It makes sense to regulate the temperature in the room with a thermostat, but central heating doesn’t provide the same cozy warmth as a gas fireplace. The wireless fireplace thermostat / remote control provides convenient gas fireplace thermostat control.
Many gas burners are operated with a remote control. In addition to an on / off switch, the remote usually has a manual mode and a thermostat mode. When using the fireplace in manual mode, set the temperature via the remote control and it will remain at that temperature until the fireplace is turned off.
- Step 1 - Get the right thermostat. The voltage required by the system can be found in the instructions for use.
- Step 2: Turn off the device.
- Step 3: Remove the old thermostat.
- Step 4: Install the new thermostat.
- Step 5: double check.
- Step 6: Replace the front bezel.
- Step 7: Power on.
Yes, it is possible to add a remote control to the gas log after it has been installed and the log is already equipped with a millivolt valve. You can even fully convert your gas block to variable flame control and thermostatic control.
Don’t forget to close the gas supply valve (Photo 1). If it remains lit, lightly press the valve button and turn it counterclockwise until the word ON is in position 6. Finally, turn on the ON / OFF switch (or wall switch or remote control) to light the fire.
How to replace a thermocouple
When the thermocouple is heated by the pilot light, it creates a very low electrical voltage (millivolts) which can be transmitted through a switch to a millivolt throttle (as opposed to a 24 volt throttle that is used with a conventional thermostat will turn on.
How to regulate the flame of a gas fireplace
The millivolt valve offers secure closure in the event of a gas supply or flame failure. The convenience of a wall switch or remote control in combination with a fixed pilot flame offers a safe way to ignite the main burner.
To light your gas fireplace, first open the control panel and rotate the valve so that the handle is parallel to the gas pipe to allow gas to flow into your fireplace. Then move the control knob to the pilot position.
Leaving the gas keeps this connection out of the pipes. Keeping the lights on also prevents moisture from entering the device, preventing corrosion. As you can see, for the most part, it’s probably best to turn off your gas fireplace lights during the months when you don’t need heat.
Ventilated Gas Fireplaces
Gas fireplaces are more popular than ever and for good reason. They are much safer than fireplaces, but also much cleaner and better for the environment. Modern gas fireplaces can look, sound and even smell like real fireplaces.
There is no danger of a gas fireplace running continuously during a power outage. The fan that normally works with the fireplace needs electricity to work. You can leave your gas fireplace on until you are warm and happy without worrying about the unit overheating.
Yes, gas fireplaces are a possible cause of carbon monoxide poisoning. However, poorly maintained or ventilated gas fires can cause incomplete combustion, release of carbon monoxide and suspension of this toxic gas, putting people at risk of carbon monoxide poisoning.
Most fireplace inserts can be used continuously as long as the glass front is sealed. Most direct air gas fires can be used permanently as long as the glass front is sealed. Unventilated: An unventilated gas fireplace works the same way as a stove and provides an unventilated secondary heat source.
Most gas fires have a self-generating millivolt system that uses a thermopile. If your gas fireplace has a fan or fans, it will need electricity, but you should be able to generate heat without it. Many models have a spare battery that can be used to illuminate the night light in the event of a power failure.
