It can sometimes be difficult to get a wood fire burning, but Fireplace Doors Online has solved this conundrum for you with our collection of fire starters!

Gas log lighters can ignite a toasty blaze in no time - even if the power is out! With a simple connection to a professionally installed fuel line (natural gas or propane) and the turn of a valve key, gas is delivered into the pipe. Using a long-stemmed lighter, you can ignite the fuel as it escapes from the precision-drilled port holes and have your wood kindled in seconds! We have a great selection of stainless steel and cast iron gas log lighters, designed by top manufacturers in the fireplace industry, such as Dante and Blue Flame.

PLEASE NOTE:
Gas log lighters are not meant to be used as a decorative gas appliance. It is simply intended to ignite fireplace logs and should be shut off once your wood is burning.

The Pros & Cons of Using A Fireplace Log Lighter

 

The Pros & Cons of a fireplace log lighterIt's a satisfying feeling to see flames dance across fresh cut logs in your fireplace - especially if getting those logs lit was a quick and easy chore.  Those of us that burn wood, though, know that building a good fire can take time, patience, and a lot of kindling. Fireplace log lighters can be a convenient alternative to the classic fire starting practices. We've compiled a list of the pros and cons of log lighters to let you be the judge if one is right for you.

 

Hearthmaster Cast Iron Log LIghter

Pro #1: The Prep

No twisting, crumpling, and stuffing papers between logs.

No splitting slivers of wood from your logs for kindling.

No need to make little fire starters from dryer lint and candle wax. 

Con #1: The Prep

In order to have a log lighter in your wood burning fireplace, you'll need to install a gas line to your fireplace. A natural gas or liquid propane hard line will need to be installed by a certified gas technician, adding to your initial prep costs, along with the materials for the installation: gas line, elbows, nipples, valve, key, flange.

Pro #2: Starting Your Fire

Just set the logs on the wood grate over the log lighter, turn the key to open the gas line, toss in a lit match, and the fire lights around your logs. After the logs have caught on fire, turn the valve key to close the gas line, and enjoy the crackling wood fire before you.

Con #2: Starting Your Fire

As with any gas product, we must caution you to carefully follow the operating instructions. For your safety, ensure that the gas line is fully shut off when not in use.  A fireplace grate is needed to hold your logs above your fire starter, preventing the logs from damaging it.

Pro #3: Using Your Fire Starter Pipe

Lighting fires the old way could take a long time. Just when you'd think your fire was finally lit, it would fizzle out and you'd have to start over again. With a fireplace log lighter you'll get strong flames immediately that will easily catch your logs on fire.

Con #3: Using Your Fire Starter Pipe 

Misuse of this product - by using it as a gas burner instead of a fire starter, can cause permanent damage to a zero clearance fireplace. It is unsafe to use the log lighter as a fireplace burner. It is intended to only be used for a short period of time - creating the flames needed to fully light the logs in your fireplace.
