      Pilot Types Explained:
    • Electronic Remote Pilot – (Vented & Vent Free) This control type will include a remote and have a non-standing pilot that will ignite when activated by the remote, allowing gas flow to the main burner. With vented sets, the flame height will be fixed. With ventless sets, the remote will also allow you to adjust flame height.
    • No Pilot – Match light – (Vented Only) This will not feature a valve and will only be available with vented natural gas log sets. This option is not available with any ventless log set or any propane set. The burner will be lit with a match and the gas flow/flame height will be controlled with a previously installed manual ball or gas valve in the fireplace. Typically, this valve is located outside of the fireplace opening on the floor or wall.
    • On/Off Remote Pilot – (Vented & Vent Free) This pilot kit will feature a standing pilot that will have to be lit manually. The optional wall switch, On/Off or On/Off thermostatic remote will ignite the burner only. The flame height may be adjusted manually with the valve control knob, but not with the optional remote.
    • Safety Pilot – (Vented & Vent Free) This is the most basic safety valve available for vented propane log sets but is also available with vented natural gas log sets. The pilot is lit manually using either a match or long stem butane lighter via the valve control knob. After a few seconds, the pilot flame contact with the thermocouple will allow gas flow to the main burner. If the pilot flame is extinguished for any reason, gas flow to the main burner will cease, preventing the open flow of gas into your home (this will be the case with any pilot kit, with the exception of the natural gas match lit option).
    • Variable Flame Remote Pilot – (Vented & Vent Free) With vented log sets, this pilot kit will feature a standing pilot that will have to be lit manually. The optional Variable Wall Switch will turn on the flame and adjust the height up and down. The optional Basic Variable Remote will turn the unit on and off as well as adjust the flame height up and down, while the Deluxe Variable Remote will add thermostatic control. With ventless log sets, your results may show both standing and non-standing pilot kits. Either option will include a remote, but only the “Variable Flame Intermittent Pilot” option will feature a non-standing pilot flame that may be lit with the remote. You will be able to select either option on the left-hand side of the page in your filtered results.

    Ted
    from Grass Valley, CA asked:
    November 12, 2017
    What should I consider when installing these logs into an existing wood burning stove?
    1 Answer
    It is not recommended that a log set be installed in a wood burning stove, as the closed combustion nature of a stove damages gas valves while in operation.

    What is the difference between ventless and vented units?
    1 Answer
    Vented logs require an operable chimney and send considerable heat up through the flue. Ventless logs are carefully tuned and designed to not require a chimney. They are 99% efficient and send all heat produced into the room. No heat is lost up the chimney.

    1 Answer
    A vent free gas log set operates at a level of efficiency that allows it to only put out water vapor and carbon dioxide during combustion.

    I have an Empire Breckenridge VFD42FBOL ventless gas fireplace. Is the Empire 30" Stone River gas log set a good choice for that fireplace?
    1 Answer
    The 30" Vista burner is required for the 30" Stone Rover logs. This burner requires a minimum 17" opening depth for safe installation and the VFD42 has an opening depth of 16 1/2" without any optional brick panels installed. With optional brick panels, the opening depth of the VFD42 is 15 3/4". The Stone River log set is made specifically for see-through fireplaces or ventless fireboxes, so this would not be the best option anyway.

    We have a direct vent gas fireplace in our 2008 built home. Thinking we were going to freshen it up, we threw out the foam logs (we planned to paint the chamber and putting in new logs). We have since discovered log replacement in a direct vent can be a problem. Can we buy logs for a direct vent ?
    1 Answer
    Unfortunately, you are married to the part number in the product literature associated with the log set for any direct vent gas hearth system for the duration of ownership and this may not be swapped out.

    What is the difference in ventless and vented propane logs?
    1 Answer
    Ventless units will operate at a level of efficiency (99%), where it will only put out water vapor and carbon dioxide, while vented will be less efficient and will require venting to prevent carbon monoxide from entering the room.

    I have this set of logs that went to a Vent Free LP Gas Burner. It also had a remote to the old burner. The burner was thrown away by the previous owner and the brand of the logs is unknown to me. The fireplace insert is a Monessen. I do know the logs are for a 30 inch set burner. The main front log is 29" W. The main back log is 21" W. Can you please assist me in finding a burner that will go with this set of logs in a LP?
    1 Answer
    Unfortunately, we have no burner kits that would be able to work in conjunction with an unidentified log set, as they all have specific sets to which they must be paired.

