How much fire glass is needed for a standard fireplace?
By Will M. on February 28, 2017
Answer:As fire glass may not be used for all fireplaces, there is no standard recommendation and we would need to know the make and model number of your hearth system. If this is a glass burner installed into a masonry or prefabricated wood burning fireplace opening, we will also need to know the front width, rear width, and depth of the opening to recommend the proper amount of glass to cover the hearth floor and glass burner.

Does "fire glass" give off heat, like wood gives off?
By Owen on September 18, 2017
Answer:No, the fire glass is only decorative. The gas burner would provide all of the heat.

I currently have a gas log fireplace. Can I take out the logs and switch to glass?
By Tyler M. - Fireplace Specialist on November 27, 2012
Answer:This will depend on the exact brand name and model number of your existing fireplace. Some manufacturers offer a glass tray or alternate media support system of some sort that will allow you to remove the existing log set and replace it with fire glass or ceramic stones. However, this is a relatively recent development and many older models of fireplaces were not designed for such a retrofit.

Is the fire glass prepared specially for heat or is it the same as decorative glass gems used to decorate vases, etc?
How would it work if you combined the glass gems with river rock to give some variety in the look?
