Fortunately, the traditional pit of embers need not be the only way; fireplaces using gas logs for Greenville, SC homes can work just as well to create both warmth and romance. There are several advantages to going for a natural gas fireplace. First, no need to chop wood, no messy clean up of ashes either. The logs in your fireplace aren’t wood at all, but are made of ceramic or other heat-resistant materials, while the fire is fueled by a Greenville, SC propane gas service like Buchanan Fire and Outdoor. Second, because the fire is gas-powered, you can be assured of constant heat, unlike natural fire which needs to be stoked or fed with fuel manually.
