Hello, new member here.
It's cold and really windy here today. Wind is coming hard from the NW and that is the direction that my fireplace outside vent faces. Had the thermocouple replaced and fireplace checked a year ago by a tech. He did reposition my logs slightly purposely. Pilot lights will stay lit until a strong gust of cold wind comes along and then it goes out. Even when the fireplace is fully lit the wind will blow out the pilot. I usually leave the pilot light lit year round and during the winter on chilly days, just having the pilot lit does somewhat neutralize the cold air coming in but not today. With no pilot light lit and the wind blowing like it is, it's like having a door open and tonight and tomorrow the wind is suppose to continue. A heating and AC friend said that the NW facing is probably most of my problem.
Any suggestions will be appreciated.
