    These embers are only intended for use with select Empire gas fireplaces.  For a Real Fyre vented system, we would recommend the Platinum Bright Glowing Embers.

    Can I use just Platinum embers or do I have to mix it up with rock wool too?
    1 Answer
    We would recommend using the platinum embers in conjunction with standard embers that would be included with the burner/log set.   The platinum embers are sold in very small quantities as this is the intended application.

    from Hideaway, Tx asked:
    December 28, 2017
    Will these embers work in a ventless fireplace?
    1 Answer
    Only with certain Empire ventless gas log sets and fireplaces. With any ventless system, only the ember material listed in the installation manual under the "replacement parts" section should be used and will have to be placed exactly as described in the product literature. If different material is used, this may result in incomplete combustion and the release of carbon monoxide into your home.

    from new jersey asked:
    December 17, 2017
    Do these embers go directly on the flame or just below the fire?
    1 Answer
    Enhancement embers are just meant to go below the burner, although you can use a high heat glue to adhere them to the logs if your manual advises you may.

    I have a White Mountain Vented / Vent Free VFDR18LBP Cermaic Fiber log Set. Will this product work for my unit? If so how is it added to the set? And 1 gram seems like a very small amount, is this correct or a typo on the web page?
    1 Answer
    That is the correct amount. It is spread out evenly across the burner. Instructions are included for showing how to spread it properly.

    We would not suggest these for your unit, as we are not a Heat & Glo dealer and none of our embers are tested or approved to be used with their units.

    from Cary, NC asked:
    November 2, 2013
    Do the embers go between the logs themselves, or at the front of the logs?
    1 Answer
    These embers need contact with flames in order to glow. Accordingly, it is best to sprinkle embers on the burner pan beneath the logs. However, some log sets have an elevated screen that is placed on the grate of the log set to serve as "platform" for these embers.
