You can’t spend money blindly on gas logs. Here are some important factors to consider while selecting a perfect gas log for your room. Check all of them and make a wise selection.
Select the right type of gas log for your room. There are two types of gas logs: vented and vent-free. Both have their own benefits. Vented gas logs deliver more realistic and natural-looking flames and you can install them in a functioning wood-burning fireplace. On the other hand, vent free gas logs come with more heat and you can install it in a particular fireplace only.
Check the material of the gas log before buying it. Mostly, it’s made of ceramic fiber to withstand high temperatures. Inside of the log, there should be steel reinforcement rods to enhance durability. These rods add more strength to it against heat and don’t let it bend or crack. Some gas logs are made of refractory cement. Such gas logs are extremely durable and remain in the real shape and color for a long time. These logs are more durable than ceramic fiber logs.
Check the controlling option of your selected gas log. There are multiple controlling options. Check them below and understand the mechanism to make a solid selection.
Manual Safety Pilot: It’s the safest system. You lit the gas log with a match or lighter. If the flame goes out, the internal safety system will quickly shut off the gas.
Match Lit Ignition: It’s the most affordable option for people with less purchasing power. You need to ignite the gas with a match or a lighter. It’s available in vented gas logs only.
Modified Safety Pilot Kits: You can control a gas log with remote control if it comes with a modified safety pilot kit. Remote operation is always safe for users.
Millivolt Valve: It works in the same way as an SPK (Safety Pilot Kits). However, it doesn’t contain a thermocouple. Instead of a thermocouple, a millivolt gas valve comes with a thermopile that creates a quick current by using a remote control.
Electronic Valve: It’s the latest system that lets you control the gas log by using a switch/remote control. You can fix the switch to the wall too. Mostly, it’s a battery-operated gas log.
Gas logs are available in different sizes for a small room, big hall, master bedroom, and study, etc. Determine a room and select the accurate size of the gas log according to the room size.
