Selecting Gas Log Size
Making sure you get the right size gas log for your fireplace is not a difficult task, though it is an important one. With so many different gas logs available, the chances of purchasing a gas log that is not ideal for your fireplace are fairly high if you rely on guesswork. However, with some simple measurements, you can rest assured that the gas log you choose is sized perfectly for your fireplace.
Determining Gas Log Size
Finding the correct log size isn't that difficult. Simply follow these steps:
- Measure across the front of your fireplace.
- Measure across the back of your fireplace.
- Use the Gas Log Size Calculator below.
Why Gas Log Size Is Important
It is possible for a gas log to fit inside your fireplace and still be the wrong size. Different gas logs have different requirements for clearance from fireplace side walls. For example, gas logs that come equipped with safety pilots require more clearance than other gas logs. Safety pilot gas logs need the extra air flow for the valve to function properly and to prevent overheating and possible melting. Measuring your fireplace before ordering gas logs not only ensures that you get the right gas log, but ensures the safety of you and your family.
