gas logs are a great alternative to wood burningIf your home features a wood burning fireplace, a new realistic gas log set is a quick and affordable way to bring that drafty inefficient fireplace back to life. Gas logs are available today in many shapes, sizes and styles to fit with any type of home décor and budget. Once you install a set of gas logs, you enjoy the dancing flames from your fireplace with a flick of a switch. G&B Energy & Appalachian Energy sell, install and service vent free logs and vented gas logs.


Vent free products are excellent choices to inexpensively add supplemental heat to an area. Vent free products use air from within the room for combustion then “vent” the heat back into the room. Because of this, some people notice an odor that is associated with combustion. Allergy and asthma sufferers, along with the elderly and young children, are most affected by the odor. For this reason, the manufacturers of vent free products recommend a window or door be cracked while operating your vent free product. If you suffer from breathing problems, direct vent products should be your first choice.

We offer vent free gas logs in sizes from 18 inches to 36 inches. We sell manual and millivolt (remote ready) and IPI (Intermittent Pilot Ignition) gas logs that are certified for masonry fireplaces or vent-free fireboxes. Millivolt models are designed for use with a remote control or a wall switch and feature a pilot light that must be lit at the beginning of every heating season. IPI models feature a full function remote control and they DO NOT have a pilot light that requires attention. These units feature electronic ignition and are lit by pressing a button on the remote control. The power required to light the logs is provided by a battery pack.

Vented gas logs create ambiance and the appearance of a roaring fire without the hassle and mess associated with a wood burning fire. Vented gas logs are best suited for customers that want a small amount of radiant heat but desire the look of a roaring fire. Because the damper in a fireplace must be locked in the open position when vented gas logs are installed, vented gas logs are very inefficient compared to a vent free gas log or direct vent insert. They do however give the most realistic appearance of any gas log set available. Vented gas logs are also available in a variety of styles and sizes ranging from 18 inches up to 60 inches.
