Gas fireplace logs installation, repair, and replacement are easy with Capital Chimney Corp in Chicago, IL. We have the selection, advice, and knowledge you need if you have been considering this stylish, versatile home heating option.
What Are Gas Fireplace Logs?
Gas fireplace log sets are made of a ceramic or a refractory cement mixture that is specially designed to withstand the high temperatures inside your fireplace. Some log sets are reinforced with steel bars to increase their strength and durability.
Vented Vs. Ventless Gas Logs
We can install either vented or vent-free gas fireplace logs in your fully functional wood-burning fireplace. Both are beautiful and effective at producing heat for your home.
Vented gas logs require you to have a working fireplace and chimney system. They produce a very realistic-looking flame. Ventless gas logs don’t require a chimney or open damper. Your vent-free flames may not be as high as you’re used to, but your warmth payoff is great.

If you love the look of gas logs, but currently have a wood-burning fireplace, let us convert your system to a new one you’ll love. This is also a great time to consider a fireplace facelift.
