Remote Controls & How to Replace Batteries Videos
It’s a good idea to change the batteries at the same time you change the batteries in your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors each year.
A gas fireplace receiver (located in the unit) is a battery powered backup power supply that can light your gas fireplace with the push of a button in the event of a power outage.
Pilot Light Videos
Your pilot light may have been turned off during the summer months to conserve energy or reduce the amount of heat generated inside your home. These videos will help you relight the pilot light.
How to Clean Fireplace Glass Videos
A white-grey film build up can obstruct the view of your beautiful Regency flames. This film build up is completely normal and happens from minerals in the fuel (such as sulfur and calcium) depositing on the glass during regular combustion. If this film is not cleaned, it can permanently damage the glass.
