All gas log sets from Empire Comfort Systems are designed and tested to ANSI standards. Empire proudly manufactures their Gas Log sets in the USA!

Log Set Specifications:
Ceramic Fiber Log Sets are a light weight, realistic alternative to refractory concrete logs, and will begin to glow after the fire has been burning for about 15 minutes, giving the illusion of real logs burning in your fireplace. Please see below for videos and downloads.
Millivolt Ignition - The White Mountain Hearth Millivolt Ignition pilot can be turned on by a wall switch or a remote. The Millivolt system has a pilot light that stays on 24/7 like the Manual Ignition Systems and will use between 400 to 600 BTUs in a 24 hour period when not in use. The benefit are the Millivolt can be turned on manually if there is a power outage.
Intermittent Pilot (IP), Electric Ignition or IPI - The White Mountain Hearth Intermittent Pilot Ignition (IP) system is a fully electrical unit. The Pilot Light is electrically controlled by either a Wall Mounted Thermostat or a Thermostatic Remote Control. With ease and functionality, this is the most versatile option. These options do come equipped or an optional battery back up, in case there is a power outage. With all the advancements in the IP units, they typically need the most maintenance.
Note: All Maintenance should be conducted by a certified technician.
