Vented Gas Logs FAQs:

Yes. Most vented log sets do soot. Since the flames touch the logs, soot will build up on them during the combustion process.

Soot on the logs just adds realism, but if you want to remove it, you can. A small soft bristle paint brush works well or vacuum with a soft brush attachment.

Log sets differ from one model number to another. Check your installation instructions for the venting requirements.

No. You can use vent-free gas logs but not vented logs. Vented logs require a working flue, the same as burning firewood.

If the pilot flame is still large enough to heat the tip of the thermocouple, then the thermocouple is burned out and needs to be replaced.

They should never need replacing unless they get wet. Should the embers or sand (if there is sand underneath them) get wet, then they need replacing.

No. Very few vented logs are certified for use with a blower. American Gas Log vented logs are not. However, if your fireplace has a built-in fan system, this can be used.

No. Vented and vent-free logs are different in many ways and require different certifications. Vented logs must always be vented.

Certain models will permit you to install a remote receiver. Please contact American Gas Log or your dealer for information for your specific model.
