Fuel Consumption and Cost to Operate (Natural Gas):
Calculations based on EIA Nationwide Average cost of natural gas at $1.368 per 100 Cubic in 2008 operating on highest setting. This may vary widely in your local area. Use the consumption figures to calculate your actual cost/hour based on the cost of your fuel. Calculations are based on burning your logs at the highest setting. Lower settings can reduce consumption up to 50% for log sets with adjustable flame features. Read more about How These Calculations are Performed!
- Consumption: 0.2 Therms or Ccf per Hour
- Cost to Operate: $0.27 per hour (USA average)
The best "Ceramic" logs you can buy!(ceramic logs reinforced with steel rods)
The ceramic logs will "LAST A LIFETIME". They are carefully hand crafted from Peterson\'s proprietary mixture of clay and reinforced with steel rods to guarantee less chipping and breaking. Because these logs are ceramic, they will radiate more heat into your room and will "Not Crack and Crumble" like other brands made from cement.

Every fireplace is different and determining the best size gas logs depends on several factors including the type of control you want, the dimensions of the fireplace and how it is constructed. Our Gas Log Experts know what to look for and will make sure you get the size that looks best and functions properly in your particular fireplace.
Ventless Gas Log BTU Calculator!
Ventless gas logs MUST NOT exceed a certain BTU rating based on the size of a room. The formula for calculating the maximum BTU allowed is: Room Width x Room Length x Ceiling Height x 20. You can use this tool below to perform the calculation. Find out why it is important to limit the BTU output of ventless gas logs based on the size of the room!Enter your ROOM DIMENSIONS:

Ventless Gas Log Warnings and Precautions!
The information below is not just limited to logs from R. H. Peterson, it is for ANY BRAND OR MODEL of ventless gas logs. Please read this information before you purchase ventless logs from any dealer.
You probably know better than to use Gasoline inside your home to clean things. This is not something that you learn by experience, it is something that you are taught at a young age by someone whom you trust. But you most likely do not know much about the safe operation of a ventless gas log set...or about the potential hazards that non-safe operation can create. It is also less likely that any other place that sells ventless gas logs is going to be so blatant and up front about these warnings. But our years of experience have taught us that it is best that you know about these things before you make your purchase rather than after you receive your log set and find it all spelled out clearly in your installation manual.
For Your Safety: The list of guidelines below are not just mere suggestions, they are MANDATORY for the safe operation of any ventless gas log. Failure to follow these guidelines can cause any ventless gas log set to operate improperly. When a ventless gas log does not operate properly, it can create a potential safety hazard resulting in physical harm or death. These hazards include (but are not limited to) production of excess carbon monoxide, excessive moisture or the possibility of explosion. Please be very aware that ventless gas logs are to be installed and used carefully. They are not an unattended "Turn it on and forget about it" kind of appliance. Precautions must be taken to ensure your safety!
If this all sounds to daunting, then you may want to consider Vented gas logs, which have far fewer complications.
THINGS YOU MUST DO...
- You Must: Install the log set in a solid fuel burning masonry fireplace (wood burning fireplace), UL-127 listed factory-build fireplace (prefab or zero clearance), or in a listed vent free firebox enclosure. NO exceptions!
- You Must: Check with your local building department to determine if ventless gas logs are allowed in your city
- You Must: Make sure the log set has been properly sized for the firebox in which it is to be installed.
- You Must: Have your log set installed by a professional.
- You Must: Have the operating gas pressure checked by a professional to ensure it falls within the minimum and maximum allowed pressure.
- You Must: Be sure the room in which the log set is to be installed qualifies as an unconfined space.
- You Must: Permanently close and seal any ash dumps or outside air ducts in the fireplace with a heat-resistant sealant.
- You Must: Have a fireplace screen in place during operation of the log set!
- You Must: Be sure the gas piping to the fireplace is sized to provide the minimum inlet pressure and capacity required (see owners manual)
- You Must: Inspect the product carefully to ensure all parts have been received in good condition.
- You Must: Be sure that the burner assembly, logs, ember bed, or embers are installed properly, carefully following the instructions given in the Owner's Manual. Improper installation will create operation problems and may create a safety hazard!
- You Must: Make sure the bottom logs are firmly seated on the burner and that the top logs are appropriately placed. Refer to the LOG PLACEMENT section in your main instructions.
- You Must: Limit the placement of lava granules, embers, or any other associated parts to those areas specified (see owners manual).
- You Must: Center the log set in the fireplace. In a solid fuel burning fireplace, place the log set forward while ensuring that no part of the set extends beyond the face of the fireplace.
- You Must: Either install a hood over your fireplace opening to meet the specified clearances to a mantel shelf, or burn your logs with the damper fully open!
- You Must: Make sure there are no drafts into or around the fireplace by turning off ceiling fans and floor fans and closing heating and air conditioning vents, returns, and outside air vents
THINGS YOU MUST NOT DO...
- Do NOT: Use ventless logs as a primary heat source!
- Do NOT: Burn ventless gas logs for extended periods of time (no more than 6 hours per day)!
- Do NOT: Use any type of heat circulating device designed to blow heat from the fire into your room!
- Do NOT: Seal the flue damper!
- Do NOT: Install the log set in a solid fuel burning fireplace until the firebox, damper and chimney have been thoroughly cleaned and inspected by an authorized service person (licensed chimney sweep).
- Do NOT: Install the log set unless the gas supply is the same type as the gas stated on the gas log set rating plate (Nat. or L.P.)
- Do NOT: Install the log set if the gas pressure to the fireplace does not meet the minimum required (see owners manual)
- Do NOT: Install the log set unless the minimum clearance to combustible materials are met or exceeded (see owners manual)
- Do NOT: Attach this log set to an unregulated propane tank or an unregulated high pressure natural gas system...this could cause an Explosion!
- Do NOT: Install the log set in high traffic areas or near drapes or other combustible materials as the high temperatures generated by the set may create a hazard!
- Do NOT: Install the log set if the operating gas pressure to the fireplace does not meet minimum required (see owners manual). Low pressure will keep the unit from operating properly (nuisance shut down, porr ignition).
- Do NOT: Add any additional logs, lava granules, embers, accessories, or any other foreign objects to the log set as this will cause sooting and high carbon monoxide levels. Accessories may be added in the firebox, but must not interfere with the burn of the log set. Granules are decorative and are to be placed on the floor of the fireplace only, not on the burner system or logs.
- Do NOT: Close glass fireplace doors when log set is in operation!
- Do NOT: Re-light your log set for at least ONE MINUTE after extinguishing the flame!

