Gas Fireplaces: Neat logs
The Old House Web
Tired of hauling in logs, hauling out ash and worrying about chimney fires? The White Mountain Hearth collection of vented / vent-free gas logs come in sizes ranging from 18 to 30 inches and are designed to fit in conventional fireplaces. Originally designed for use in vent-free fireplaces, these log sets work well in traditional flue-vented applications and can be ordered for use with natural gas or liquid propane (LP). The manufacturer's new Slope Glaze burners swirl the gas as it flows to produce naturally flickering gas flames. Log sets include a standing pilot and are adjustable to different heat levels, some with remote controls. The traditional log sets are available in a variety of styles from charred oak to birch.Prices start at $388 for a four-piece Weathered Oak set with 18" burner and top out at $587 for a five piece set with 30" burner (December 2004).
