PRODUCT OVERVIEW

Transform your existing wood-burning fireplace in to a real flame gas-fueled fireplace and never worry about hauling wood, messy ashes or soot again.  This heater comes with the most realistic natural fire and highly detailed logs that glow like real wood.  Comes with eight ceramic logs, adding a realistic appearance to the high end appeal of the heater. The 48,000 BTU Vented 30” Gas Log heater is perfect for rooms of 1,200 square feet or more.  This vented unit requires no electricity, making it a great alternate heat source during power failures, while being energy efficient at all times.  The dual fuel version of this heater allows the professional installer to set up the unit for either propane or natural gas, with no manual switching required. Available in single fuel in some markets.

PRODUCT FEATURES

  • SAFETY PILOT

Equipped with an Oxygen Depletion Sensing (ODS) safety shutoff system. The ODS/pilot shuts off the heater if there is not enough fresh air.

  • AUTOMATIC IGNITION SYSTEM

This heater is equipped with a PCB controlled automatic ignition system. No AC power supply required. Battery should be periodically checked and replaced accordingly.

  • GAS OPTIONS CAPABLE (Dual Fuel Models Only) (Models that start with GLDF)

If you have the dual fuel model, your heater is equipped to operate on either propane or natural gas.  It will automatically identify your gas source without any manual changes, so no switching is necessary.

  • GAS Connection

Our gas logs have a built in regulator with a 3/8 inch male flare that requires a 3/8 inch female UNF connection to a 1/2 inch gas flex hose. The flex hose should be connected to a MINIMUM ½ inch gas line to ensure proper pressure. You must have a shut off valve installed on the gas line near the heater. Click HERE to purchase a kit that will provide the flex hose, fittings, and shut off valve all in one.

PROFESSIONAL INSTALLATION REQUIRED

Only a professional should install and replace gas piping, gas utilization equipment or accessories, repair and service the heater. The term “qualified agency” means any individual, firm, corporation, or company that either in person or through a representative is engaged in and is responsible for:

a) Installing, testing, or replacing gas piping or

b) Connecting, installing, testing, repairing, or servicing equipment; that is experienced in such work; that is familiar with all precautions required; and that has complied with all the requirement of the authority having jurisdiction.

We at Reecon strive to produce the highest quality Thermablaster heaters to warm our customers. We feel that a heater should look as good as it operates and work without a fuss. That is why we have developed our patent pending dual fuel heating system, which allows the use of either liquid propane or natural gas for some of our most popular products, without requiring any adjustments. Our product lines consist of vent free gas wall heaters, a direct vent gas wall heater line, kerosene and propane forced air heaters, electric industrial heaters, fireplace sets, as well as outdoor heating products. Through our innovative product design and customer first mentality, we strive to provide the best heaters for all needs, at a price that won’t break the bank.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What should I do with the embers and stones included with my log set?

All of our gas logs comes with glowing embers and stones. The large bag contains a stone replica made out of a foamy material which you can place around the burner. The smaller bag are glowing embers that can be placed on top of the very front burner to get a true glowing ash experience. These are non-consuming, so they can be lit and re-used many times. Keep in mind, the stones and glowing embers are intended for decoration and are meant to be placed as the customer sees fit as a personal touch. If you would like further guidance on the placement, please reach out to us to discuss further at 877-670-8428 or service@thermablaster.com.

How do I adjust the Air Door for natural gas?

The air door is located on the bottom of the log set heater, so you will need to flip it over.  We recommend laying a cloth down so that the metal of the burner does not rub on the floor.  Also, you will need to remove the log grate first to free the heater, allowing it to be flipped over.  Once done, you will want to look for an oval shaped cover that has two screws.  You will unscrew this door, revealing a silver cylinder shaped part that has a single screw, at first facing towards Liquid Propane (LP).  Loosen that screw, then with your screw driver still contacting the screw, slide/rotate the cylinder towards the Natural Gas (NG) side until it cannot slide any further.  Once done, you will tighten the screw on the cylinder, then seal the air door cover again. The flame will now be properly adjusted for NG.

Placement of Glowing Ember and Stones.

All of our Gas Log Sets come with two bags with decorative stones and embers.

The large bag contains a simulation of stones made out of a foamy material, which you can place on the burner.

The smaller bag contains a material very similar to cotton. These are glowing embers.

How to switch the Air Door from Propane to Natural Gas

Setting the Air Door to the appropriate gas type being supplied to the log set is important, as it improves the color and appearance of the flame. The Air Door is located on the bottom of the log set heater. So, you will need to flip it over. I recommend laying a cloth down so that the metal of the burner does not rub on the floor. You will want to look for an oval shaped cover that has two screws.

You will unscrew this door, revealing a silver cylinder shaped part that has a single screw. The unit comes preset for Propane, so at first, the screw will be facing towards LP (Liquid Propane).

Loosen this screw.

Then, with your screwdriver still contacting the screw, slide/rotate the cylinder towards the NG (Natural Gas) side, until it cannot slide any further.

Once done, you will tighten the screw on the cylinder, then seal the air shutter cover again.
