    The millivolt control will have a standing pilot and will have two terminals into which wiring from a wall switch or a remote receiver can be installed.

    I have a wood burning prefab fireplace in my home and want to switch to gas fire logs. I have been told I should use ventless logs, but continue to use my flue. What is your advice?
    1 Answers
    If you were to install ventless logs, there would be no reason to keep your flue open. These are, in fact, designed to be used with the damper closed. Some people might leave them cracked open for air circulation in basements or newer buildings with small square footage, but you will lose heat this way.

    I currently have a NG ventless fireplace that is about 15 yrs old. As I'm sure you've heard a thousand times, the unit emits an unpleasant odor that prevents us from using it. I have been reading recently that many new gas log sets are made with a catalytic converter system. Are any of the replacement log/burner sets you offer equipped with such a system.
    1 Answers
    Our recommendations will differ depending on if this is a ventless fireplace or simply a wood burning fireplace with ventless gas logs installed. If this is a fireplace, the only option will be complete replacement. If this is a gas log set, upgrading the system to a model with refractory ceramic logs may remedy the issue, so long as there are no pre-existing issues that will cause an odor with any ventless gas log set (high traffic area, ceiling fans or candles burning). With older, ceramic fiber logs, this lightweight, porous material will break down over time and hold a smell that will not go away unless the entire system is replaced. Also ventless gas hearth systems are not recommended for anyone who is sensitive to smell.

    What is the difference between vented and ventless gas logs/burners?
    1 Answers
    The difference between vented and vent free is efficiency. Vent free burners operate at an efficiency that allows them to only put off water vapor and carbon dioxide during combustion, so they can exhaust and draw combustion air from the room. Vented units can have a higher BTU output than vent free burners, but require venting which can cause heat loss. Vent free units are only meant to be used for 2-3 hours at a time as they put moisture into the air and can cause stuffiness in the room, while vented units can be run for as long as you would like.

    What is the difference between refractory log sets and ceramic fiber log sets? I'm looking at a Vail Premium 32" ventless fireplace. Which model would you recommend? What are the pros and cons between the 2 different types?
    1 Answers
    Refractory logs are superior to ceramic fiber logs as they do not break down over time unlike ceramic fiber logs. Secondly, ceramic fiber logs are much more fragile making cleaning and maintenance a delicate process. Refractory logs will continue to hold and radiate heat for some time after the burner has been extinguished similar to the side of a brick wall which has been exposed to the sun for the majority of the afternoon. If you are in search of a 32" fireplace, I would suggest utilizing a firebox, such as the Empire Breckenridge VFD32FB0L Deluxe Vent-Free Louvered Gas Firebox - 32" along with an 18" log set of your choosing. With a firebox and log set purchased separately, if for any reason down the line, the log set needs to be replaced and replacement components are no longer available, a replacement log set and burner could be installed. Whereas, if a vent free fireplace in which the burner and log set are proprietary to that fireplace, replacement components could be harder to come by at a much later time. Pairing a firebox and log set may be slightly more expensive on the front end, but is well worth it in the long run. Ceramic log sets have one "pro" which sets them apart from refractory logs. While the burner is in operation, the ceramic logs will commonly have a section of the log placed closely to the burner tube allowing the log to glow as if it were a true wood log.

    What would cause fumes to come off of a ventless log natural gas fireplace?
    1 Answers
    Most vent free gas log sets will release an initial burn off odor during the first 3 to 4 hours of operation. However, if the set continues to release a noticeable smell when operating, there is likely an issue with log placement. The log placement instructions should be reviewed and a visible check made to ensure that flames are not hitting any of the logs directly. It is also important to service a vent free set on a yearly basis. Accumulation of dust, lint, or pet dander into the assembly can partially clog the air intake, releasing an odor.

    We are looking at ventless gas logs for natural gas to replace some gas logs that we have had with propane for about 20 years. We will be hiring a plumber to convert our appliances to natural gas and wondered if there is anything special about installation that we need to worry about. With the plumber's help, should we be able to install them ourselves or do we need to hire someone to install them?
    1 Answers
    As long as the gas line is currently in position, changing fuels will not be an issue for a vent free log set. As you know, vent free systems cannot be converted, so installing the new natural gas burner will be fairly simple. The supplied gas line will connect to the existing pipe stub already in the fireplace. This is a job that your plumber could very easily handle.

