Baby, It’s Cold Outside … but Nice and Warm Inside!

Posted on 21 February 2011

After the last appreciable storm of 2011, a major branch on one of my oaks cracked beneath the weight of the white stuff, making casualties of three more branches.  When the snow melted, my husband played Paul Bunyan by removing the affected branches. After I played Florence Nightingale by doctoring the many cuts on his face and hands, as well as the pulled muscle in his back, he gave thanks that we don’t have to chop wood for a fireplace.  When he washed his work clothes, leaving me to find tiny branches in our washing machine, I gave thanks as well!

Those with traditional wood burning fireplaces must face these challenges in keeping their homes toasty for the winter.  But, there are far more convenient and energy-efficient alternatives than wood.  Those alternatives are Gas Logs.


Hansen Wholesale and Gas Logs are the authorities on R. H. Peterson Real Fyre Gas Logs.  As a quality-oriented company with years of experience, Peterson gas logs are the only brand that they supply.  When the Internet was still in its infancy, Hansen Wholesale and Gas Logs responded to their customers’ growing needs by offering Robert H. Peterson gas logs online; in 1994, they were the first dealer to do so. 

Dependent upon customer requirements, the logs are available as Vented Gas Logs and Ventless Gas Logs.  The vented logs can only be burned in a wood-burning fireplace, with the damper open.  While most of the heat is sent up the chimney, they provide a beautiful, realistic display in your fireplace, as if you were burning wood.  The ventless or vent free variety must also be used solely in a wood burning fireplace, with the damper closed.  As the ventless logs usher most of the heat into the home, one must ensure that the house is ventilated via an open window, and certain building codes forbid the burning of ventless gas logs in bedrooms or confined spaces.

Because Hansen Wholesale and Gas Logs are fully committed to your enjoyment, safety, and understanding of how gas logs must be installed and utilized, their Gas Log FAQs furnish comprehensive answers to your questions.  While we still have snowy days and chilly temperatures, take advantage of their great, special discount offer.  The company is waiving sales tax and slashing prices on all complete sets by $75.  Free shipping is available, with some restrictions. The website will provide you with complete information.
