10. Using Your Gas Fireplace Efficiently

Purchasing an energy-efficient gas fireplace and properly locating and installing it are critical first steps in controlling your fireplace's operating costs and helping the environment. However, it is also important to use the fireplace wisely once it is installed. Follow these basic guidelines to maximize your fireplace's performance and minimize its energy consumption.

  • If you buy a unit with a pilot light, make sure that you turn off the pilot light during the summer and during the heating season when you are not frequently using your fireplace. Follow the manufacturer's instructions carefully when relighting.
  • When the fireplace is operating, turn down your home's main thermostat whenever possible.
  • If the fireplace has a thermostat, keep it at the lowest setting possible for an acceptable comfort level – turn it down when you are not using it (otherwise the thermostat could cycle the fireplace on even when the room is not being used or when no one is home).
  • Keep the glass clean to maximize radiant heat transfer.

Remember that a well-designed, energy-efficient gas fireplace, properly located and maintained, can give you hours of pleasure and comfort while reducing your overall heating bill.