    We are converting our fireplace from propane to natural gas but I'm not sure which pilot type to use. What are the differences between them? What would you suggest? Also, do natural gas logs put out a lot of heat? We have a ventless fireplace.
    1 Answers
    Propane and natural gas log assemblies will produce the same BTU output, when looking at the output between the same models. Propane burners will have a smaller burner orifice, as propane gas has a higher BTU potential than natural gas. All pilot assemblies used with vent free logs are safe and have a built in shutdown system that will turn gas off to the valve if the pilot flame is lost for any reason. The most basic type of pilot is a manual pilot or what is commonly known as a "safety pilot". This system allows only manual control of the burner, with some systems offering 3 step flame height adjustment. A control knob is located on the burner assembly. Remote or millivolt pilot assemblies will allow you to control the unit from a light switch or remote control. There are also various other remote assemblies that allow flame height adjustment, in addition to the ability to control the unit from a remote.

    I have an original brick fireplace that I converted to a vent free natural gas log set from the home depot about 8 years ago during a second story add on to my house. I capped off the chimney right under the second story floor with a 1/2" thick steel plate and cement. Is there some sort of blower assembly I can add in to help distribute the heat? I would like to get rid of the little stand up fan I have on the side next to it to blow the heat away from the mantle because, without it, everything gets really hot. I have melted a few plastic holiday decorations.
    1 Answers
    While we do have grate heaters that can be used with vented logs, they are not intended for use with vent free log sets. The issue with using a blower with a vent free log set within a masonry fireplace is that even the slightest draft can cause wafting of the flames against the logs. This in turn causes some flame impingement, releasing CO and hydrocarbons into the air.

    Both vented and vent free logs are typically available in natural gas or propane fuels. I'm assuming that you currently have a vented set that is fueled by natural gas and want to convert to vent free. If this is correct, I will need to know the front width, rear width, depth, and height of your fireplace opening. This will help me to determine the proper size of set for your needs.

    My house originally had a coal-burning fireplace. It does not appear to have a damper or a lining. What is the best way to close off the top and bottom of the chimney so that a ventless log set can be used without introducing dampness into the chimney and losing heat up the chimney?
    1 Answers
    In your case, it may be best to use a vent free insert, as opposed to a vent free log set. The insert will be a completely sealed and self contained metal chassis, which will prevent any heat from escaping to the chimney. By code, if the fireplace has any sort of chimney, it cannot be sealed off when using vent free logs. While I have seen fireplaces sealed by use of a fabricated metal pan, this is technically not an acceptable solution.

    By your description, you can indeed purchase just a log grate and a set of refractory logs to be used in your fireplace. For outdoor applications, it is ideal to use a stainless steel grate, as it will last much longer in the humid outdoor air. .

    Being that vent free log sets emit much less heat than wood burning fireplaces do, a basic inspection to ensure that the fireplace, and chimney system are sound and safe would be sufficient to allow a vent free log set to be installed. Having professionals on site takes out a lot of guess work being that they can visually inspect and make needed repairs to the fireplace.

    Whether you have smoke alarms or carbon monoxide alarms going off, we recommend discontinuing the use of the ventless logs set until it can be serviced by a professional.

    from Dover, Tennessee asked:
    January 8, 2014
    What would cause ventless gas logs to put out a soot film on the front of the fireplace?
    1 Answers
    Because vent free logs pull combustion air from the room and then return the heated air back to the room, they can produce a bit of a film over time. If the sooting is occurring over a relatively short amount of time, it is likely that the air shutter in the gas log burner assembly is becoming clogged and needs to be cleaned out. If this component is clogged with dust, dirt, or spider webs, in can cause the fuel mixture to become unbalanced, leading to the release of soot.

    We do indeed offer vent free log sets that have an adjustable flame setting.

If you truly need heat from the log set at times, this would be the best option. However, if your fireplace has the ability to be vented, you may consider using a vented log set instead.

    This is actually a good question and one that comes up often. If the chimney does have a working damper and is in good shape, you have the choice of using a vented or vent free set. The damper can be closed down most of the way with a vent free set, allowing the heat to circulate in the room for greater efficiency. In the event that you would like to operate the set, without incurring the extra heat, the damper could be fully opened.

    1 Answers
    Because of the fairly steep taper that the interior of the B36 has, a set of logs such as the Real Fyre 20" Golden Oak Designer Ventless Natural Gas Logs Set with Safety Pilot Kit should be used. A 24 inch set would be too large. We do offer these sets with remote pilot assemblies and in LP fuel, if needed.

    My fireplace is 30" wide in the front and 24" in the back, but only 13" deep. I think at one time this was a wood burning fireplace just because the house was built in 1926. However, I'm not sure of this until I can borrow my friends little remote camera to poke up the vent. The vent, or opening, is only about 1.25" x 6". I don't know if this is even big enough to be considered vented or not. That is my question. Can I use a vented unit or do I need to get a ventless? I would like to be able to use a vented unit because of the cost and I want to be able to have a more realistic look plus generate heat! Can you give me some advice on this?

