Full Description

Lugging logs in from the cold all winter, tending to a fire and cleaning out the fireplace are all things of the past with this Flint Hill log set! These exceptionally realistic logs are molded from Ceramic Fiber. Wood grain and bark detailing is then hand painted by the artisans at Empire. The matching vent free Contour burner provides 28,000 BTUs of supplemental heating power to quickly and efficiently heat your space. Surprisingly compact, they fit into fireboxes as shallow as 12 inches. The Empire gas log Contour burner gives you a consistent flame that can be variably adjusted. The Contour burner is ignited by means of a push-button Piezo ignition switch. This vent free burner is easily converted to a vented burner simply by opening the fireplace damper. For safety, an ODS (Oxygen Depletion System) will shut down the burner if the oxygen levels become unsafe. 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!


Empire offers a 5-year warranty on all burners, grates and ceramic logs, a 2-year warranty on valves and a 1-year warranty on accessories and parts.

  • Q.

    What are the main differences between Vented and Vent Free?

    • A.

      Once you determine what type of fireplace you have, there are two main things to think about when considering a vented or vent free log set. 1) Are you looking for heat? - Vented Systems are going to be more for looks. Since you will have to keep your damper completely open, most of your heat is escaping out of the chimney. - Vent Free systems are the opposite. With the damper closed all of the heat produced by the log set is contained inside of the firebox, then spills out into the room. 2) Are you concerned about looks? - Vented systems are the best looking when burning. Because the flames are allowed to touch the logs, they provide a more realistic looking when burning. - Vent Free the flame cannot come in contact with the logs. The flame comes through spaces between the logs, which provides a clean burn. Reply

  • Q.

    Why can’t I change the log positions on my vent-free log set?

    • A.

      Vent Free log systems are set up to not produce carbon monoxide. The way this is done is by not having the flame touch the logs. This provides a clean burn. The logs are basically like a puzzle, they will only fit together in one arrangement. If you move the configuration you can cause the flame to come into contact with the logs, which would in turn create carbon monoxide. Reply

gas logs

the gas log set was bought to replace an existing one and they are beautiful and working great. this company is also a great place to go if you need courteous service and a fair deal.

gas logs

The logs are great - my only concern is that I cannot reduce the heat - the knob that lower the flames does very little to change the size of the flame and heat generated by the logs. I cannot turn off the back flame and just have the front flame on which I would have preferred for my home since the living room is not that large.

Assessment of logs and customer service.

I purchased this set of logs for my small fireplace. The primary purpose of the logs is for emergency use during ice storms. They are in a 12' x 20 living room, and after turning on high setting,it is toasty warms in minutes, then I put it on the low setting and it maintains the temperature nicely. Overall, we are very pleased with the set, quality, looks,etc. I was also delighted with the level of customer service from Shoppers Choice Personnel, especially David in replacing a broken log promtly, and explaining the operation of the logs. Highly recommend this log set!


I am very pleased with this log set. Delivery was sooner than expected. Installation was easy(30 minutes) and instructions very plain. Very pleased with flame pattern and heat output. Controls are easy to operate. Nice fit in my small fireplace. Overall, very nice set and would recommend it for anyone needing a smaller log set.

Very Nice and Very Easy to Install

I replaced an existing vented set of logs with this set, and I really like the look of the logs and contour flames. Took maybe 45 minutes to get old set out and new set in...very easy. Highly recommend this log set for the price.
