A Gas Log Set or a Gas Insert – Which is right for me?
If you currently have a wood burning masonry fireplace and are considering switching to gas, there are two products we sell that can be installed into your fireplace – decorative gas logs or a heat producing gas insert. Both of the products give you the ease and convenience of simply turning the unit on by a switch or a remote control.
The main difference between the two products is the amount of heat that comes into your living space. The gas log set is a decorative appliance. It can only be installed into a fireplace that works well as an open wood burning fireplace. It will give you slightly more heat than what you feel when you burn wood. A gas insert is a furnace rated appliance that can be used as a zone heater, and will heat the room/space. We will gladly show the two different products and discuss which option may be best for you.
