    Lorena
    from LA asked:
    October 30, 2012
    What is the difference between vented and ventless logs?
    1 Answer
    There are a several primary differences between vented and ventless log sets. Vented logs will need to utilize an existing chimney in good working order. Ventless logs are not designed to utilize the chimney; you simply close the damper in the fireplace where you have installed the log set. It is important to note that while ventless log sets allow the damper to be closed, the chimney must still be in place, just as with vented log sets. Vented logs produce more overall heat, but a great amount of this heat will be drawn up the chimney due to the negative pressure created by the rising heat. As such, vented log sets are primarily designed for ambiance and realism. Since ventless logs do not utilize a chimney, almost all of the heat stays in the room. Ventless logs also open the door to installation into a prefabricated firebox, which does not have to utilize a chimney vent, due to the purpose built and heavily insulated design. For more information on differences and pros and cons, please see our Gas Log Guide.

    Unfortunately, gas log sets used with B-vent fireplaces may not be replaced with a different log set for various safety reasons. You may only replace the existing log set with the same log set identified in the product literature.

    I have a vented gas fireplace. I always keep the flu open when in use which means heat loss. Is it really necessary to keep open during fires?
    1 Answer
    I'm afraid that having to keep the damper open during the burn of a vented fireplace is indeed a drawback. Vented fireplaces do not burn as cleaning as their vent free counterparts. This necessitates the need for the damper to be open to allow harmful byproducts to escape to atmosphere.

    I have a ND4236IL Heatilator fireplace. I get cold air blowing out the lower grill when not in use. Do you have any idea why?
    1 Answer
    It is likely due to the fireplace being installed on a perimeter wall or exterior chase that lacks sufficient insulation. Your home will always be exchanging air with the outdoors and will pull this make up air from the easiest point of access.

    December 7, 2015
    I'm looking for LP gas logs to replace an old set I have now. What is a vented or ventless gas log set? What does glass color mean? How do I determine what BTU I want?
    1 Answer
    Vented gas logs will provide greater aesthetics as they exhaust any potentially harmful gases to the outdoors via your existing masonry or prefabricated chimney flue, while ventless logs provide greater heat with limited aesthetics as they provide 99% complete combustion via a very controlled burn that negates the need for any venting as they burn away all negative byproducts of combustion. The glass color is an option offered with fire glass sets that use glass pebbles as opposed to traditional logs. For choosing your Btu input, you will be limited to the options that will work with your existing fireplace dimensions. For this, you may use our gas log calculator to view the options that can be safely installed. Generally speaking, higher Btu log sets will offer larger, more realistic flames. Please let me know if you have any questions.

    November 7, 2015
    The 4 SKU's listed in the attachment appear to be the same item. Can you please tell me what the difference is between them and what feature makes them have a price difference?
    1 Answer
    I will be happy to explain the differences. You will notice that two of the sets have ANSI in the titles. This indicates that the burner will ship with the valve assembled and meets the ANSI/CSA certification that some code authorities call for. The slightly less costly sets will have the valve shipped with the burner, but not assembled. The other difference is between the valves used in each set. Each regular and ANSI set will utilize either the APK-15 or APK-17 valve, designated by the number at the end of the SKU. The APK-15 is a higher quality valve and allows for flame height control both on the valve and the remote. Unfortunately, it is also larger than the APK-17 and more challenging to camouflage. The APK-17 is a lower profile valve, but has a higher failure rate.

    My fireplace has a middle width of 28" and a depth of 17". Can I use an 18" Real Fyre log set with the G46 burner system?
    1 Answer
    Yes, your firebox has sufficient depth and middle width for a 18" G46 burner system. In fact, your unit is large enough to fit a 24" G46 burner if the 28" measurement is accurate, as 28" is the required middle width for a 24" G46 system.

    I have a Superior RD-3300A fireplace that I would like to install vented gas logs into. It's 22" wide at the opening 17"deep and has a 17" rear width. I live in California and I know we have certain fireplace laws that dictate what I can use.
    1 Answer
    California does indeed only allow for the use of a vented appliance. Because of the narrow width of your fireplace opening, you will need to use one of our smaller log sets, which is the Real Fyre 16" Golden Oak Vented Natural Gas Logs Set - Match Light. This compact match light set will just fit your fireplace opening.

