Then, Determine how you want to start and control your gas logs
Match Light (Good)
This is the most basic lighting method. Match Light gas log burners are for natural gas only. There is no pilot, only the logs and burner. You light your fire by placing a match or lighter near the burner and then turning on the gas with your key valve. You can control your flame height by using your key valve which is normally located outside the fireplace either in the wall or floor.
Manual Safety Pilot (Better)
This type of system has a safety pilot that is manually lit and stays lit all the time. Also called a standing pilot, it is similar to a pilot found in a hot water heater. You can turn the burner on and off manually by reaching inside your fireplace and turning the control knob. You cannot operate this type of system with a remote control, however, you can upgrade at a later date.
Remote Control (Best)
This type of system includes a remote pilot valve assembly. Depending on the manufacturer and remote option you select, you will have the ability to control certain functions of the log set from a remote control. Remote controlled options include basic on/off control as well as variable flame height control.
