    Frequently Asked Questions

    What maintenance does a gas fireplace need?
    Because they emit carbon every time they’re turned on, it builds on the glass surface and interior walls. Over time this carbon turns into a whitish film that blocks the view of your fireplace and can interfere with proper combustion.
    Will I still be able to use my gas fireplace when the power is out?

    Most gas fireplaces operate on a pilot system that heats a thermocouple or thermopile that generates electricity to power the system. As long as there’s gas being supplied, it should operate without an external source of power.

    Can I burn wood in my gas fireplace if I want to?

    No. They are not intended for wood burning. Burning wood in a gas fireplace will lead to severe damage to the system.

    Why does my gas fireplace smell?

    A gas fireplace can produce a variety of smells. Each smell has a significantly different cause. Rotten egg smell is typically the smell of a gas leak. A “burnt dirt” smell could be dust burning off the surface of your fireplace. This smell is typical when it hasn’t been used or cleaned for an extended period of time. Whatever the case is, it’s always best to have a technician confirm there are no immediate hazards, and recommend the best course of action for solving the problem. A chimney cleaning and vent check can go a long way.

    Why does my pilot light keep going out?

    Pilot lights could be failing for several reasons. The most common reasons are a weak thermocouple and/or gas valve. A technician can confirm the reason

    How can we make our gas fireplace produce more heat?

    Most gas fireplaces allow you to adjust the flame range with either a thermostat or directly on the gas valve. You could also invest in a blower to push the heat produced throughout the room.

    What could have gone wrong?

    There are many possibilities, a quick test is to see if you could get your pilot light running. If you can not get a flame, check the gas supply or even the sparker. If pilot lights but does not hold, it could the thermocouple or the gas valve. In either case, your best bet is to hire a professional technician to assess the problem.
