It’s never a fun situation when it’s a 15-degree winter day and the power goes out. The one thing on your mind is staying warm—the cold weather here in Upstate New York is no joke. If you have a gas fireplace and the right batteries, you can warm up without bundling up in your heavy coat and burying yourself under blankets!
The video below is a demonstration of how to turn on your Heatilator gas fireplace when the electricity is out. It’s a quick and easy process.
- Open the fireplace door and remove the access panel.
- Find the battery tray (under the fire box).
- Pull out the battery tray so it’s on the hearth and insert the correct batteries.
- Put the battery tray back under the fire box.
- Turn on the fireplace. (Some fireplace remotes may not work on battery power—if this is the case, switch the black box’s mode from “remote” to “on.”)
For more details—and a demonstration—watch the video:
Remember to remove batteries from the battery tray when power comes back on and set them aside where you’ll remember for future use.
