Go with a clean and green alternative!


Our vent-less gas log inserts replace wood burning fireplaces. Our logs are 99.9% efficient in heating your home – burning wood is only 10-30% efficient! Most of your fuel costs go right up the chimney! New models feature very realistic flames complete with glowing “embers.”

We also sell vented gas logs! Vented gas logs are not as energy efficient as vent-less logs but the flames look very, very close to wood burning logs. (Vent-less are 99.9% energy efficient, vented logs are about the same as wood – 10% to 30% efficient.) The natural gas can be burnt a little “dirtier” since the carbon monoxide can be vented up the chimney just like wood burning logs resulting in a bigger variation in flame colors. Vented logs offer the convenience of gas logs – no more buying, stacking and hauling firewood, no more worries about termites or debris in your home. Remote control is available for the ultimate in convenience.

The children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren of some of the original employees still proudly work to produce our products, truly making this a family business.
