Real Frye Gas Logs: What a Fire is Meant to Be


The story of RH Peterson Company can be traced back to Southern California 65 years ago, when an engineer, Bob Peterson, was out enjoying dinner at a favorite Pasadena restaurant one evening with his family and realized that the owner and staff had been spending too much time trying to keep the fire burning in the restaurant’s large fireplace. Peterson quickly invented a prototype gas log set in his workshop and sold it to the owner of that restaurant and many others in the area. The modern day gas burning fireplace has evolved from these humble beginnings. After several years of innovative product enhancements, these gas log sets as well as many others are now sold under the name Real Fyre Gas Logs.

Real Fyre remains committed to manufacture the most beautiful, best made gas fire products so that customers can enjoy that unmatched beauty and comfort with family and friends in their homes for years to come. The company has expanded to providing the finest barbecues, fireplaces and outdoor products developing a reputation for superior quality in everything we make is hard-earned and widely recognized throughout our industry.

There are many reasons why you would chose a gas fires over a wood burning fire. Gas fires save money and are less harmful to the environment. They are visually stunning and provide a realistic fire that can rival wood-burning fires in appearance. They are very economical and are inexpensive to buy and install, costing about one fourth of what it costs to burn wood. Some gas fireplaces are more than 99 percent efficient. They have an unmatched convenience, as with the touch of a button your fireplace turns on or off. There’s no need to purchase, store and season wood, or clean up and dispose of messy ashes.

Because they don’t burn wood, gas fires prevent flying sparks – common with wood fires – that might burn a rug or cause other damage. They don’t create indoor particulate matter that is harmful to asthmatics and those with respiratory issues. And burning gas versus wood helps keep our air clean by eliminating harmful particulate matter in the air outside.

Real Fyre offers four categories of gas logs the vented gas log collection, vent-free gas log collection, contemporary and glass collection and direct vent collection. The vented collection offers a wide selection of the most beautiful looking gas fire products available, designed for externally vented fireplaces (chimneys).
