Do these coals actually add to the heat generated or are they merely

I am looking for a product which would enhance the flames of the fire.
By Dennis on October 17, 2011
Our fireplace is 39" at the back, 47" at the front and 20" deep. I'm looking at Real Fyre 24" Charred Oak Vented Natural Gas Logs Set with Variable Flame Automatic Pilot Kit , with the basic remote. I'd like to know how many bags of Real Fyre Lava-Fyre Coals - LFC-10 you would recommend I buy to go with this set, and how many bags of Real Fyre Lava-Fyre Granules - LF-10 I should purchase. I'm also considering buying one bag of the Platinum Embers.
Also, is the 24" set the right size for my fireplace?

Answer:Firstly, per your dimensions, I would recommend a 30" log set. Even with the pilot assembly that you are interested in, a 30" set will fit just fine. The coals are hard to judge, though. Peterson is not so good as to provide a reference chart for such questions. I'd recommend starting with one bag of each. If this does not do the trick, you can always add more later. In your installation, please remember to not bury the valve with these coals.

I just have the ceramic vented logs. What else do I need to cover the base? I see there are lava coals, vermiculite granules, and lava granules. Which do I use?
By Kevin E. - Fireplace Specialist on October 4, 2012
Answer:That all depends on the gas type used in your application. Vermiculite is recommended for use in a liquid propane set. Sand is reserved for natural gas. Lava coals/granules are intended to cover the firebox floor surrounding your burner pan.
