Evening Fyre Charred

Description: The Evening Fyre ventless gas logs from R. H. Peterson are some of the most realistic vent free logs ever made. They produce a more natural looking fire with more yellow than blue flame, and have an intense bed of glowing embers.

Realistic Logs: The logs themselves have a very rustic and natural look to them having been created from hand sculpted originals by artists at the Peteron factory. Each log set is individually hand painted to acheive the most realism possible

Realistic Flame: One of the most common complaints about vent free gas logs is the unrealistic blue looking flame that they normally create. Peterson has addressed this issue and developed a special innovative G18 advanced series burner system that produces a much more enjoyable flame pattern with more yellow in it while still meeting the strict ANSI certification standard required for the best clean burning ventless logs.

Ample Heat Output: If heat is your main concern, the Evening Fyre logs surpass most other ventless logs as well when it comes to warming you up. With a higher than average BTU ratings, nearly 100% of that heat stays in your you will be more than cozy with any one of the Evening Fyre ventless log sets burning in your fireplace.

BTU Ratings

16" to 30" Standard Models = 36,000 BTUs
16" & 18" See Thru Models = 38,000 BTUs
24" See Thru Models = 40,000 BTUs

State of the Are Safety: Safety is always a big concern with ventless gas appliances, because if something ever goes wrong, you do not want to be left with an appliance that starts generating carbon monoxide or depleting the oxygen in your home. R. H. Peterson uses the latest technology to eliminate the possiblity of such issues such as a hyper-sensative ODS (oxygen depletion system) that will turn the logs off if it detects low oxygen levels in the room. The unit will also not operate if for some reason it begins producing an excessive amount of heat.

The Smell: One of the biggest complaints we hear about venltess gas logs is that they generate a smell that some people simply do not like. Some people equate the smell to that of burning kerosene. Although it is foolish for any manufacturer of ventless products to claim that their logs do not generate any smell (because they all do to some degree), we have less complaints from customers who have purchased the Evening Fyre logs than any other Vent Free gas log we have ever sold.

Convenience: The special G18 burner system comes with several control options that will make operating the logs more convenient or enjoyable. We suggest that you call us so we can discuss your choices in more detail, but basically, you can choose between the following control systems:

  • G18 Manual On/Off Knob
  • G18-12 Basic On/Off Remote
  • G18-15 Variable Flame Remote
  • G18-01V Electronic Ignition Remote w/Variable Flame

Sizes: The Evening Fyre logs come in 16", 18" 24" and 30" sizes for standard single sided fireplaces and 16", 18" and 24" sizes for see thru fireplaces.

What size do I choose? Basic rule of thumb...allow at least 4" of space between each side wall of your fireplace and the end of the logs. So, your logs should be at least 8" smaller than the width in the "Middle" of your fireplace (which is where the logs will sit). If you size your logs too big, the system will continually shut itself down automatically as it becomes too hot (which will become very annoying). Constant overheating will eventually damage the controls or gas valve...which can lead to very costly repairs. Although the G18 burner system is more rugged than most other gas burners, it is still prone to failure if you do not make sure you leave the 4" of space as required.

Call us and we will help you make sure you order the right size!

If you are looking for the very best vent-free gas log, either as a heater or just to enjoy your fireplace, then the Peterson Evening Fyre Series can't be beat.

    1. How large in diameter will the vent hose need to be for this type of unit?...Thanks, Frank

    Answer: I am assuming that you are referring to the size of the chimney. This gas log is designed to be installed in an existing wood burning fireplace that is capable of burning wood. If you do not already have a wood burning fireplace, then you cannot install this gas log without one. With that said, the minimum required vent depends on the height of the chimney. Please refer to this chart copied from the installation manual for specifics:

  2. Question #9526 - Posted: 12/29/2016 9:05:21 PM

    Gas Logs Question

    I have a gas burning fireplace with a broken log. It was originally a wood-burning fireplace built in the early 1960s. It has a damper which is always open when burning. The fireplace was converted professionally to gas sometime before 2000. I converted it to remote-control lighting in 2010 using a reputable firm. Sometime later, one of the logs was dropped and cracked in half. It is held together by internal wires. I would like to replace one log rather than the entire set. Possible?

    Answer: It is possible, but that depends on the type of gas log set you have. If you can email us a picture of your gas logs, maybe we can find what you need. Email pictures to:

  3. Question #9525 - Posted: 12/29/2016 8:58:26 PM

    Gas Logs Question

    I have a classic fireplace 26" in the back, 36" in the front and 26" depth. I live in a two story house built in 1935. The furnace broke and needs to be replaced. I'm looking for something to install in my fireplace to warm up the living room. I live in California so it has to be vented. What do you recommend to keep my room the warmest it can be? log set or would an insert be better?

    Answer: A vented gas log is not going to provide very much warmth for your room. Since you cannot install a ventless gas log in California, you are left with the option of installing a gas insert. I would suggest taking a look at the Real Fyre Direct Vent gas insert.

  4. Question #9524 - Posted: 12/29/2016 8:51:36 PM

    Gas Logs Question

    i live in a 100 year old house and my fireplace was for coal and has a metal firebox. i have burned wood in it until last year, until we realized there was some leakage of smoke from the chimney upstairs. Would it be safe to use vented gas logs? Would we need to line the chimney like we would need to if we continued burning wood?

