The cold winter months are on their way, but that doesn’t mean you have to stop enjoying your living space. You don’t have to bundle up in a heavy coat, boots and blankets, either. Gas logs help make your living space warm and comfortable for the holidays.
A gas log is one of the cheapest ways to heat any space. Your gas log will tie into your home’s existing gas lines. It’s easy to turn on and off, and there is nearly no cleanup required. A gas log is also very inexpensive; much cheaper than electric fireplaces and other heat sources. Gas logs are also environmentally-friendly and put off very little in the way of emissions, unlike charcoal or other fire sources. And best of all, a gas log provides more heat, radiates heat farther and heats up more quickly than other types of outdoor heat sources, so you can enjoy your outdoor space to the fullest.
Prices for gas logs vary widely, based on several factors. You need to choose a model that is big enough to handle your outdoor space; larger models that emit more heat will obviously increase the price you can expect to pay. You will also pay more depending on the style of gas log you choose; gas logs that look like realistic, rustic wood fireplaces will be more expensive than their less-realistic cousins. In addition, the price varies widely based on fuel source; you can choose from propane models or natural gas models. There are also vented and ventless models to choose from; this distinction will also cause differences in price.
It is possible to install a gas log yourself, but unless you are a professional in this field, it’s not advisable. There are a lot of things that must be taken care of during the installation to ensure that the gas log operates safely. The installation technician will also ensure your home’s gas lines are not compromised during the installation of your gas log. You should also have a professional assist you with choosing the proper gas log for your particular application. Selecting the wrong gas log is not only a waste of money, it can lead to frustration and the inability to enjoy your outdoor space as you wish.