    Based on the dimensions of your fireplace and the flue opening, the fireplace was likely originally intended for coal burning. Because of the small size of the flue, a vented gas appliance should not be used, as it will release more gas byproducts than the small flue will be able to keep up with. If you are able to verify that the flue is in good condition and not blocked, a vent free set could be used. I recommend inspecting the chimney before proceeding further.

    Do the pilots stay lit on all of your ventless log sets? I am going to use this set infrequently and I am not sure about leaving the pilot lit all the time. Also, I'm not sure I want to leave the pilot on when I am away from home for a week at a time.

    Most of our ventless leg sets do indeed feature a standing pilot light. However, the sets that feature the Electronic Pilot Kit do not; these use a battery-operated ignition system that eliminates the standing pilot. You can use the search options on the left-hand side of this page to select "Electronic Remote Pilot" from the "Pilot Type" menu to see these log sets.

    I have a vent less gas log with remote that I bought at a local store. I don't like the noise from the pilot and the remote start eats batteries. I would like to buy something to fix it. A wall switch and an electric pilot would be great! What do you think?
    1 Answers
    While it may be possible to use a wall switch in place of the remote control, I will not be able to offer a solution to the pilot assembly. Vent free burners are constructed with the valve as an integral part of the assembly, due to safety reasons. As such, the valve cannot be separated or changed.

    I am looking to install propane gas logs into a working fireplace. Should I buy ventless gas logs or vent logs? I am going to keep the flue closed because I need to heat the home.
    1 Answers
    Your application will call for ventless logs to be used. This is the only type of set that can be safely used with the flue damper shut. They are also the superior choice for supplemental heating purposes, as vented logs are primarily for appearance and offer little supplemental heat.

    Can you insert ventless gas logs or insert into a wooden entertainment center made for electric inserts?
    1 Answers
    Unfortunately, no. The wooden entertainment centers are specifically tested and listed for use with electric fireplace inserts only. Gas inserts release a great deal of heat that requires them to have greater clearances to combustibles. As such, they can only be used with purpose built mantels or built into a surrounding wall enclosure.

    I currently have a vent-free fireplace and would like to upgrade my set to a remote/ thermostatically controlled set. The logs have been broken, so I just want a new set. The fireplace is a corner fireplace measuring 32" (front width), 26" (back width), 16" deep, and 30" high. Can you recommend a complete replacement set?
    1 Answers
    Based on your dimensions, one of our most popular vent free sets could be used. The set is the Real Fyre 24" Charred Frontier Oak Ventless Natural Gas Logs Set with On/Off Remote Pilot Kit. This set can be purchased with a thermostatic remote control that can be used to maintain the room temperature. It is important to note that this set is complete with the burner system and can be installed into a vent free firebox that does not have the burner system as an integral component. If your vent free firebox came with the burner as part of the unit, this set should not be used.

    I would like to add a gas ventless log to my fireplace. I have moved into a house which was built in the 1940's. The fireplace measures 20.5" in front, 18.5" in the back, and 9" wide. There is a copper pipe with a red on off knob coming up from the floor of the fireplace. Can you help me?
    1 Answers
    Based on the dimensions of your fireplace, it was likely constructed as a coal burning unit and will allow a very limited selection for gas logs. The smallest set that we carry is the Real Fyre 16" Valley Oak Ventless Natural Gas Logs Set with Safety Pilot Kit. The only issue with this set is that it requires 1 inch of additional depth over what you have. This may not necessarily be an issue if the fireplace has a hearth that will allow the very front of the log set to protrude onto. Another option would be to use vent free coal burner, such as the Rasmussen Vent-Free Natural Gas Burner with Realistic Coals. As you can see by the appearance, it is not meant to be used by itself. The burner should be placed into a decorative coal basket or used with a fender. Some coal burning fireplaces retained their original fenders and this could be used to conceal the burner, if your fireplace still has the fender.

    My ventless gas logs seem to be gassing off black soot. I recently painted and do not want to have the problem again. Any suggestions? We like heating the living room with our gas logs. They are in a vented fireplace, but we keep the vent closed.
    1 Answers
    Depending on the design and quality of the burner, some combustion byproducts can occur from vent free log sets. The best way to ensure a minimal amount of gassing is to verify the logs are set up in the manufacturer recommended configuration. Usually, mounting pins and grooves will only allow them to be set up a certain way, but flame should not be hitting the logs directly. Rather, it should wrap around them. Dust or lint that is drawn toward the logs can also cause the release of soot. It is important to service the log set annually to remove any dust or dirt that has built up inside the firebox and in the burner air intake.