    Answer: Burning a vented gas log produces smoke just like burning real wood, so yes, you would have to reline or repair the chimney. I would suggest considering a ventless gas log so do not have to worry about smoke.

  5. Question #9523 - Posted: 12/29/2016 8:45:42 PM

    Gas Logs Question

    what size and kind can I put in a woodstove "MORE HEAT" that has a door 20 BY 8.5 FIREBOX 28 BY 18 AND IS 12 INCHE DEEP and will they warm the stove enough to product heat with the fan.

    Answer: Unfortunately, you cannot install gas logs in a wood stove. Wood stoves are designed to operate with much lower draft than gas logs and the venting does not meet the minimum venting diameter. Even more, air tight wood stoves are designed to be burned with the doors closed, which is a definite no no when it comes to burning gas logs since they must be burned with the doors opened. There are other reasons why gas logs will not work in a stove, but I will not belabor that here. For more details, read more about Where Gas Logs Can Be Installed.

  6. Question #9522 - Posted: 12/29/2016 7:59:50 PM

    Gas Logs Question

    I have a 24" peterson gas log set. The gas line in the fireplace is slightly larger than the connection for flex tube that leads to the gas burner. Can I add a smaller fitting to attach to the line leading to the burner?

    Answer: That should not be a problem unless the incoming gas pressure is higher than allowed by the installation manual, so you may want to check that.

  7. Question #9521 - Posted: 12/29/2016 7:53:16 PM

    Gas Logs Question

    I occasionally turn our ceiling fan on low with the blades drawing the air upward while using our ventless gas logs. Our installation manual says a ceiling fan should not be used when the ventless logs are on. The flame of the gass logs appears to be unaffected. Is there a problem in having a ceiling fan on at the same time as the ventless gas logs? Thank you.

    Answer: Running a ceiling fan to destratify the air in your room makes sense from a heating efficiency/conservation standpoint, so I understand why you are asking your question. The responsible answer is that the owners manual says not to run your fan when you are operating your ventless gas log, so we cannot tell you that it is OK to do so. With that said, drafts can certainly cause ventless gas logs to NOT burn correctly and start producing toxic odorless Carbon Monoxide. It is safer for the manufacturer to tell you not to run your fan at all in order to avoid a potentially hazardous outcome rather than suggest that you can run it on a low speed in reverse with no ill effect. They cannot test the actual impact of doing so in your particular room. Their ultimate concern is to prevent any draft from affecting the flame. Whether you decide to follow the instructions is ultimately your decision...I will leave it at that.

  8. Question #9520 - Posted: 12/29/2016 7:31:40 PM

    Gas Logs Question

    I do not really need the heat, and I have a fireplace already,but, the damper is either all the way open or completely closed. can I get that fixed so i can have it open part of the way so all the hot air does not go up the chimney thereby kind of making it silly to have one

    Answer: Technically, a vented gas log is supposed to be burned with the damper completely open. Plus, you cannot ever completely close the damper just in case there is a gas leak, so there is a clamp that is included with the burner system that gets attached to the damper to prevent it from ever closing completely. So if you do not really need the heat, then the way your damper operates is sufficient for a vented gas log. Whether you close the damper slightly to preserve some of the heat will not make much difference, you will get most of the heat from a vented gas log radiated into the room from the ceramic in the logs themselves. If you are really concerned about getting heat (which you say you are not), then you should consider buying a ventless gas log.

  9. Question #9519 - Posted: 12/29/2016 7:02:36 PM

    Gas Logs Question

    Question - Are there burners or logs that are better for use with propane to achieve the best flame presentation? Currently my propane flame in my FP is not as robust as I would like. Just curious if there are options that are better for propane specifically.

    Answer: Whether you are burning natural gas or liquid propane, each type of burner is configured for optimal performance for the gas you are using. So you would need to make sure you order a burner system for Propane gas, otherwise it will not perform properly. With that said, if you want the most robust flame, we would recommend either the G4 or G45 burners since they operate at the highest BTU (the most flame). However, neither of these may not be the best choice for your particular fireplace depending on the type of fireplace you have and the dimensions. Please send us some pictures of your current setup so we can see what you have and make further recommendations. Email pictures to:

  10. Question #9518 - Posted: 12/29/2016 6:53:51 PM

    Gas Logs Question

    Where do I find a remote control for my gas logs? And how much?

    Answer: Gas log remote controls are not universal in design. They are made as a transmitter and receiver combination, the receiver usually a built-in component of the gas log valve and burner system. So if you have an existing gas log with a remote and you are looking to replace a remote that is no longer working, you are going to need to contact the manufacturer of the gas log system you own and see if they can supply you with a replacement remote. If you are wanting to add a remote control to an existing gas log, that is a different story. In most cases, you will need to replace the entire burner system with one that is remote capable. Replacing the burner system may also require you to replace the logs since not all logs are compatible with all burners. If you email us some pictures of your fireplace we may be able to offer more direct advice. Send your pictures to: just give us a call at: 1-800-201-1193.
