How Do You Install Gas Logs?

Get help with home improvements to ensure your safety and comfort.

Many of our Charleston, SC customers don’t realize Fogel Services also lends a hand when it comes to home improvements, but some of the most practical and rewarding renovations require a professional touch. Take, for instance, installing a gas log fireplace. If you want the look and feel of the real thing, you’ll need a gas line and some professional know-how.

Two Kinds of Gas Logs

If you wanted to add a real log fireplace to your home, you’d be looking at tens of thousands of dollars in construction. An entire chimney would have to be built, which would mean removing essential elements of your home’s interior and exterior structures. For most homeowners, the benefits aren’t worth it when compared to the safety, elegance, and ambiance of a vented gas fireplace.

A non-vented gas fireplace also provides heat, but it’s more like an electric heater. These offer easier operation, lower costs for construction and heightened safety features.

In order to experience the charm of crackling embers on a chilly night, a gas flame is certainly a good solution. You’ll need a gas line and vents allowing for the removal of potentially harmful burn-off. Vented gas logs are more expensive. Because the flame is exposed, they pose traditional risks associated with the real thing. The good news is we can help you with either a vented or non-vented gas log fireplace project.

How Fogel Can Help

Whether you’re installing a vented or non-vented system, consider Fogel Services when it comes to running your gas line to your new fireplace. While the project is counted among intermediate level home improvements for DIY fans, anytime you are dealing with natural gas, you need to take serious precautions. Even the professionals need extensive training before they’re sent out on gas line calls. The reason is simply the danger inherent in getting the wrong.

You can request help with one element of a job or hire our professional team at Fogel Services to cover every aspect of your latest home improvements. Whatever the case, you can count on our NATE-certified techs to get the job done right. Schedule an appointment today to discuss gas log fireplace installation and other home improvements.