    February 12, 2017
    I have a Heat-a-lator type fireplace insert made by Fuego. The dimensions are compatible with your gas log products except the height. It seems that most gas logs require 16" height. The opening of my fireplace is only 14.5 inches, but the glass doors are over 20 inches. The opening measurement is reduced by the lip of steel that goes across the front of the fireplace. But the measurement from the floor of the fireplace to the ceiling of the fireplace is well over 16 inches. Are there any gas logs (vented or unvented) that will work for me?
    1 Answer
    Unfortunately, we have no log sets that will accommodate your height.

    from Wake Forest, NC asked:
    February 6, 2017
    I have vent free propane gas logs in a masonry wood burning fireplace. Do I need a firebox installed in the fireplace in order to have a blower for the gas logs to distribute the heat? Or, do they have special blowers that do not need a firebox for this purpose?
    1 Answer
    Unfortunately, there will be no configuration that will allow you to use your existing gas log set and have a circulating blower. You would need to remove the existing log set and replace this with a Gas Fireplace Insert to have a blower.

    Aaron Bright
    from Indiana asked:
    January 31, 2017
    Our home has an abandoned wood burning fireplace. Due to the excessive cost to repair/replace the old chimney above the roof line, I decided to remove that section of chimney and cap it below the roof deck. I would like to add a vent-free, natural gas log set to the firebox so we can still have the ambiance of a fire. Before doing so, I plan to fabricate a metal block off plate to seal the firebox from the abandoned chimney that still runs through the center of the house. Therefore, the chimney would be blocked at the firebox and at the roof deck. Before we bought the house a couple of years ago, the previous owner used the fireplace as wood burning, for decades. Since we will be using a vent-free natural gas log set, would a chimney sweep/cleaning still be required prior to installing the block-off plate and sealing (on the firebox end) off the old abandoned chimney?
    1 Answer
    The requirement for installing any vented or vent free gas log set will be an existing manufactured ventless gas firebox, fully functional prefabricated wood burning fireplace or fully-functional masonry fireplace. The latter of the two options also require a fully functional chimney. Subsequently, the application you describe would require approval from the local authority holding jurisdiction, which would be your local code enforcement office.

    from GA asked:
    January 22, 2017
    What is the difference between vented and ventless? Which is better for heating?
    1 Answer
    Vent-free means that it operates at a level of efficiency that allows it to put off only water vapor and carbon dioxide, which is why it does not need venting. You will get considerable more heat out of a vent-free unit.

    I have been told that it is not safe to use vent free logs for extra heat. Is this true?
    1 Answer
    Vent free logs are safe, as they come equipped with an oxygen depletion sensor which will shut the unit down if there is any drop in the oxygen level of your home.

    If this is a wood burning fireplace with a set of gas logs installed, please provide the make and model number for the fireplace so that we may provide options. If this is masonry, please provide the front width, rear width and depth of the fireplace opening. If this is indeed a prefabricated gas fireplace, only the current log set may be used.

    What is difference between vented and ventless gas logs?
    1 Answer
    Vented Gas Logs Require a Fully Functional Wood Burning Fireplace, Ventless (or Vent Free) Gas Logs can be installed in either a wood burning fireplace, or a ventless fireplace that is rated for aftermarket ventless logs. Ventless gas logs will produce more heat, while vented gas logs will look much more realistic.

    December 17, 2016
    The vent-free gas log set is creating a carbon film on my trim in our gathering room. I have been told that is caused by the gas and air mixture, and the set should be replaced to a better quality set. My set is just a builder's quality made by DESA. If i purchase a new unit, will I be able to install it myself?
    1 Answer
    This could be caused by your air mixture, which is something that your installer can adjust by moving the arm of the air mixture. This could also be caused by the logs being placed in a way other than the manufacturer's instructions. Gas log sets should be installed by a certified technician or a licensed plumber.

    What determines whether you should buy vented or vent free logs? I have a natural gas fireplace and I'm not sure which way to go.
    1 Answer
    As long as the chimney system is in good working order, you could choose either style. Vented gas logs are designed for appearance and feature a tall, realistic flame pattern. They are not designed to provide much supplemental heat. Vent free gas logs are excellent supplemental heaters, however they have a low flame and require yearly maintenance to ensure that they burn cleanly.

