How Do Gas Log Fires Work?

A gas log fire is a small, gas-operated heating system. It is a fireplace, installed into a single room that consists of incombustible "logs" (pebbles and coal pieces are alternative options) on top of gas vents. By giving off radiant heat, the experience of the fireplace is very similar to that of a traditional wood fireplace, without the mess, maintenance and cost of buying wood, but with all the warmth and comfort.

Gas log fires are a popular choice in a number of homes around Australia. Designed with flexibility in mind, gas log heaters come in a range of sizes and designs and can be installed in existing fireplaces. This means there is one to suit any home – from ultra-modern to traditional.

In Australia, all gas log fireplaces need to be flued outdoors for optimal safety and energy efficiency. Sealed combustion gas fireplaces are more efficient as they draw air from outside your home in one flue, and expel the combusted air outside through a separate flue, resulting in less energy waste and cost.

Styles of Gas Fireplaces

Modern gas log fireplaces come in two different styles - open gas convection boxes and glass-fronted sealed units. Both types of gas fireplaces are sealed to ensure efficiency and to minimise the likelihood of emissions or unburned gas fumes escaping into your home. Both also run on natural gas.

There are three kinds of positions of gas fires that you can consider when installing in your home:

  • Freestanding gas log fires – available in a range of designs with classic shapes for traditional homes and rooms. This style radiates heat from all sides and can heat the entire room up quickly. They are quick and easy to install and are easy to maintain.
  • Inbuilt gas log fires – save on floor space and complement the floorplan of your home. These heaters are often better for safety as children and pets cannot run around them. If an existing chimney is not in place, inbuilt gas fires can be more costly to install.
  • Console gas fireplaces – These fireplace heaters are installed up against the wall.

No matter what type of gas fire you have in your home, you can count on the experts at Metropolitan Heating and Cooling to get yours in prime working condition so you can enjoy optimal climate control during the chilly winter months.

Servicing Your Gas Log Heater

It is recommended that you have your gas fireplace serviced on a regular basis. Preventative maintenance can not only prolong the lifespan of gas fires but also stop minor problems from turning into major, costly issues. Gas fireplaces also need to be checked for harmful carbon monoxide leaks.

At Metropolitan Heating and Cooling, we can service both types of gas log fires. When performing a service, our qualified technicians:

  • Test for carbon monoxide
  • Test the thermostat
  • Ensure all internal parts are in good working order
  • Check gas pressures and connections
  • Check the flue
  • Provide you with a safety certificate of compliance

Frequently Asked Questions

Do you have questions about modern gas log fireplaces? We have the answers to some of the most commonly asked questions here.

In Australia, all units need to be flued to the outside atmosphere for safety. This also makes them much more efficient than their predecessors. So essentially this makes them less expensive to run than an old gas heater.  They are not the most efficient gas heaters around, but nor are they gas guzzlers. You pay a little bit more to run them for the look of them.  And when you compare them to traditional wood fireplaces with the cost of firewood continuing to rise dramatically, they are not an expensive or labour intensive way to get the same cosy effect.

By design, no. Gas logs are made of non-combustible ceramics or refractory cement.  They only look like they're burning.

This is a great question and we get it a lot. The answer, it depends. We suggest that, before you begin, you advise our professional gas fitters if you plan on mounting a TV above your fireplace. That way, they can ensure they give you only a selection of units that are safe to be below a TV.
