EXTREME WEATHER Your Friend The Gas Fireplace
November 2014--Buffalo gets 7' of snow in two days. Now flooding is the big threat.
December 2013--Eastern Ontario and Toronto's ice storm and homes are without power for two weeks.
January 1998--Eastern Ontario's ice storm, Ottawa is without power for two weeks. No power, no heat.
Gas fireplaces would save all. My fireplaces, great North American brands, Valor, Napoleon, Regency and Vermont Castings, all work without electricity. It is a bit of magic and one that would bail ALL of my clients out of the cold.
Gas fireplaces depend on underground gas lines that are can't be touched by storms or power interruptions. The heat from a pilot light, this small flame on all of Fireplace West's fireplaces, creates enough millivolts of power to hold the main gas line in your fireplace open and will let it run forever. Did you know that if your furnace quits in the middle of the night, a call for service will be answered by "do you have a gas fireplace?". If you say yes, they will come at their leisure as they know you have heat.
This fall, we are having a Canadian gas fireplace shortage because Toronto homeowners are buying them all up. They won't be caught again.
Take care of yourself. Fireplace West's fireplace installations start at $3400. Get ready. Be ready.
