Turn Off Gas Fireplace Pilot

Mantel Decorations 300x225 Save Money   Turn Off Gas Fireplace PilotWe’re all looking for ways to save money this winter. One sure fire way to save some money this winter is to turn off the gas fireplace pilot. The pilot flame can burn as much as $10 per month when it is left on and burning.

Here’s the thing, if you’re like us we use our gas fireplace once or twice each month during the winter. Our gas fireplace is located in a formal sitting room so the only time we use it is when family and friends come to visit.

So after doing some research I found that the typical gas fireplace burns $10 to $15 dollars worth of gas each month while the pilot is lit. So I’ve decided that we’ll keep our pilot off this winter and light the fireplace on a case by case basis. To me it’s certainly worth saving $50 or $60 over the length of the winter.
