Gas Starters in Chicago and Suburbs

New Gas Logs

Easily Start A Fire Every Time

With the help of an efficient gas fireplace starter (or log lighter bar), Capital Chimney Corp in the Chicago area can make starting a wood-burning fire quick and easy.

Starting a wood-burning fire can be a long and frustrating process. However, gas fireplace starters can be a reliable and convenient substitute for traditional fire-starting practices, even during a power outage. With a professionally installed fuel line (either natural gas or propane) gas is delivered into the pipe and easily lit using a long-stemmed lighter or match.

Advantages of Using Gas Fireplace Starters:

Gas starters consist of a pipe mounted under the grate and use gas to produce flames through several small holes along its length. Then these flames light the wood, and once the wood is well lit you can turn off the log bar. We have a selection of steel, cast iron, and stainless steel gas-based wood log lighters. These professionally installed lighters provide many advantages:

  • No more twisting, crumbling, and stuffing papers in between the logs
  • You do not need to cut off scraps of wood for kindling
  • You don’t have to buy or make a fire starter
  • You can simply set up the logs over the log lighter, no other materials needed
  • Quickly enjoy your fire in as little as 5 minutes
