We offer gas logs from many different manufacturer's that come in a variety of styles. It is important to get the right size gas log set otherwise it may have issues operating or not fit altogether. There is a simple way to figure out roughly what size gas log set you will need for your fireplace, to start you will need to find your fireplace's opening width.
Once you have your fireplace's opening width you will need to decide on which pilot kit you are going to get. This is important because different pilot kits each require specific amounts of space which adds to the overall size of the gas log set. If you are interested in getting a standard safety pilot kit, subtract 8 inches from the front width of your fireplace and this will give you the size of the largest gas log set you are able to use. If you are going to get a millivolt pilot kit you will need to subtract 12 inches.
Deciding which gas fireplace logs to get can seem challenging, but with the right information it can be a breeze. You will find detailed specification sheets on all of our gas log products that show the minimum fireplace opening requirements along with other helpful information. Just remember that certain options can add extra width to your gas log set of choice, and to factor that in with your opening width. Most gas log sets require that your fireplace is at least 15" deep, any less than this and you may have to look into getting a reduced depth gas log set.
We provide many different options with our gas log kits. You’ll love these ultra-realistic gas logs and how they look in your firebox.

Finally it’s important to know what you’re looking for. For example, is your chimney still open? If so, you need a vented gas log set that is connected to a flue. Vent-free gas log sets are ideal for apartments and other places that may not have a vented fireplace. Vent-free gas logs can also be used in a vented fireplace but you do not have to open the flue. There are plenty of great choices to choose from!
Vented gas logs require a fireplace with a working chimney. They are also known to provide the most realistic flames and have a more authentic appearance compared to vent-free gas logs. Vented logs are often less cheaper than their ventless gas log counterparts and are much more flexible when it comes to rearranging the logs the way you want. You cannot rearrange the logs at all with vent-free logs. One main drawback of vented gas logs is that you will lose a lot of heat as it rises through the chimney, but even then they are still capable of providing warmth in your home.
We have many styles and sizes to fit your fireplace needs! Gas logs are perfect for bringing your gas fireplace a natural wood-burning feel. Vented gas logs are similar to burning wood and will definitely give you that natural feel!

These gas logs can use natural or liquid propane gas. There are many different styles and sizes to choose from.

Most of the time standard log set configurations will work fine for the end user, but in certain situations there may be limiting restrictions or other requirements that need to be met. Below we will explain the various kinds of log sets that are available and what their intended purposes are. It is important to understand what log set your specific fireplace requires.
Our see-thru sets are sized according to the approximate width of the log stacks or contemporary burners. A 24-inch match lit log set, for example, is no more than 24 inches wide at the front of the stack. Burner pans, valve kits, millivolt switches, and other add ons will add even more width to the set. If your fireplace is 24 inches wide, we do not recommend a 24-inch log stack, rather a shorter one so that you have natural space on either side. Height varies by gas log set size, as well as the type of burner you choose. All of these log stacks are designed to fit in a standard, up-to-code fireplace. The difference is that some have low profiles which could leave a large gap in a high fireplace. Tall stacks that fit in a standard fireplace might look too cramped.
