Are gas logs toxic?

Gas logs are widely used to enhance the look and ambiance of an open-burning wood fireplace. Properly installed and operated, gas logs are not toxic.

Ensure the set of gas logs is installed by a certified professional from the NFI. They will:

1. Test burns the logs and make any necessary technical adjustments.

2. Check for any gas leaks at the supply line, gas valve, and burner.

3. Ensure the flames are realistic-looking. More yellow than blue.

4. Keep the flames from touching the logs. This can lead to a sooting issue that is difficult to clean up.

5. For safety reasons, install a damper clamp for vented gas log sets.

6. Ensure the remote control is set up and functioning correctly.

7. Thoroughly explain the correct operation and answer any questions regarding the gas logs.

Another point to consider: It always helps to strategically place a couple of carbon monoxide and smoke alarms in your home. You can also put a tic on your phone or calendar as a reminder to change the batteries regularly.
