Do I Need an ANSI Certified Gas Log Set?In order to comply with local codes, some areas of the country require installation of ANSI certified gas log sets. While a vast majority of the country does not have this requirement, it is the responsibilty of the customer to determine whether the gas log set they install complies with local codes. We are aware of ANSI certified requirements in areas of California, New York, and Massachusetts. Be sure to check with your local city office or website before installing a gas log set.
Certification InformationIn order to provide increased safety to customers, companies submit their designs to independent testing agencies such as UL (Underwriters Laboratories) and CSA (Canadian Standard Association).
These labs test products to standards set by the ANSI (American National Standards Institute). ANSI determines safety standards for products worldwide.
The most important idea is that the product is tested to an 'ANSI Standard'. Whether the testing is done by UL, CSA, OMNI, RADCO or any other lab is at the discretion of the company submitting the product. All testing labs test products to the same standard.
In order for a gas log set to be 'ANSI Certified', the pilot valve must be factory installed.
