Fireplace Tip | Do A Burn Off of Your Gas Fireplace Before Your First Use

When it comes down to it – we’re all just trying to stay warm and look sexy.  Luckily, a Valor fireplace helps you with both.  Drop-dead good looks and a knack for radiating heat that will keep any Canadian home toasty.  Once you’ve had a Valor installed by the experts at Barbecues Galore, there are a few steps you need to take before you can cuddle up in front of it. 

Do A Fireplace Burn Off Before Your First Fire

Most important is to burn off some of that ‘new fireplace’ smell (similar to ‘new-car’ smell but with fewer hints of leather and engine oil  - more industrial with a note of open flame). 

Doing this is easy:  turn the fireplace on high (not ‘low’, not ‘medium), open up a bunch of windows and go for a nice long walk (which, frankly, you should probably be doing anyway – the dog needs the exercise and you’re not getting any younger yourself you know…).  Come back in an hour or two and your fireplace will be ready for daily use.
