Gas Logs vs. Firewood: Which is Better?

Posted: October 11, 2021

5 Reasons Gas Logs Are Better than Firewood

gas fireplace north carolinaThere are lots of things to love about a fireplace—the warmth, the coziness, the ambiance. There’s nothing quite like it. But traditional fireplaces that use firewood have some drawbacks. If you want comfort without the cleanup, consider a propane gas log set instead.

A propane gas log-set is easy to use and can look like burning wood. If you’d like to spend a cool night in front of a cozy flame in your eastern North Carolina home, here are five reasons to consider gas log sets as an alternative to wood:

  1. Gas logs are cleaner and more convenient. You don’t need to purchase or chop wood, spend time cleaning up ash, or pay for chimney maintenance. You don’t even have to look for matches. You can start your propane gas logs from the couch using a remote control! How easy is that?
  2. Gas logs save you money. There are a lot of expenses associated with a wood-burning fireplace that get eliminated when you switch to a gas log set. For every hour you use your fireplace, you’ll be saving at least 30%–40% in costs. And that’s before you even consider maintenance fees (which are much higher for wood burning fireplaces).
  3. Gas logs are eco-friendly. Propane is a clean-burning fuel that produces no harmful particulates. The carbon emissions associated with gas-fueled fireplaces are 35%–40% lower than those for traditional wood-burning fireplaces.
  4. Gas logs are safer than wood. Especially if you have children or pets, you’ll appreciate the safety of a gas log set. It’s also a smart and safer choice for small spaces. Gas logs don’t produce flying sparks the way real burning wood does.
  5. Gas logs can be customized. With gas logs, you have full control over what your fire will look like. Choose logs modeled after your favorite type of wood and pick the size and style you prefer. To see the options we offer at Cherry Energy, visit our showroom.
