As winter weather begins, homeowners begin considering renovations that emphasize on staying warm and keeping heating costs down. Instead of dealing with the hassle of wood-burning fires, a gas fireplace can be a great way to heat an area without using electricity while retaining the look of a firewood fire in your fireplace.

Gas logs are a great alternative to firewood for multiple reasons. Among the reasons why so many homeowners choose to update their firewood fireplace to natural gas logs is that gas logs are much easier to use and maintain than firewood.

Because gas logs are significantly cleaner burning than firewood, installing gas logs results in much less time spent on fireplace and chimney maintenance. Cleaning up ashes and wood debris every time you use the fireplace will become a thing of the past. Additionally, you won’t have to clean your chimney and flue of creosote every couple of years.
