Vented Gas Logs High Point, NC

Vented Gas Logs

Millions of vented logs are in use in fireplaces across the US and are still the most popular type. They are available in lengths from 12” to over 60”. Vented logs are the most realistic wood fire substitute made, and are available in different styles and finishes which resemble oak, birch, hickory and many other wood species. This realistic beauty comes at a price; vented logs are also the least efficient of the three types. They consume from 50,000 to 90,000 BTU/HR of Gas which costs 60 cents to $1.50 per hour (Natural Gas) and 75 cents to $1.75 per hour (LP). The efficiency is rather low, meaning that only 10% of this heat is returned to the home. The rest goes up the chimney, much like your old wood fire did.

The reason Vented Logs look so good is they intentionally burn the Gas “dirty”. The glowing embers found on most of these sets add to the charm and realism. The Vented Log Sets are also the most flexible – logs can be moved around and re-positioned remote controls and wall switches are available and additional logs, embers, branches and pine cones can be added. If you are looking for the most realistic fire, and don’t have a heating problem in the room or in your home, then the Vented Logs may be a good option for you.
