If we asked you what the four most important things in your home were, would you answer a fireplace, gas logs, chimney products, and fireplace accessories? If you would, you might be wrong. But you might be right. Studies are inconclusive as to exactly how important fireplaces, gas logs, chimney products, and fireplace accessories are to your home.
Some lists have chimney products and fireplace accessories in the 'most important' category, but leave fireplaces and gas logs out. Others rate fireplaces and gas logs as very important, but aren't too high on chimney products or fireplace accessories. Some don't have any fireplace-related items at all, which seems a little severe.
