Vent Free Gas Logs: Concrete vs. Ceramic Fiber
Vent-Free gas logs are a popular style of log due to the amount of heat they provide as well as their heat efficiency. This efficiency leads to less pollution and fuel usage.
Vent-free gas logs can be used in a regular fireplace or can be used in a prefabricated vent-free firebox that has no chimney. While these logs will provide more heat, the flame tends to be lower than vented gas logs as they are only pulling directly from the room and not from outside.
Vent-free gas logs can be made of two different types of materials: ceramic fiber and concrete.
Ceramic fiber logs are known for their realistic burn, glow, and heat. Examples of ceramic fiber logs that are available at C. Bennett from Hargrove's Radiant Heat Series include: Rustic Timbers, Cross Timbers, Woodland Timbers, and Aspen Timbers.
Concrete refractory logs are known for their intricate detail and durability. Examples of concrete refractory logs that are available at C. Bennett from Hargrove include: Cozy Free, Heritage Char, Cumberland Char and Yukon Char. Notice the intricate details in these logs in comparison to the ceramic fiber logs above.
Which should you choose? It depends on what you or your customer prefer - additional warmth or additional detail?
