What Is A Gas Log Fire?
Gas log fires are ideal for capturing the warmth and cosy vibes of traditional wood burning fireplaces without the hassle of a wood pile.
Gas log fires resemble their wood burning counterparts but rely on an efficient natural gas or LPG supply for providing a reliable source of heat. The logs in gas fireplaces are made from stone or ceramic and are just there for show.
The benefits of gas log fires include:
- Instant uninterrupted heat
- Low running costs
- Environmentally friendly
- Stylish classic and contemporary designs
- Mood enhancing atmosphere
- No wood pile required
There’s a wide range of gas log fires available with options suitable for all Australian homes. So whether you want to capture the traditional vibes of a wood burning fireplace or go for a modern system to suit your contemporary home, gas log fires are designed with flexibility in mind.
Gas fires are capable of providing enough warmth for a single room or living space, so you’d be hard done by to find a gas heater that adds more style and atmosphere to the home than a gas log fire.
Mr Emergency has a team of technicians available 24/7 for gas log fire repairs and servicing so you can have your system operating at peak performance for the winter. We can also take care of the installation if you’re looking to improve the home with a new heater.

Types of Gas Log Fires
There are two main types of gas fireplaces: freestanding and in-built. Both styles provide similar heating benefits with the best option for your home depending on available space and personal preference.
Freestanding Gas Log Fires
A freestanding fireplace stands on its own free from walls, and doubles as a showpiece in any room. Positioned in a corner, by a wall or in the centre of a room, gas fires radiate heat from all sides. There’s a wide range of classic and modern styles to choose from.
Freestanding fireplaces are easier to install and maintain than in-built models, but they do take up additional floor space. These options are also more difficult to childproof if there are toddlers in the vicinity.
In-built Gas Log Fires
Save on floor space and maintain that modern, minimalist styling with an in-built gas fire. These heating options are built into the wall, taking up very little space. They are available in both modern and rustic styles and a range of sizes.
In-built options are often considered safer for children and pets. However, they can take longer to heat a room as they radiate warmth from just one side. They can also be more costly to install.
Whichever style you go with, there will always need to be a flue, which is the slimline chimney used for removing harmful fumes from the home. Existing fireplace owners will already have a flue installed. Otherwise, a licensed technician will install one along with a new gas fireplace.
Gas Log Fire Energy Rating
The beauty of gas heaters is their efficiency and lower running costs when compared to electric heaters. Natural gas and LPG heating costs around one third of the running costs associated with similar sized electric heaters. Plus, gas heaters are instant heaters, requiring next to no time at all to warm up. Talk about convenience!
Upgrade to gas heating, and you can expect a new system to carry a high energy rating. Gas energy ratings go up to six stars, and you will find a range of quality gas fires carrying a four, five or six star energy rating. The energy rating sticker will also inform you of how much energy a specific heater consumes per hour. You can use this data to work out expected costs for a system even before purchasing.
