Gas Logs are a more convenient and energy efficient alternative to gas fireplace inserts. Allen Chimneys, LLC will quickly and easily convert your wood burning fireplace to either vented gas logs or vent free gas logs, at an affordable rate! Here, at Allen Chimneys, we only install the finest quality of gas logs that are not only durable but also give a very realistic look.
Vented Gas Logs
Vented Gas Logs or "yellow flame" logs require chimney ventilation. This means that you must have a chimney that services the logs. Vented gas logs also produce a very realistic looking fire and a pretty comparable amount of heat to your typical wood burning fireplace. Please keep in mind that these types of gas logs also require annual sweeping maintenance, as recommended by the CSIA, because soot and other by-products are being drafted out.
Vent Free Gas Logs
Vent Free Gas Logs or "blue flame" logs do not require ventilation. Without the need for a chimney to vent out by-products, vent free gas logs can be installed in other parts of the home and not only within a fireplace. Vent free gas logs produce more heat that the vented gas, "yellow flame" logs, yet are generally a bit less realistic looking than the vented logs.
