Let’s take a closer look at the kind of logs gas fireplaces use.

What Is a Gas Log?

As opposed to the wood that burns in a traditional fireplace, a gas fireplace uses gas logs that include piping and logs made of ceramic (or sometimes cement). The piping directs the propane gas through holes in the logs. Once ignited, the propane produces a steady flame by burning harmlessly on the surface of the ceramic logs.

Getting a fire started with a gas log is much easier than getting a traditional fire started. Gas logs can be ignited with the turn of a knob or the push of a button on a remote control. How easy is that?

Gas Logs vs. Firewood

Propane fireplaces, inserts, and gas log sets have a lot to offer. Here are a few of the benefits you’ll enjoy:
