It might be summer right now, but I’m feeling warm and cozy in my living room about now. The gas log project has been finished and I couldn’t be happier with how they turned out. I’ll be in good shape come Fall, when those logs will create a nice ambiance in that space. There’s just something so cozy about a fire and with gas logs looking so real these days, I’ve got the look without the mess.
These are vented logs and all the installer had to do after putting in my logs was to turn on my gas supply and light them.
The installer from The Fireplace Company came out at the scheduled time and spread out a protective blanket over my hearth. We vacuumed out the old ashes that were left in there.
Getting it ready for installation. Lava rocks go in the bottom and then the logs are installed along with real looking embers.
That’s my favorite part about these gas logs now. The embers look SO realistic! Even though I chose the least expensive oak set, the Classic Oaks, they look very good to me.
This set will serve me well for years to come. Don’t you love those embers? It really does look real. I didn’t get the remote control starter, because my sister said it wasn’t really necessary. If you use the remote, then the flame stays at the same level all the time and I might want to move the flame up and down at times. With the old-fashioned key on the hearth, all I have to do is hold a long lighter in there and turn the key. Instant flame!
I love my gas logs!
