Standing pilot

​A natural gas fireplace with a standing pilot light still uses natural gas even when the fireplace is off. In fact, the pilot light can use up to 10 gigajoules of natural gas a year. When it’s time to upgrade your fireplace, consider an energy-efficient EnerChoice® model with electronic ignition.

Unlike fireplaces designed mostly for decoration, EnerChoice natural gas fireplaces are designed to provide efficient space heating. They use outdoor air for combustion and are sealed so the heated air stays in the room instead of escaping up the chimney or out the vent. Some models also feature adjustable flame height, automatic thermostat controls and remote controls. 

Turn your hearth into a hub of high efficiency by upgrading to an energy-efficient EnerChoice natural gas fireplace. Install a FortisBC eligible model and you could qualify for a $300 rebate.
