What is the difference between refractory log sets and ceramic fiber log sets?
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.

Can all of your ventless propane log sets be controlled electronically with the necessary adapter?
Only our remote-ready units can be controlled electronically. This would include both the variable flame sets and the on/off variety. The units listed as "Safety Pilot" can only be controlled manually at the log set.

What would cause fumes to come off of a ventless log natural gas fireplace?
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.

Can we have ventless logs in a traditional fireplace that has a flue that can be opened or will it require us to have a log set that requires venting?
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.

Do the pilots stay lit on all of your ventless log sets?
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.
