A well maintained gas fireplace creates between 18,000-45,000 BTUs and in some cases with newer models, even more—which is enough heat to warm multiple rooms of your home. If you don’t already have one, consider having a blower installed to help circulate the warm air more efficiently and to keep fireplace components cooler during operation. On average, gas fireplaces cost approximately 32¢ an hour to burn, compared to a gas furnace, which costs approximately $1.40 or more per/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 down low, 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, Gas space heater 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. Malfunctioning gas fireplaces, however, 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. As well, inefficient gas appliances often consume more than their fair share of household energy and pose a serious health concern from deadly Carbon-Monoxide build up in the house.
Remember, manufacturers and gas utility companies both recommend professional maintenance on an annual basis. Regularly scheduled service will enhance the life span of your gas fireplace or log set, save you money on costly repairs, provide peace of mind from leaks, and keep your unit burning efficiently and looking beautiful.
Improving heating-system efficiency is a simple and cost-effective energy saving improvement. Gas fireplaces, gas log inserts, gas log sets and gas space heaters need regular professional service by a qualified technician. Manufacturers and utility companies both recommend professional maintenance on an annual basis. At no time should you attempt to work on the unit yourself. DON'T PLAY WITH FIRE! Unless you are properly trained, all major gas appliances, including gas fireplaces, gas log inserts, gas log sets and gas space heaters should be serviced annually as recommended by all major product manufacturers. Gas fireplaces, gas log inserts, gas log sets and gas space heaters are gas-fueled appliances and, as such, can be dangerous—hazardous—and even deadly—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.
