At PlumbersStock, you can buy both liquid propane and natural gas fireplace log sets. In order to use these logs, it is required to have an existing wood burning fireplace with a decent chimney system. Gas Logs are available in two basic types: Vented or Unvented (often referred to as “Vent Free” gas logs). Save on artificial gas log sets by Majestic.
These gas logs obviously must be vented when burned otherwise you are exposing yourself to dangerous exhaust. Ideally, you will have a traditional chimney for venting out the smoke. The advantage to a vented gas log is that it puts off more yellow flame than the vent-free counterpart, which provides a more natural and aesthetically pleasing look to your fireplace. The major disadvantage is that a lot of the heat will escape out of the chimney. It is not the most efficient form of home heating. In summary:
The beauty of vent-free logs is that they can be placed anywhere in the home without much infrastructure or preparation. They burn about as clean as your gas stove-top in the kitchen. With concerns about carbon monoxide, you are probably wondering how this works. Because vent-free gas logs achieve almost complete combustion, the levels of CO emitted are mitigated to near zero. Most ventless natural gas log sets come with a sensor that measures oxygen depletion. It is designed to automatically shut off the gas when it determines that CO levels are beginning to reach threatening levels. In summary:
As with any gas system, always refer to the installation manual and local building codes.
PlumbersStock offers natural gas log sets in a range of sizes to suit particular requirements. Gas logs come in two main varieties, which include ceramic and refractory. Both are compatible with the same burner applications and offer the same output.
If you are only looking for gas logs for the look and occasional use, then refractory logs are the way to go. If you want something more realistic that will be used more often, then ceramic logs are your best choice. Different arrangements of log stacks are also available on PlumbersStock, such as Massive Oak, Split Pine, Weathered Pine, and Split River Oak.