    Is it possible to install a long wall mounted gas (vent) fire place below a normal window level? One 12-18 feet or 2 or 3 6-feet fire place units in length will do. Does this installation require extensive works to install a vent system?
    1 Answer
    Unfortunately, no. The linear models of fireplaces tend to have a chassis that is relatively tall, in order to provide enough oxygen and recirculating air to the flame along the burner. Overall chassis height is usually at least 40 inches and can be taller depending on the model. Most models also usually require a vertical vent, which can make an installation below a window even more challenging.

    An excellent replacement model would be the Superior DRT3035 Pro Series 35" Top/Rear Vent Fireplace with Aged Oak Logs - Electronic Ignition. This model features very similar framing dimensions, but adds electronic ignition and features a very lifelike flame pattern that few other manufacturers can match.

    Does a vented gas log fireplace give off more or less heat than a wood burning fireplace?
    1 Answer
    Generally, vented gas log sets give off less heat than a wood fire. This is primarily due to the fact that the log set cannot match the BTU potential of a wood fire. For heating capability, a sealed direct vent gas insert is the best appliance to utilize.

    For an existing wood burning masonry firebox at a Master Bedroom (2,500 cubic feet), can a gas log set be installed?
    1 Answer
    As long as there is not a local code that prohibits installation of a gas log set in a bedroom, there is no reason why you cannot install one. A set of vented logs or a set of vent free logs that has an output of 10k BTUs or less could be installed.

    Can we use 20" logs in a firebox that measures 20" at the back and 30" at the front?
    1 Answer
    As long as your fireplace has a minimum depth of 13 inches, you can indeed use a set of match light, 20 inch natural gas logs. Addition of a pilot kit would take up too much space, so I'm afraid a match light set would be the only option in this case.

    from Nashua, NH asked:
    August 10, 2014
    Do you think there is a 36 or 40 inch vent free in the near future?
    1 Answer
    Likely not. The issue is that vent free appliances are limited to a 40k BTU input. This is to prevent issues with oxygen depletion or excess moisture building up in the room. Because this BTU limitation also limits the size of the flame, manufacturers typically limit their log sets to 30 inches. Larger sets would not offer a large enough flame to look proportional to the log set.

    Audra
    from Alexandria, VA asked:
    July 30, 2014
    I currently have a wood and pellet burning insert installed in my fireplace, and I want to switch to gas logs (vented, I think). I don't know the exact measurements of the fireplace (since the insert is still installed). But, the rough measurements of the opening are 48"W x 28"L x 18"D. The fireplace is probably deeper than this. At any rate, can you please recommend a size of gas log and exactly what I need to have it set up?
    1 Answer
    I will be happy to assist. The sizing for the gas logs will range between 30 to 42 inches, depending on how much taper your fireplace opening has towards the back wall. The log size also changes based on the burner type that is used. We offer manual and remote systems, but the remote systems require more space to fit. Do you have an idea of what type of burner control you would like to have? Also, will you be using natural gas or propane? Please advise at your convenience.

    I have an outdoor fireplace that smokes quite a bit with regular logs. I was told that the fireplace was not built properly, that the opening going up to chimney is too small, and that the chimney is not high enough for more draw. With these facts, could I still go with the vented logs (because I want more realistic flame)?
    1 Answer
    Vented logs could indeed be installed into the fireplace, as the outdoor installation will eliminate any danger of CO leaking into the immediate area.

    I know it would be difficult, but we have a free standing wood stove in our great room/ kitchen. I want to convert it to gas logs. We have a pipe vented to an outside chimney. What do you suggest?
    1 Answer
    This can indeed be done, but it will compromise the integrity of the stove in most cases. A gas line must be routed into the stove, which may require drilling a hole in the outside of the stove body. Any log set that is used must only require a mechanical gas valve, as any electronic valve is likely to overheat. If you would like to provide the width, height, and depth of the firebox, I will be happy to suggest potential options.

    I have a double sided wood burning fireplace that is 36" wide, 28" tall and 32" deep. Which propane, vented log sets would you recommend?
    1 Answer
    For your application, it is recommend to use a set with a 24 inch width. An example of one of our best sellers that will work for you is the Real Fyre See Thru 24" Charred Oak Vented Propane Gas Logs Set with Variable Flame Automatic Pilot Kit. This set comes complete with a pilot assembly that will allow you to vary the flame height. We do offer versions with a manual pilot as well, which are available at a lower cost.

    How hard is it to put one of these in yourself?
    1 Answer
    While certainly feasible for a handy homeowner to install, our gas log sets require meticulous attention to detail. As such, we would recommend having an experienced plumber ensure the safety of the gas line connection during installation.

