Types of Gas Log Fires

Gas log fires are a beautiful inclusion to any living room, bedroom or even an outdoor space. There is always a look to suit anyone with a variety of sleek designs and sizes. Whether your home is classic or modern, you'll find the right match.

Gas Fireplace Inserts

Gas log fireplace inserts are the perfect replacement for an existing wood fireplace. It removes the hassle of looking after a wood fire that requires a constant supply of fresh firewood as fuel. Instead, you can keep the ambience with a real flame but enjoy the benefits of low maintenance ceramic logs. They fit all standard fireplace sizes, so installation is a breeze.

Free Standing Gas Log Fireplaces

Free standing gas log fires are a great addition to rooms of all sizes. They can go in the corner, against a wall, or even in the middle of a large space. Free Standing options are great as outdoor fireplaces, too. Installation is less invasive as your walls remain intact. And as far as heaters go, there are many benefits with the same great impact as a traditional combustion heater.

Double Sided Fireplaces

Double sided gas log fireplaces deliver fantastic design flexibility. They provide warmth on both sides, meaning they can divide a space as part of a feature wall. Popular installation locations include between the kitchen and living room, or dining space. Double sided fireplaces can also be located centrally in a large living space so that the gas log fire become the feature of the space.

Unsure about what you want? Jim's Air Conditioning can send a local expert to assess your home's potential to determine what would work best.

How a Gas Log Heater Works

Gas log fires offer the wonders of a real log fire without having to chop wood! But how exactly does they work?

All gas fireplaces work in the same way, whether inbuilt or freestanding. Even if they look slightly different or have been installed in a unique way, the basics are the same.

Just like a real fire, there is a fuel source and a real flame. But unlike an open fire, the unit is enclosed and the burning logs are fake. The non combustible wood is traditionally ceramic, and the realistic design certainly attracts a second glance.

You'll also find pebbles or sand underneath the ceramic wood to help with insulation and heat retention. There is a burner located among the fake wood, hence the real flames and heat. There is no illusion, just far less mess.

Additionally, carbon monoxide and other chemicals created by the fuel burning process are removed via a flue. This means potentially harmful gases are efficiently taken out of the home.

Gas Fireplace Safety Services

Because gas fires do run off natural gas, it's important to pay attention to safety and maintenance. Any slip-ups and you could be at risk of serious side effects from a gas leak or carbon monoxide leak. There's even the added danger of household fire or explosion.

While the a housefire may be a worst case scenario, safety is critical nonetheless. You don't want to be caught unprepared. That's why routine maintenance is your best friend. And with some help from Jim's Air Conditioning, our local gas fitters will ensure your fireplace is safe and sound.

Whether it's installing a new fireplace or maintaining an existing one, we're here to look after it. We provide a range of services, including gas leak detection, flue repairs and general heater maintenance.

Our licensed gas fitters will keep an eye on fittings and fixtures both inside and outside the home. From the heater to the gas mains meter, we will assess everything to ensure it is sound. Other important safety services include gas vent inspection and pilot light burner maintenance.

All of our gas log fire services comply with Australian guidelines and regulations. You can trust that our work is safe, secure and certified. You will receive a certificate of compliance upon completion, outlining that your recent gas fitting job and gas appliance meets all regulations.

Gas Log Fires FAQs

Have a question about gas log fires? Jim's Air Conditioning has you covered.

No, not all gas fireplaces or gas log fires require a flue. Some heaters are ventless/unflued and the carbon monoxide produced is not directly vented out of the home. Other models have catalytic converters that convert the carbon monoxide into harmless carbon dioxide. However, if your heater is unflued, carbon monoxide can remain in the room. An unflued gas heater should never be used in small rooms, or spaces with poor ventilation, due to the potential health risk. It is highly recommended you do purchase a flued gas fireplace.

Gas heating produces roughly three times as much heat as an electric counterpart would. That means you could be saving about two-thirds on your yearly energy bills. When comparing gas units, such as a log fire to ducted heating, the costs balance out relatively well. The main difference is ducted systems can heat the whole home while gas log fireplaces are isolated to 1-2 rooms.

Depending on use, you can expect the actual ceramic log to start showing wear and tear after 2-3 years. This certainly doesn’t mean it needs to be replaced yet, though. A well maintained gas log fireplace should protect the ceramic logs for 5+ plus years before you need to consider any major repairs. Many gas log fires can last for 10 years or longer.
