Gas Log and Lighter Replacement

Dallas Gas Log Replacement Plumbers

In recent years, an increasing number of households have opted for gas log lighters as a relatively easy and simple way to start fires in the fireplace. Using gas log lighters removes the need to stuff your fireplace with newspapers or kindling. Small in diameter with several holes drilled into it, a gas log lighter is typically 12 to 18 inches long an installed near the floor beneath the wood grate. As a result of their exposure to direct heat over time, gas log lighters become warped and may develop holes where the piping has weakened. Consequently, they need to be replaced from time to time.

When to Replace Your Gas Log Lighter

When a gas log lighter develops holes, the flame produced is not always positioned directly beneath the wood in your fireplace. This leads to a waste of gas, as it takes longer to ignite the firewood placed over the log lighter. When this happens, a greater amount of natural gas is released into the fireplace, raising temperatures as a result. Additionally, in certain cases, a crumbling or damaged log lighter may release dangerous levels of carbon monoxide into a home. If the gas log lighter line is connected to the main gas line using aluminum, soft copper, of flexible stainless steel, melting or punctures in the line may occur as well.
