To ascertain which logs will fit your box measuring is necessary. Clearance is critical. Every type of gas log burner system must remain a certain distance from the side walls of the fireplace in order to stay cool, which is referred to as “clearance”. The amount of clearance varies depending on the type of gas log burner and controls you select. When the clearance is not met, the gas valve can overheat and melt which will cause your log set to stop working…and can also create an unsafe condition. Although you might think the biggest logs that will fit into your fireplace will look the best, you must also consider how much space must be left on each side of the burner system in order for it to be safe. Over-sizing of gas logs is the #1 cause of failure of gas logs. The measurements needed are the front width from wall to wall, back wall width, depth and height.
