Winter is here and along with it, freezing temperatures and heavy snowfall. It’s the time of year when a lot of people are enjoying the cozy ambiance that a gas fire brings to a room.
People whose gas fire incorporates Maxitrol’s GV60 control system can also take comfort in the knowledge that should there be a power outage or furnace malfunction, the GV60 system can operate solely on battery power (if mains power is connected and there is a power outage, the battery power will kick in automatically).
Just follow a few commonsense steps like closing the doors to all unused rooms, especially upstairs, and closing the window blinds or curtains, and it is possible to keep a decent sized room quite comfortable using a gas fire. You never know how long it will be until the power comes back on or for an HVAC technician to arrive.
It’s just one of the many reasons we recommend having a GV60 battery operated gas control system. Find more information on our product pages.
