A home produces gas or propane to produce heat. Somehow, a home is similar to a gas boiler, but uses slightly different systems and has different objectives. Each gas fireplace can be separated into basic parts.
The ignition system of a gas fireplace is the laying of gas and ensures that the gas is turned on when he enters the chimney. This system is usually pilot. An electric ignition creates a spark that ignites a small amount of gas entering the home. This gas fire ignites the gas that is inside the fireplace. Turn off the pilot light in the warm seasons to save money.
