    Heat n Glow 6000 pilot gas useage.

    I have a customer that has the H&G 6000 fp and his gas bill says the pilot uses 11ccf per month in gas......is this so? I have a 50k btu water heater and a gas dryer and I barely use that amount of gas in the summer!!!

    The customer was on deployment for 4 months, left in a hurry (special forces) and forgot to turn off pilot and his gas bill reflects 11 ccf per month from just the pilot light.....everything else is electric!!! No gas leaks, no neighbor hooked to his gas meter.

    I am stumped????

    Cool

    The old style thermopile pilot burners were rated at about 800 BTU/hr but usually clocked around 900-1,100. The quick dropout pilots were rated about 1,200 but usually clocked in around 1,400. BTW most ODS pilots on VF clock in around 1,400-1,600.


    Try clocking the meter. The longer you clock it, the more accurate your reading.

    I guess his bill is pretty close. I did the math and at 1400 btus, it comes up to just short of 10ccf.
