Cold Weather Tip – Pilot Lights

Cold Weather Fireplace Tip:

Did you know that fireplace manufacturers suggest, if you have an Electronic Ignition Pilot Light (IPI) and you live in a cooler climate, when the temperatures reach 30 degrees or cooler outside you should switch your fireplace into its “Continuous Pilot Mode”.

By having the pilot on continuously, the firebox will remain warm and maintain a draft in the vent, allowing the burner to turn on with less airflow disruption and less condensation on the glass.

When continuous pilot mode is activated, the pilot will spark and light. When the fireplace is turned OFF, the pilot will remain lit even when the main burner has been turned OFF.

If you thought this was a helpful tip, please share with your friends. If you’d like more fireplace tips, please be sure to like our page. Thanks and stay warm!

Social Ice – 2012

Looking for a break from the Winter-Blahs?  Check out the Social Ice Bar in downtown Rochester!

For three days, locals (thousands of them!) descend on the Peace Plaza to check out live music and ice carvings with friends while sipping specialty drinks served in glasses actually carved from ice.  What could be cooler than that?  Well not much, and since it can get a bit cold outside, Energy Products & Design was invited to help turn up the heat by adding some fire to the scene.

 

 

 

The pub tables feature our compact table top firepits.  Fueled with small cans of an alcohol based gel these spinning fires are portable and add an element of “cool” to any event. – $199.

 

 

 

 

 

If you are looking for a little more drama with friends, then check out our larger 30″ tall Venturi Spin fires which put a new twist on the idea of a back yard fire. – $1199.

 

 

 

Interested in adding a new flame to your life?  Show us a photo of yourself with one of our fires from Social Ice and we’ll give you a $50 discount on one of our Table Top Venturi Firepits through 2/18/12!
