Must Have Accessories For Gas Logs

Gas log sets generally come complete with embers, logs, and either sand for vented natural gas sets or vermiculite for vented propane sets. The sand or vermiculite is used to spread the flame to create a more realistic burn while the embers are there to add the glow of a real ember bed without the mess. Over time, these items may need to be replaced.
