|Q - How do I know what size gas logs I need for
A - Gas logs vary in sizes. However, this is a good rule of
thumb. Measure the width of the front opening of your fireplace.
(Average fireplace is 36 inches which would take a standard
24 inch log.) If your fireplace opening width is less than
36 inches then you would take an 18 inch log set. If your opening
is 36 to 42 inches you would need a 24 inch log set. If your
opening is more than 42 inches then a 30 inch log set may be
right for you however, a 24 inch set still looks good in some
larger fireplaces. This is all included in our estimate and
design service (which is free when you deal with us).
Q - Is it really necessary for me to get a remote control?
A - Excellent question. Most all of our sets (unless you
specifically ask to not have it) are remote control capable.
Why? Well here’s the thing – we have been doing
this for a long time. We know how people feel about this. People
would say “No I don’t care about some fancy remote
control” so we would given them a less expensive manual
set. One to two years later they would call telling us how
they were getting tired of bending down to light the fire every
time and that they wanted to add a remote. Problem is the only
way to do that is to buy an entire new set of logs. So our
solution, buy the set that is remote capable. You don’t
have to buy the remote now but at least it leaves that option
open for you later. And a final point on this matter, millivolt
means remote or switch capable. These sets do cost us a little
more but they are worth it. Many times customers would call
us and say that they saw the same log set that we sell for
the same price or less. We knew this was impossible! Turns
out the logs look the same however theirs were manual and ours
were millivolt! Buyer beware! Make sure that you are comparing
apples with apples.