    Paul
    from Rochester, NY asked:
    October 30, 2016
    I have an existing RealFyre log set installed in a conventional masonry fireplace (with damper). It has a standing pilot light and manual flame height controlled by a rotating knob. I would like to improve this by having a remote on/off with variable height flame control, without having a standing pilot being lit all the time. I think a APK-15, used in combination with the VR-1A flame control, might work. However, I have heard that the battery life is a big problem. Is this true, and is the combination of the APK-15 and VR-1A a workable system (If need be, I could run electrical power up through the cutout in the original fireplace cleanout door, following the path of the current gas line)?

    Unfortunately, Real Fyre does not offer a valve kit that allows for no-standing pilot and a variable flame remote. You can use the APK-15 with a VR-1A, but you will have a standing pilot.

    I have just purchased a set of your gas logs. There is a off-low-high control, but no thermostat. Can a thermostat be added?
    1 Answer
    Viewing your order, I see that you have purchased the manually controlled Everwarm burner assembly. This particular unit is not available for conversion to remote or thermostat control. I apologize for the inconvenience.

    Is there an extra cost for propane sets vs. natural gas sets?
    1 Answer
    Generally, for both vented and vent free log sets, there is no price up-charge for propane sets vs. natural gas sets. However, due to the used media, be it crushed glass or a more traditional log set, the price can vary somewhat. Additional cost variations will be dependent upon the valve and control type chosen.

    Vented gas logs outdoor fireplace I hear people say all the time looks good but very little heat. Would a Peterson gas logs or Hargrove radiant heat series be a better option?
    1 Answer
    It is indeed true that gas logs in an outdoor application do provide very limited heat. They are primarily for aesthetic purposes. A vent free log set will provide marginally more heat to the immediate area in front of the fireplace, but the primary issue is that even a slight breeze will dissipate the heat generated and carry it away. Only in a partially enclosed outdoor space would heat be allowed to build.

    Can I reuse vented gas logs if they got wet?
    1 Answer
    Vented gas logs will be composed of either ceramic fiber or solid refractory ceramics. In the case of ceramic fiber logs, they are porous and may need to dry prior to use. With solid refractory ceramic logs, they can simply be wiped down and will not hold water. There would be very little risk in either case as water vapor is already a harmless byproduct of construction and masonry chimneys are not all water-tight to begin with.

    I have a propane gas outdoor fire pit using a 18 inch fire ring. What size logs would you recommend? Also, do I need vented or ventless logs?
    1 Answer
    You will need solid refractory logs that are specifically made for outdoor use. The Firegear Spit Fire 18-Piece Refractory Log Set - L-SF or Firegear Beach Fire 8-Piece Refractory Log Set - L-BF would be my recommendations.

    There are several things you need to consider when you are buying fireplace gas logs for a new or existing fireplace. First is the fuel source. You can buy gas logs that burn either natural gas or liquid propane. If you already have appliances that use natural gas, that might be the easiest choice. Liquid propane can be used anywhere but usually requires you to install a tank outside your house. Second is whether to go vented or ventless. This decision takes into account the main purpose of your artificial fireplace: is it mainly for ambiance or for heat?

    A vented fireplace is one that has a chimney with an open damper. This kind can create a more natural-looking and more beautiful flame but it doesn't produce as much heat as a ventless model. A ventless fireplace can deplete the oxygen in a tightly enclosed area. Even though a ventless model burns the fuel more cleanly, because it discharges the combustion products into the room, a carbon monoxide monitor is required. Keep in mind that a ventless fireplace may be prohibited in some places. The final consideration is the style of log. This is where you can get creative. Modern ceramic gas fireplace logs have realistic bark detail and natural-looking splits. Logs are available that look as if the fire has just been started. Other styles look as if the fire has been burning for hours. With log shapes and colors, as well as a range of accessories, you can design just the look you want. Of course, you will also need to think about how big the logs need to be to fit your fireplace. For more complete information on the decisions you need to make, visit the Gas Log Guide. Other guides are available to answer your questions and to help you design your perfect fireplace.
