Subsequently, one may also ask, is a blue flame safe on a gas fire?
A blue flame indicates safe and efficient combustion, meaning that the gas is being burned efficiently and not being wasted. Blue flames are hotter and indicate more complete combustion. Whether it is your gas stove, gas furnace, or any other gas appliance, you always want a blue flame.
Subsequently, question is, what does a blue flame mean? A natural gas blue flame indicates that the burner is providing the correct air-fuel mixture, with sufficient oxygen for complete combustion at the burner. A blue flame burns the fuel completely producing carbon dioxide, water and heat.
Accordingly, what color should the flame be in a gas fireplace?
A healthy gas flame will burn steadily with a yellow or orange. If the flame is not yellow or orange it may be a sign that your gas fireplace needs adjusting or cleaning, which should be done by a qualified technician, such as those we have at Kozy Heat.
