Chimney Wildlife Tech, (214) 295-9318, can help you with everything you need to get gas log installation Dallas completed on your home.
This time of year is a good time to start thinking with any home improvements that you would like to get completed before the holidays. With school starting back up and summer coming to a close the end of the year will be here sooner than most of us would like. One of the easiest upgrades you can make to your home is a gas log installation Dallas. Just adding this touch to your home not only saves you from any mess of wood burning in your home but also gives your home custom look.
One of the first steps to take when you are getting a gas log installation Dallas completed in your home is to ensure there is a functioning gas line running into your fireplace. This is something that a licensed plumber can assist you with if there is not already an existing line. Once you have established a working line that runs into your firebox the next step is to measure your firebox to determine which size logs will look appropriate as well as function the best in the size of firebox that you have.
Measuring is very simple, grab a measuring tape and sit in front of your firebox, reach in to about the middle of your firebox and measure in inches from left to right. This of course would be done only on a completely cooled fireplace. You do not need to worry about hitting the perfect center or if you are off by a ¼ of an inch or not. You are looking for the basic width of your firebox. If there is a ¼ of an inch difference it will not effect the sizing of the logs.
Once you have this number the next step is to make your choice of log style. One thing to think with on this set is how long you plan on living in your home. While gas log installation Dallas does have an aesthetic appeal that it adds to your home you are probably interested in function as well, I am pretty sure you are not planning on replacing your gas logs every year or so. It is with this in mind that I suggest not to purchase your logs from a big box store. Most commonly these log sets are made overseas and have missing parts as well as often not functioning properly. The gas logs that Chimney Wildlife Tech sells are made in the USA by manufacturer Robert H. Peterson Gas Logs. They take the time to hand paint each log set and are what we have found to be the best in performance as well as looks.
