Want to know how to install gas logs? There are several reasons why you may want to update your existing gas logs or convert your firebox to a gas log application. Newer logs can improve the appearance of your fireplace, provide more heat throughout the winter, and reduce the time and money you spend dealing with a wood burning fireplace. Many modern gas log sets come with a variety of temperature and ambiance controls, and even offer a thermostatic remote!
If your wood burning fireplace hasn’t been upgraded for gas burning logs, you’ll need to have a gas line installed prior to installing a new gas log set. For the safety for your family, call a professional to install the gas line.
The below instructions are general to most gas log installations, but please be sure to carefully read your product’s installation manual. It is important to carefully follow the instructions provided with the gas log set you purchased.
Note: these are instructions for removing gas logs from the firebox. If you were previously using the fireplace for a wood burning application, skip to step 5.
