Summertime is a great time to look at making changes to your home and property. You might try adding some landscaping, or repainting some interior walls. You could redecorate your bedroom by buying new bedding, adding new carpet, and putting up a few new pictures. Another place that you could make a change is in the living area, and your fireplace might be a great place to start.
Wood Burning Fireplace
If you have a wood burning fireplace, you might think that there is nothing quite like the feeling you get from relaxing in front of a crackling fire. However, there is a lot of work involved in building and maintaining a wood fire. You need to chop and split the wood, cure it for at least six months, find a good place to store it, and then lay the logs, start them, and keep the fire going throughout the night. If you purchase wood, you have to pay for it, and you really don’t know if it’s been properly cured until you try to burn it. It may be that you’re getting a little weary of the care and upkeep of your wood burning fireplace, and if that’s the case, there’s a great solution. Re-outfit your fireplace with gas logs.
The Convenience of Gas Logs
One of the benefits of installing gas logs is the convenience of it. All you need to do is light a match under the log set and you have heat, with none of the work of a wood fire. In some cases, you can start your fire with a flip of a switch. You may think that you will lose a lot of the aesthetic appeal if you decide to switch to gas logs, but that is not the case with modern gas logs. The look is surprisingly close to that of natural wood logs, and they can’t be covered by glass doors, which also creates a more authentic look.