2 YEAR FREE EXTENDED WARRANTY PLAN - GAS LOGS (up to $100.00)
One of the advantages of buying your gas logs from the experts at Hansen Wholesale is our Extended Warranty. Although Peterson has the best warranty in the industry for gas logs, it does have it's limitations. So we make it better for you to buy from us by extending the warranty, particularly for things that are not usually covered for more than 90 days or a year.
This is an exciting new policy we created and launched on September 18th 2012. This plan applies to *Complete Gas Log Sets only purchased on or after September 18th 2012
Most of the R. H. Peterson gas logs we sell come with a manufacturers lifetime warranty for the logs, and up to 10 years on the burners. But the actual functional parts such as control valves, remote control transmitters and receivers only have a 1 year factory warranty, which is the industry standard. Although such components used by R. H. Peterson are the highest quality in the industry, there is always the potential for failure and replacement parts or repairs beyond the 1 year warranty period can be expensive. Gas Log manufacturers limit the warranty for these items to 1 year because they do not actually make these parts and have less control over their reliability. When you buy any complete R. H. Peterson gas log set from Hansen Wholesale, we automatically extend the warranty for ALL gas log components for an additional 2 years for a total warranty of 3 years instead of 1. We will cover the cost of the replacement parts up to $100 or 20% of the total price you paid for the complete log set, whichever is less. So not only will we make sure you get the lowest price for your R. H. Peterson gas log set, we'll also give you more peace of mind of with an additional 2 years of worry-free warranty coverage above and beyond what you would get anywhere else. Just another reason to buy your gas logs at Hansen Wholesale.
*A complete gas log set consists of both logs and a burner system. Purchases of logs only or burner kits only do not qualify for this plan. Limited to one warranty claim per gas log set.
