A cozy gas fireplace. Cornwall’s favourite winter appliance.

There’s nothing like a gas fireplace to take the chill out of winter’s bitter cold. A gas fireplace installation in Cornwall is particularly good because:

3 Types of fireplaces

Walker ClimateCare offers 3 types of fireplaces. Read below on the differences between each type. 


Fireplaces can be fuelled by either natural gas, or propane. While they can also be wood-burning, this is not a product category that Walker ClimateCare installs, nor services. We focus only on reliable, consistent gas-burning fireplaces. These fireplaces vent directly to the outdoors to exhaust dangerous combustion fumes, as well as intake fresh air.

Regency Insert


Inserts look and behave a lot like fireplaces. In fact, many people aren’t aware there’s a distinction! The key difference is that inserts are essentially gas-burning fireplaces inserted into the cavity where a wood-burning fireplace used to live. They are naturally drafted through a traditional chimney, above the roofline of the home, rather than through venting that’s often more concealed on a newly constructed fireplace.

Gas Stove


Stoves are visibly very different from fireplaces or inserts. Rather than being recessed into a wall and finished with a mantle, stoves are freestanding. Stoves can also be operated by burning wood, or pellets, but can also be gas-burning, which are the only stoves we install or service. Stoves are often located in basements and always stop atop a hearth pad as a safety measure. If you’re interested in the warmth a stove can provide, and want the reliability of a gas-burning appliance, you’ve come to the right spot!

The advantages of a gas fireplace

Install a gas fireplace and turn that dark and chilly basement rec room to a family you actually want to relax in.

A new gas fireplace is also a comfortable answer to cool mornings and evenings in the spring and fall, when you need a little extra heat part of your home where you spend a lot of time.

If you don’t have natural gas in your area, you can still take advantage of the benefits of a gas fireplace by using propane as the fuel.

Fireplace Troubleshooting

Standing Pilot

One of the most common challenges with fireplaces, inserts and stoves is that they won’t light, although this isn’t very frequent with continuous pilot models. This usually happens on cold or damp days as the air that enters your unit’s firebox makes it harder to light. It may simply take a few tries to warm and dry the air around the igniter enough for it to start the appliance.

This may be especially unfamiliar to you if youÕve replaced an older fireplace, insert or stove where the pilot light never went out. Ontario banned standing pilots in fireplaces manufactured after January 1st, 2021 (O. Reg. 509/18) to force these appliances to meet stricter efficiency guidelines. Since that time, standing pilot models come equipped with a 7-day timer. If there’s no call for heat and the unit doesn’t ignite within 7 days, the pilot light will go out automatically, and you’ll need to relight it manually. You can find the instructions to do so in the owner’s manual that we left behind for you. The easiest way to get around this is to ensure your fireplace is used once a week, even if briefly.

Electronic Ignition

One of the most common challenges with fireplaces, inserts and stoves is that they won’t light. This usually happens on cold or damp days as the air that enters your unit’s firebox makes it harder to light. This is normal! It may simply take a few tries to warm and dry the air around the igniter enough for it to start the appliance. Your fireplace uses an electronic ignition system that, by default, is set to Intermittent Pilot Ignition mode (IPI). If you regularly find that the unit takes several attempts to start, and you’d prefer this not be the case, you can change it to Continuous Pilot Ignition (CPI) mode. In CPI mode, the pilot light will stay on continuously, so long as there’s a call for heat at least once every 7 days. After 7 consecutive days without use, the pilot will extinguish. This is a regularly requirement in Ontario since January 1st 2021 and cannot be adjusted (O. Reg. 509/18).
In CPI mode, your fireplace will consume more gas to keep the pilot lit, however, the heat that pilot creates helps to keep the firebox and flue warmer, so you’re more likely to get successful ignition the first time.

If your unit is set to Intermittent Pilot Ignition mode, there’s no need for concern. The pilot will light when it receives a call for heat from the thermostat or remote control, which will then light the main burner. When the main burner extinguishes after it’s reached the temperature you set, the pilot will extinguish too. This is normal operation in IPI mode, and helps you conserve natural gas/propane. If you’ve set your unit to Continuous Pilot Mode with the remote control or the internal toggle switch, and the pilot light is going out before the 7-day timer expires, please contact us to arrange service.

Not to worry; your appliance can still heat your space without electricity. To start it, you’ll need to put batteries into the battery compartment. The instructions to do so are in the owner’s manual. Once done, your unit can be operated by the remote control or thermostat like normal, except that the blower motor won’t operate as this requires 110V electricity and cannot be powered by batteries like the igniter. Once electricity is restored to your home, we recommend removing the batteries so they don’t corrode sitting dormant inside your unit.
