GAS FIREPLACE INFORMATION

How we can help you get more warmth for less money with your gas fireplace, gas insert or gas log set.

ENJOY ENERGY SAVINGS

Today's high energy costs prompt wise homeowners to find energy-savings relief through alternative heat sources—such as gas fireplaces and gas log inserts—particularly during the cooler autumn and colder winter months. Your gas fireplace can help you enjoy energy savings through our regular fireplace tune-ups to ensure its peak performance gets the most out of your fuel dollars.

CONSIDER INSTALLING A BLOWER

 
Gas fireplaces create between 18,000-45,000 BTUs—enough heat to warm several rooms of your home, if the gas fireplace is properly maintained and serviced annually. If you don't already have one, consider letting us install a blower to help circulate the warm air more efficiently and to keep fireplace components cooler during operation. Without a blower, your gas fireplace is basically just a gas appliance. With a blower, you can turn down your furnace.
 
 
Improving your gas fireplace heating system efficiency is a simple, yet cost-effective energy-saving improvement.
 

EXPERIMENT WITH ZONE HEATING

 
On average, gas fireplaces cost approximately 16 to 32¢ an hour to burn, compared to a gas furnace, which costs approximately $1.20 to $1.40 an hour to run. You can see the potential for savings. Installers and utility companies agree that you may be able to recover the cost of a new gas fireplace insert in just two heating seasons when using them in a “zone heating” program in your home.
Fall and winter are excellent times to experiment with and learn the practice of zone heating. This involves turning your thermostat way down, as low as 58 degrees, and utilizing an alternative heat source to warm the portions of your house that you spend the most time in. The most promising alternative source of heat is, of course, your gas fireplace or gas log insert—which should not be confused with a gas log set. Inserts are usually “sealed” units that generate an incredible amount of heat, or are small furnaces that radiate heat from spun ceramic coals or logs.

KEEP YOUR GAS FIREPLACE, GAS INSERT OR GAS LOG SET MAINTAINED REGULARLY

Malfunctioning gas fireplaces, gas inserts and gas log sets may not operate efficiently and cost-effectively for a number of reasons, including poor maintenance; inefficient, faulty or time-worn components; improper combustion ratios; and improper venting and/or seal leaks, among other things. Poor efficiency results in higher energy bills and discomfort. Further, inefficient gas appliances often consume more than their fair share of household energy. We can help you find out for sure just how efficient your unit is operating.

GAS FIREPLACE/GAS INSERT/GAS LOG SET WARNING SIGNS

There are more, but these are the six most noticeable warning signs that your gas fireplace, gas log insert or gas log set is a troubled unit that is in need of service:
 
1) Soot build-up on anything
2) Foul or suspicious odor coming from unit**
3) Film, discoloration or etching on glass
 
4) Slow or no ignition when unit is turned on
5) Unit shuts itself off
6) Unit has no usage or service history*
 
 
* All major gas appliances, including gas fireplaces, should be serviced annually as recommended by all major gas fireplace product manufacturers. Gas fireplaces are gas-fueled appliances and, as such, can be dangerous—and even hazardous—if not handled properly and if not serviced regularly by a qualified technician.
** Carbon monoxide (CO) is an odorless, poisonous gas formed by a gas furnace or gas fireplace that's not operating properly. Symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning include headaches, dizziness, drowsiness, nausea and vomiting. If you suspect carbon monoxide poisoning, or if your carbon monoxide detector sounds an alarm, immediately evacuate the home and call 911 from another location. If you do notice a suspect odor coming from your gas fireplace, call a qualified service and repair technician promptly.
