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