    Do I have to use the embers or can I just omit and leave the burner pan as is? 
    1 Answer
    For a Real Fyre vented burner (G45 or G46), we do indeed recommend using the sand (natural gas) or vermiculite (propane) and the ember glow as directed in the installation instructions.

    I just noticed your site says the EM-1 embers aren't for use with the Real Fyre non-vented logs. My set of non-vented logs came with the embers two years ago, and they seem to have been fine. The instructions for the logs even said how to layer them. Are they now bad/dangerous to use with non-vented logs?
    1 Answer
    While the EM-1 is indeed designed for vented logs, there is a smaller bag that is marketed for use with the vent free models, known as an EM-1S and EM-11.

    Do you place the Ember Glow "on top" of Vermiculite granules in a full chimney vented Real-Fyre propane fireplace? I read that you NEVER use Sand with a burner designated for Propane. Can I just use lava stone and get the glow?
    1 Answer
    Is it indeed correct to use vermiculite rather than sand for an LP application, as the vermiculite allows air pockets to remain that ensures complete combustion of the LP gas. The ember glow material should be placed along the front of the burner pan, directly over the front burner tube. The ember material should not cover the rear portion of the pan. Lava granules should only be used as a design accent on the fireplace floor and should not be used to fill the pan.

    What are these Real Fyre ember glow artificial embers made of? Are they toxic?
    1 Answer
    The embers are manufactured from ceramic fiber, which is a non-toxic material that glows when heated. The material breaks down very slowly and has a negligible effect on air quality.

    How long does one bag of this Real Fyre ember glow (EM-1) last?
    1 Answer
    The ember glow material will last for many years before it needs replacement. Actual burn time will cause some variance of course, but the material can be expected to last for 3 years or more.

    from Godfrey, IL asked:
    February 27, 2015
    How should I layer this? Do I put down more sand then place this ember glow on top of it?
    1 Answer
    This product is manufactured from ceramic wool fibers, which give off a bright red glow that replicates the look of wood embers when heated. It is best to layer the product on the existing sand and maintain a thickness of approximately 1 inch. You may consider replacing your existing sand as well, as it can begin to hold in odors and turn dark after years of exposure to high temperatures.

    What are these made out of?
    1 Answer
    The ember glow material is made from ceramic wool. The material is a fibrous compound that glows continuously when heated.

    from CA asked:
    October 18, 2013
    Can I use the Real Fyre Ember Glow on the pan and under the rocks?
    1 Answer
    In a vented application, yes. The ember glow material inherently releases a small amount of byproduct when heated, so it is important to use the product only in a firebox with a properly functioning vent system.

    from Salisbury, NC asked:
    January 18, 2013
    What size logs will this item cover?
    1 Answer
    A single bag of the ember glow will suffice for 18 to 30 inch vented log sets. This will be enough to completely cover the ember burner tube on R.H. Peterson G45 and G46 burners. Additional ember glow can be used around the burner for decorative purposes.

    November 26, 2012
    Where do you put the Ember Glow? Does it go right on the logs?
    1 Answer
    The Ember Glow will sit on top of the sand which sits on the burner. Please that Ember Glow is only for use with vented log sets and only for use with natural gas sets.

    At first, when my husband added this to our fireplace I was terrified. But, when he showed me the beauty it adds to the whole ambiance I fell in love.
