Measuring for Gas Logs
You are interested in purchasing a new set of gas logs but are unsure where to begin? We can make it easy. First, we need to measure your firebox to determine what size of gas logs will fit. We want to make sure the logs fit in perspective to your firebox so it isn't too empty nor too cramped. It should look natural to the overall space. Using a tape measure, you will be taking four measurements. We won't worry too much about the accuracy so we can round to the nearest 1/4 inch. If you have fireplace doors, please open them.
Measure the firebox from end to end in the front. This is the first measurement. Use the nearest quarter inch. Next measure the back of the firebox. In most cases, the firebox will have a taper near the back. Now measure the height of the opening. You can use the viewing space as some fireboxes may be extend well past the fireplace doors or opening. We are only concerned about the opening height. Lastly, take a measurement of the depth. This is the space between the opening of the firebox or doors and the back of the fireplace. We have created a handy chart to record your measurements.