    We have just moved into a home in Florida which has a wood burning fireplace with glass doors. The front width is 42 inches, the rear width is 26 inches, the height is 22 inches, and the depth is 20.75 inches. We are looking for advice and cost on the type of log insert and valve with remote (preferably with one that the pilot light does not have to stay on all the time). Since we are also looking for effect rather than heat we need something that will be the most attractive as well as efficient. Should we paint the fire bricks behind the logs black for a better visual appearance when the fire is on?
    1 Answer
    For your application, a vented gas log set would be the best product to use, as it gives an impressive flame pattern with minimal heat added to the room. A unit that uses an electronic pilot kit would eliminate the need for a standing pilot. A properly sized set is the Real Fyre 30" Charred Oak Vented Natural Gas Logs Set with Electronic Pilot Kit. It is certainly possible to paint the concrete liner panels in the back of the unit, prior to installing the log set. If you have a particular look or style of logs in mind, I can certainly locate something that better suits your taste.

    I am putting this gas log set in an existing wood burning fireplace. When I buy your gas log set, could I pull out the ceramic logs and burn real wood if I wanted to burn the real thing every now and then and how hard is that to remove the ceramic logs?
    1 Answer
    Once your woodburning fireplace has one of our gas log sets installed, you can no longer burn wood unless you completely remove the log set and burner. Our gas log sets are in no way to be used in conjunction with burning real wood.

    Which is the most beautiful vented gas log set that may also have sound effects?
    1 Answer
    While we do have a variety of realistic log sets, none include their own sound effects. However, you can add the Real Fyre Crackler with Pine Cone Cover - PCC1 or the Real Fyre Crackler with Wood Chunk Cover - WCC1 for a representation of the cracking and popping sounds of a real wood fire.

    from Atlanta, GA asked:
    December 16, 2013
    I have a Heatilator EL 42 and would like to install gas logs. I have been getting conflicting information about vented vs vent free burners and logs. Heatilator does not recommend vent free logs but I have been told they can be installed anyway. The explanation was linked to the fact that Heatilator does not undergo the added testing and overall does not support vent free. Is there a risk to installing vent free logs and cracking the damper a few inches? Vent free has a lower BTU than vented and real wood, so I am unclear on the risks. Can you give me any advice on this?
    1 Answer
    If a unit has not been specifically tested and listed for use with a vent free burner and log set, I do not recommend installing one. It is assumed that operating the vent free logs with the damper cracked open slightly would prevent an issue, but it is difficult to say. The unit was tested with the damper fully open. Using logs in the unit with the damper mostly closed could compromise the clearances the unit has by design, which could affect the wood framing behind the fireplace.

    I have a Majestic RC36 wood burning fireplace that I'd like to convert to propane. The dimensions are 33" front width, 21.5" rear width, and 16.5" depth. Can you recommend a vented insert?
    1 Answer
    Per your listed dimensions, a couple of popular sets that will fit your application are the Real Fyre 20" Golden Oak Designer Plus Vented Propane Gas Logs Set with Safety Pilot Kit and the Real Fyre 20" Post Oak Vented Propane Gas Logs Set with Safety Pilot Kit. Both sets use a manual valve with a standing pilot and the reliable Peterson G45 burner system. The kits will come with all necessary components for setup.

    We have a wood burning fireplace with a propane gas strip in the floor of the fireplace. What kind of vented set do we need? Can fake logs just be placed on the existing gas jets?
    1 Answer
    It is certainly possible to use a log set in conjunction with the propane log lighter, but a gas burner would offer a better appearance. If you would like to provide the width, depth, and height of your fireplace, I will be happy to suggest the proper log set.

    Can you tell me where the ignitor switch would be for this model?
    1 Answer
    Per the manufacturer, this valve does not use an ignitor. The pilot must be lit manually with a match or lighter. This can be done by turning the control knob to the "pilot" position, then pressing in on the knob while holding a match or lighter flame just above the pilot tube. Once the flame is lit, continue holding the pilot knob in for an additional 30 seconds.

    from NY asked:
    October 21, 2013
    I am looking to buy a new set of 36" gas logs with a variable remote control. Can you please tell me the difference between the APK15 and APK17 valve control systems? The APK17 looks more compact, so I am inclined to go with that one. Is there any reason to go with the APK15 instead?
    1 Answer
    The APK17 is indeed a slimmer valve and is easier to hide within the fireplace. It only allows flame height adjustment from the remote. The valve itself does not have the provision. The APK15 is a larger valve, however it is also more robust and has proven to be the more reliable of the two models. The APK15 also allows you to manually adjust the flame height from the valve, as well as the remote.
