More and more people are swapping their standard wood-burning fireplaces for gas and electric fireplaces. While there’s something magical about the crackle of a wood-burning fire, some may find that it’s not worth the effort and maintenance.
Gas log sets offer many benefits to the homeowner who still wants that cozy glow of a fireplace. Not only do gas logs generate more heat, but they’re also much safer than wood-burning fireplaces.
