What Is a Propane Gas Log Set?

Everyone loves sitting in front of a fire on a cold New England night – but most of us don’t love buying or chopping wood, getting the fire started, and cleaning up the ashes later.

If you count yourself among the latter group and have an existing fireplace, consider installing a propane gas log set.

Propane log sets offer the ultimate in one-click convenience while providing real flames and realistic detailing that set the perfect cozy tone for your winter family gatherings.

In this first of a two-part post, we’ll talk about the benefits of a propane log set for your Connecticut home; in Part 2, we’ll talk about the difference between vented and non-vented propane log set models.

Benefits of a propane gas log set

Why consider replacing your beloved wood fire with a propane log set? Consider these benefits:

  • Convenience – Press one button and your glowing fire is up and blazing; push it again and it’s off for the night, with no more ashes, wood chips, or embers to worry about.
  • Efficiency – As a heat source, gas logs are more than 80 percent efficient – four times more efficient than burning wood.
  • Aesthetics – Today’s log sets are more realistic than ever, mimicking your favorite woods.
  • Safety – With gas logs, you’ll say goodbye to flying sparks, rolling logs, or dangerous creosote buildup in your chimney.
  • Eco performance – In addition to besting wood on efficiency, propane also emits fewer smog-producing particulates and less CO2 – better for you, better for the environment.

If you’re sold on a propane log set, the next decision you’ll have to make is whether to choose a vented or vent-free model – more on that in our next post.
