. Log sets also allow you to add a really personal touch to your appliance, choosing from a wide variety of different log styles, from a dark, charred oak to bright white birch or beachy driftwood.
One More Choice: Vented Or Ventless Gas Logs
There are two main types of gas logs on the market: vented and ventless. Vented gas logs, as you might guess, need to vent through a functional chimney. Ventless gas logs, though, don’t need a chimney to vent through. Each type has benefits and drawbacks. For example, ventless logs direct a good amount of heat into the space, though their flames are smaller and don’t look much like those of a true wood fire. Vented gas logs, on the other hand, provide a much more realistic flame, but because heat is lost up the chimney, they aren’t an efficient heat source. If you’re more concerned with aesthetics, vented gas logs will be the best choice for you; if secondary heat is what you really need, a ventless log set probably makes more sense.
