Step By Step Guide To Buying Gas Logs

Gas log installation step by step purchasing guide

Step 1 – Choose Your Venting Option

If you are buying gas logs for your existing fireplace, check it to see which venting system you have in place. If you are buying gas logs for a new fireplace, consider the differences between vented and vent-free gas logs

Vented Gas Logs

  • Most realistic and natural-looking flame
  • Must be installed in a fully functioning wood-burning fireplace. 
  • Radiant heat delivers warmth into the room, similar to burning wood. 
  • Produces some soot when the flame touches the log. 

Vent-Free Gas Logs

  • Delivers more heat inside your home.
  • Must be installed in a fireplace approved for a vent-free log set.
  • Installation is subject to state and local codes. Some areas do not allow vent-free.

Step 2 – Determine The Size Of Your Logs

This simple measuring process will help you choose the size you need. 

  1. Measure the front width of your fireplace.
  2. Measure the width at the back of your fireplace. 
  3. Measure the depth from the front to the back of your fireplace. 
  4. Measure the height from the top to the bottom of the front of your fireplace. 
  5. Measure the height from the top to the bottom of the back of your fireplace. 
 

Step 3 – Choose How To Control The Gas Logs 

Match Light

This option is for natural gas only. There is no pilot, only the logs and the burner. Your fire is lighted by placing a match or lighter near the burner, then turning on the gas with your key valve. You control your flame height by using your key valve, which is normally located outside the fireplace either in the wall or floor. 

Manual Safety Pilot

This system has a safety pilot that is manually lighted and stays lit all the time. Also called a standing pilot, it is similar to a pilot found in a water heater. You can turn the burner on and off manually by reaching inside your fireplace and turning the control knob. You cannot operate this type of system with remote control, but you can upgrade later. 

Remote Control

Remote control systems include a remote pilot valve assembly. Depending on the remote option you select, you will have the ability to control certain functions of the log set from a remote control. Remote-controlled options include basic on/off control, as well as variable flame control height. 

Step 4 – Choose Natural Or Propane Gas

You may already have a gas line installed in your fireplace, in which case the gas you burn will be decided. If there isn’t a gas line, then you will need to decide what fuel type you would like to use.

I had a very positive experience with my fireplace replacement. Everything took 3 days in total, one less day than predicted. The team included Pepe, Mario, and Kevin. I primarily interacted with Pepe throughout the whole process, and he patiently explained everything along the way. He was easy to work with, answered all my questions, and his team was respectful of my home. I would strongly recommend Mad Hatter for all of your fireplace needs.

Highly recommend. Had an issue with wasps coming down my chimney. After getting it cleaned, I was told about electric fireplaces. Had one installed and now the chimney is capped off so no more wasps. The new fireplace works and looks great. It even runs without generating heat so I can run it all year.
