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.

Appointment scheduling was very easy with Lynn! The technicians arrived early and laid down carpet to protect my flooring. They cleaned the fireplace, checked for gas leaks, and checked the chimney. Techs were tidy and professional. Good Job!

I recently had the pleasure of working with The Mad Hatter Service Company for a fireplace renovation, and I couldn’t be happier with the results. From start to finish, their team demonstrated professionalism, expertise, and exceptional service. Summary of the Process Showroom Assistance: Kevin and Derek in the showroom were incredibly helpful. They patiently answered all my questions about my existing fireplace and old cement-style gas logs. Their knowledge and guidance led me to upgrade to a new set of Peterson Real Fyre ceramic logs with a standing pilot. Now, with a simple turn of a knob, I can effortlessly light my gas logs. Thorough Inspection: The initial inspection revealed heat damage to my firebox, and it was clear that the flue pipe had not been correctly installed initially. The team promptly addressed these issues. Efficient and Clean Work: Juan Carlos, Oscar, Wilmer, and Kevin Garcia formed the service crew. They were not only efficient but also meticulous in their work. Throughout the process, they maintained cleanliness, using a vacuum to minimize dust. Even when they had to cut a large rectangular hole in the wall through sheetrock to access the back of the firebox, their attention to detail was impressive. Wall Restoration: After completing the necessary repairs, they replaced the sheetrock and expertly repainted the wall to match seamlessly. The result? The affected wall looks as good as new—no evidence of their work whatsoever. The New Fireplace They installed a stunning Peterson RealFyre 24" Charred Rugged Split Oak Gas Log Set with a G45 Triple T Burner, Lava Granules, and Platinum Bright Embers. Our new fireplace is nothing short of beautiful! Recommendation I wholeheartedly recommend The Mad Hatter Company and specifically commend Juan Carlos and his crew. If you’re seeking a professional job done with precision and cleanliness, look no further. Thank you, The Mad Hatter Service Company, for transforming our fireplace into a focal point of elegance and warmth 🌟🔥

We had our main fireplace cleaned and serviced recently, at which time Mad Hatter recommended replacing pipes, logs, and several pieces at top of chimney. They could not have been more impressive throughout the entire process, from explaining what needed to be done and why, to the multiple solutions offered, to the actual work itself. Every Mad Hatter team member we encountered - and there were many! - was friendly, professional, and knowledgeable. They completed the work on time and at the quoted cost, and everything looks great and works perfectly. Highly recommended - we’ll definitely never use anyone but Mad Hatter whenever we need anything related to the fireplaces in our home.
