Vent Free Peterson Bedroom Fireplace I bought this Vent Free Log Fireplace for my sunroom since the last one I had just put out too much heat and you could not regulate the flame. The Valley Oak Vent Free Log set that I bought a month ago looks like a bad choice, you cannot regulate size of the flame, remote after only four starts has quite working and on/off switch for log set does not work. Flame comes from two opening and lava rocks, give off no amber glow. Only good thing that I can say about the unit is the pilot light still starts and does not require a lot of work once you've turned the gas on. Manual provided for this unit, as configured, has incorrect information on burner 12 valve operating information and pilot lighting instructions are not correct.
Update**** You are correct this burner does not offer a variable flame or an ember bed. The volcanic rock is strictly decrotive. If these features are important we recommend looking at a G9, G10, G18 or G19 burner. You might need to replace the batteries in your remote or re sync the the remote and receiver. ****
Best purchase ever! I had gas logs from other manufacturers in my previous 3 homes. They were always so difficult to light and the controls were always stubborn. I thought that must be the norm for all manual gas logs. For my current home, I purchased this set from my local gas light, grill and fireplace store. I am beyond thrilled with them! The quality of craftsmanship is obvious from the sturdy burner to the actual logs themselves. The starter lights the flame with ease and the control knob operates so smoothly. Don't even get me started on the glowing embers...so beautiful! I have nothing but rave reviews. Easy installation, user friendly, beauty, warmth, ambiance...what's not to love?
R16-G451619N looks and performs great! Log set and burner assembly arrived quickly - well packaged and protected. Installation was simple with all parts included in kit. The log set and glowing embers look beautiful when ignited, and we were surprised how much warmth/heat the unit provides. Good quality; good value; good performance - we're happy with our choice! Thanks!
Really Sleek The burner and glass really make the fireplace pop now and we love it. Know that the electronic box is large and will be seen in your fireplace. If you do not want this, go with match light and it will look better, but you lose the remote ability.
Needs Better Packaging for the logs Received our log set by Fedex in only 3 days, but one of the top logs arrived broken. We were still able to setup and install everything though. It took about 10 business days to get a replacement small log. The customer service was great, but just wish they packaged the logs better.
Lov the fireplace We bought this to replace our existing gas fireplace insert. Our original one did not have the electric ignition or remote. The fireplace arrived in tow boxes. One was the logs and the other was remote, burner, sand and glowing embers. Once installed the unit looked great and works great. Instructions was easy to follow and swap out was done quickly (had a professional install it since was gas).
love the addition we previously had the manual safety pilot and upgraded to this and it has been amazing. I know longer worry about my cats and the safety pilot and I can use the remote all the way form my kitchen.
thanks sales team I really knew nothing before wanting to buy this for my house. The sales team through a live chat helped steer me towards the G46 since I wanted a remote and could get the largest set possible. I am sure glad i didn't go with the G45 and only would have been abel to get a 18" set.
Beautiful Set, but the burner is only Ok We love the look of our set and usually keep it in the fireplace off just for aesthetics. The burner's manual knob is really close to the burner, so it is a little hard to turn on and off. Next time, we will get a remote system instead.
Love the Set! This was a great buy. The sales rep convinced me to get it because of the extra features with the remote and the extra heat it could produce. They were spot on and now can't wait until Winter to really start using it.
AWESOME!!!!! Our logs were delivered in 2 days of purchase. The setup was was pretty easy (especially since my daughter and son in law did all the work...lol) They are just so totally awesome!!!!Best thing I've bought in quite some time!!!
Poor craftsmanship We bought this set about 7 years ago when my father was sick. Our parents have always heated with propane stoves so we decided to fix up the old fireplace and install gas logs. It's a small grate so this was one of the few sets that would work. First, we discovered the main knob was installed backwards. Next, the remote control we purchased failed to ever work.(Incidentally, we had a professional do the installation.) Since then it has been a yearly struggle to get it lit even though it is used little and cleaned often. This year I have already disconnected and cleaned it 3 times and finally got it lit, but have little confidence it will function properly through the holiday season. I would recommend this unit to no one.
Real Look and No Mess Absolutely the most realistic logs and flame that I have seen. We have received a ton of compliments already. No smoke, no lingering smoke smell, no mess to clean up the next day.
Peterson Gas Vented Logs A++ Great product! Fairly easy to set up, the way our fireplace is set up we had to buy an extra kit with a flexible hose from lowes, but other than that it is very easy. It puts off heat if you are within 5' to 10' of the fireplace. However, if you are looking for an additional heat source, you should look at the vent free logs.
High quality log set This log set is about as basic as you can get. No pilot light no valves just a burner, rack, logs and a gas line. The reason I like it so much is the craftsmanship is top notch. They are as close to the real deal as you can get. The install was for the most part easy, my gas inlet was on the opposite side so I added a 12" flexible extension pipe. All and all I am very happy with this purchase.
