For many decades, fireplaces were enjoyed burning primarily either wood or coal. For many reasons, while the demand for fireplaces has remained strong, the use of coal as fuel has practically disappeared and the use of wood is falling rapidly.
Gas logs and other alternatives provide the means to enjoy your fireplace with the cozy glow of a fire without the mess and maintenance of a natural wood burning fire.
Gas logs offer an extremely realistic replacement for wood logs. Some are cast in molds from actual wood logs and then hand painted to bring out the texture, color, and pitting found in natural wood. Simulated ember beds using rockwool provide the flicker and glow like real wood embers.
