Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
Gas Logs - Vented

Q: Do vented gas logs throw enough heat to heat a room 15X15? Does anyone know if the vented gas logs produce any more heat than a DuraFlame log?
A: Vented gas logs are tested to the American Gas Association Decorative Gas Standard. This means that no heat outputs may be used in advertising or brochures. Basically, vented gas logs produce the same amount of heat as the same fireplace does with a wood fire. If your fireplace normally produces a lot of heat, you will be pleased with the heat of gas logs. If, on the other hand, you fireplace puts out no heat with wood, you will also get no heat from gas logs. You should purchase vented gas logs as a decorative appliance. While they work well in an emergency situations, they are not an economical way of zone heating.

Q: I had gas logs installed in my fireplace about 5 years ago. Is it necessary to have the fireplace cleaned when you have gas logs. Do they create Creosote, or some other buildup that should be cleaned out every so often.
A: Your fireplace should have been cleaned when the gas logs were installed. Gas does not produce creosote. We do not know about real long term soot buildup with gas logs. But our retail stores shows no appreciable buildup with daily use after 18 years.

Q: How much gas do vented gas logs use?
A: The gas usage varies by set size. A 24" vented set on natural gas consumes 90,000 BTUs.

Q: Can vented logs be used for emergency heat?
A: Yes, they are a good source of emergency heat. It is not economical to try to use them for zone heating. However, in an emergency situation, the cost per hour is not as important.

Q: Is the Safety Pilot Kit (SPK) worth purchasing?
A: A safety pilot has a standing pilot. It is lit all the time. You do not need to match light. If the valve is turned on, it automatically lights the log set. You can not turn the valve on and let raw gas into the room. If you go with a manual valve. You turn on the valve and strike a match to light, like a gas grill. It is possible for the valve to be turned on without igniting the log set causing raw gas to come into the house.  Many areas require a safety pilot on natural gas.  It is required on propane gas nationwide.

Q: I've just purchased a 1904 home with 7 coal burning fireplaces. Is it possible to convert these to gas logs? From what I understand, wood is out of the question as the firebox is too small. All of the fireplaces are very decorative, and I wouldn't want to do any damage in the conversion.
A: If your fireplaces are safe to burn wood or coal, then gas logs can be added if you have the required depth.
