Product Overview

Napoleon GL30E Vented Gas Log Set, 30-Inch offers the perfect solution to replace your old wood burning fireplace. This 30" gas log set features a unique and efficient infrared burner that radiates heat into the room for additional warmth and increased energy efficiency. The 100% electronic ignition requires no electricity or standing pilot for convenience and simplicity, and features 50% flame/heat adjustment for maximum comfort. This kit comes packaged as one complete system for easy installation, and includes the solid cast iron andirons & grate, large charcoal embers, and 5 lbs. of lava rock necessary for installation. Available in both natural gas and propane, the Napoleon GL30E is as easy to install as it is to use. Stop putting up with the hassle of an inefficient wood burning fireplace and instead, enjoy a beautiful roaring fire with just the flip of a switch - it's also set up and ready to be used with a remote control for added convenience.

The GL30E not only saves you hassle, but saves you money! It's much less expensive than purchasing and installing a gas insert fireplace - plus it's a much more realistic "wood fire" experience with a gas log set. The GL30E installs into an existing opening with a chimney/vent, with no major renovations needed - and results in a tall & realistic flame presentation. What's more, the ceramic log set will continue to heat even after being turned off until the logs have cooled - resulting in great energy savings.

Vented vs. Vent-Free

Vent type refers to how the fuel emissions are managed, your selection should be based on they type of firebox in your home and ensuring it meets your local codes.


  • Most popular option for gas logs
  • Gas logs must be used in a firebox with a working chimney flue
  • Can be less efficient as a heat source because of the open chimney


  • Can be used in any approved firebox - with or without a flue
  • Very efficient energy source as no heat is lost through the chimney
  • Requires an oxygen depletion sensor to safely monitor gas emissions
  • Some states do not allow vent-free units - check your local codes

Gas Supply

For gas log sets, burners will be supplied from the same gas that supplies the rest of your home.

Natural Gas

  • Most common gas type for gas logs
  • Almost all homes in urban/suburban developments will have access to natural gas
  • Natural gas does not sink, which helps avoid the build-up of gas on the fireplace floor


  • More common for rural homes
  • Often runs off of a large stand alone propane tank
  • Propane is heavier than air and will settle on the fireplace floor - a reason why most manufacturers require the use of a safety pilot kit to help burn excess gas before it settles

Choosing Gas Log Size

Know your fireplace dimensions - Measure front width, back width, the depth and the height of your firebox.

Before You Begin:

  • Take clearances into account to avoid any overheating of combustibles
  • Be sure to leave room on the sides for a valve/remote system if using them
  • Gas log sets can range anywhere from 12 to 96 inches, but most common sizes range from 18 to 30 inches

Looking For a Custom Size?

  • Many brands offer the ability to create custom logs/burners to fit any firebox
  • Usually standard sized log sets will fit nearly any firebox but some fireboxes are unique

Ignition and Controls

Ignition/controls refer to how the gas log set is started.

Match Light

  • Most basic and inexpensive ignition method
  • Manually open your gas valve and light the burner with a lighter or match
  • Flame height can be easily adjusted
  • Very reliable - all mechanical parts (nothing should ever break)

Manual Safety Pilot

  • A pilot system allows convenient ignition by having an open flame source that ignites the main burner when the gas valve is opened
  • Features a standing pilot (the pilot light will stay lit at all times)
  • Often times can be paired with a remote, wall switch, or thermostat

Electronic Ignition

  • Similar to a manual safety pilot but allows the pilot to be lit automatically
  • The pilot can be standing or intermittent (shut-off between uses)
  • More energy efficient by shutting off the pilot in between uses
  • Can be paired with a remote control, wall switch, or thermostat

Outdoor vs. Indoor

Because of their ceramic construction, many log sets can be used indoors or outdoors - with the proper considerations.

Indoor Log Sets

  • Can use black steel or stainless steel burners with confidence
  • All safety pilot options are able to be used

Outdoor Log Sets

  • Be sure to use a stainless steel burner to withstand the elements
  • Safety pilot kits may not be an option if you can't protect them from weather
  • Match light is the most reliable option

Log Set Profiles

There are two types of log styles - one-sided and two-sided

One Sided Gas Log Sets

  • For installation in a traditional fireplace with only one viewing angle
  • Most common log set option - the logs are designed with this profile in mind

Two Sided Gas Log Sets

  • Also referred to as "see through", "dual face", or even "peninsula" style log sets
  • These logs are designed to have multiple viewing angles - either two sided or three sided in some cases
  • Very contemporary option to join two rooms together with one fire feature
  • Minimum Opening Dimensions - 34" x 14" x 22" (Width x Depth x Height)
  • Log Set Dimensions - 30" x 13" x 16" (Width x Depth x Height)
