HI,

Does anyone with a gas fireplace turn off the pilot during periods of non-use? The person who installed ours said to leave the pilot lit year round, regardless of use. He said it would prevent moisture from rusting out the unit over time. We live in the midwest - so we get all seasons. We really never use the fireplace due to a strong odor that is emitted after the fireplace has been on for more than 15 minutes or so. The smell is likely due to the glue in the mantle heating up. Not much we can do about it. Thus I'd like to turn the pilot off year round, but am worried about rusting.Anyone knowledgeable able to offer an opinion?


Please help.

I did not find the right solution from the internet.
