Several major retailers sell glowing embers for gas fireplaces, including Lowe's and Home Depot. Customers can also purchase glowing embers for gas fireplaces at specialty stores, such as the eFireplaceStore.
Lowe's offers ProCom glowing embers that are for use on vented gas logs. These add a realistic, glowing look to a gas fireplace that is reminiscent of a wood-burning fireplace. Home Depot offers glowing embers from Emberglow that should never need replacement. To use these, fireplace owners put them under the grate in their unit. The Platinum Bright glowing embers from eFireplaceStore come with 5 pounds of ember material. Not only do they make the fire look more realistic, they also help reduce soot.
