Gas logs can be a good solution for a fireplace, instead of burning wood or pressed logs. Burning gas is cleaner, puts less wear and tear on fireplace and chimney which requires less maintenance.
Gas logs are typically made from concrete. A few will claim ceramic by putting in a small amount of ceramic into concrete logs. Still they are mostly concrete, but they can “advertise” them as ceramic. True ceramic logs are rare and they weigh very little but are probably much more effective getting heat into your home.
Most conventional fireplaces are very inefficient, in terms of heating a room”. All air flow goes up the chimney and only source of heat is “radiant” heat by having something in fireplace get hot and radiate heat out to room. Concrete logs are not very effective in this, and in our opinion true ceramic logs are significantly more efficient.
In purchasing gas logs, getting correct size is important. We have had people get too large a set that won’t fit in firebox or sets too small that look a bit odd. Further, there are different burners and grates especially good to know for larger fireplaces. We are always happy to consult with you and explain options.

Here is a Gas log set we recently installed in a fireplace.
This is a great set of gas logs that can be installed in a fireplace. It comes with a remote control ignition for ease of operation. This particular set is made with phazer logs.
Since these are true ceramic logs they produce far more radiant heat than conventional gas logs.
Phazer® logs are produced by a unique process where ceramic fibers are melded together in the form of a variety of log shapes. They are then hand painted and accented to create the most realistic looking logs available. The properties of the ceramic fibers allow the logs to withstand the extreme temperatures that they are exposed to within the combustion chamber of the fireplace. It is for this reason that our Phazer logs are guaranteed for life!
Initially performed an inspection on a fireplace. Later installed a new chimney cap and new interior kit (artificial logs, new gas line).
My inspection was performed by the owner of the company. He was right on time and performed a very thorough inspection of the fireplace in my new home. Since I had just purchased the home, I wanted the fireplace inspected by a certified professional before lighting it for the first time.
