With a set of gas logs in your hearth, though, the roaring fire you crave come winter is just a button click away. Pretty appealing, eh?
Converting a wood-burning fireplace to gas is a great home improvement project, but before you get started, you need to get a handle on what’s safe–and what’s not. After all, switching up your fireplace isn’t quite as simple as screwing in a light bulb. There are many factors that go into choosing the right gas logs for your home, installing and using them properly.
