Log Options

Submitted by dan

Are you looking to set up a fireplace? There is nothing more rewarding than sitting in front of those roaring flames on a cold winter night. However, there are many different options for fireplaces, venting options, and installation ideas. To help a bit with the process, we've compiled a list of the three most popular types of log options and the benefits of each. 

Wood Logs

  • Wood logs are the most traditional and classic, producing a beautiful roaring fire and a wonderful smell. However, they are often messy and difficult to maintain. Additionally, if you do not live somewhere with firewood readily available, this may not be a viable option as firewood can be quite costly. Firewood also presents a fire hazard, something that may make parents of toddlers nervous. Gas logs can be a great alternative to wood burning logs.

Submitted by dan

This small heater proves the old saying that "great things come in small packages!" With strength that defies its small size, this heater will warm up your room in a record short time. Much like a central heating system, this heater heats up the air in the room and then circulates the warmth. No need to huddle close to the heater to get warm- the heating system will ensure that all parts of your room are equally comfortable.

Turn the heater on with a simple push of a button and let it do all the work of keeping the room a cozy temperature. Easily adjust the settings with the attached thermostat. The heater will also add moisture to the room, eliminating the need for an additional appliance to do the work.
