Gas Logs have many advantages over traditional firewood. These artificial logs will last a lifetime. Firewood has a single use life expectancy. You need to constantly and continually load firewood into your fireplace. Gas Logs require a single installation. In between the use of firewood it is necessary to remove the ashes from the fireplace. It’s not a hard job, but it is a job that no one enjoys. Oh yeah, now you have to dispose of the ashes. That’s not too hard, unless they spill and ashes go everywhere. Everyone who has, or has had a fireplace, has memories of cleaning up spilled ashes. Gas Logs do not generate ashes and therefore require no cleanup after use.
Quality hardwood like Oak can cost anywhere from $425.00 to $750.00 a cord. For that fee your firewood will be cut, split, delivered, and stacked in your garage or on your patio.
