I wanted to make a fire in the gas fireplace in our den last week.
It has been the coldest, rainiest Spring in history around here, & so I was thinking about how cozy & fun it would be to have a fire & to sit down in my cozy reading chair by the fire while I sipped on a glass of wine.
Well, when I went to turn on the fireplace, nothing happened. I flipped the switch on the side of the fireplace many times, however that didn’t help. I wasn’t sure what to do, however it scared me a little bit because I am scared of the gas that feeds into the fireplace. I am consistently terrified that my gas fireplace is going to blow up 1 afternoon & destroy my house or something. I guess that it’s absolutely never going to happen, & even my Heating plus Air Conditioning supplier told me that it has a lot of built in safety protocols, but I still consistently worry about things love that. Anyway, because I’m such a chicken about stuff love that, I called my Heating plus Air Conditioning supplier immediately to get their advice. They told me that whenever the pilot light goes out on a gas fireplace, there’s usually only a reason to be worried if the gas flow hasn’t been stopped, however she told me that usually, a pilot light in a fireplace goes off because there’s a failure in the gas supply. I didn’t odor any gas, & so they said that occasions were that was the case. She told me that if I was too scared to check it, they could do an emergency Heating plus Air Conditioning call & send someone out, but of course, I went outside & waited for the Heating plus Air Conditioning truck to get there!
