Burner & Riser

A fireplace burner and riser are key components of a gas fireplace system. The burner is a metal component that houses the gas jets and distributes the gas evenly across the fireplace. It is typically made of durable materials such as stainless steel or cast iron to withstand high temperatures.

The riser, on the other hand, is a vertical tube that extends from the burner to the top of the fireplace. It is responsible for creating the flame effect that mimics the appearance of a traditional wood-burning fireplace. The riser is designed to mix the gas with air in the correct proportions to create a clean and efficient flame.

Together, the burner and riser work in conjunction to create a realistic flame effect while also providing efficient and reliable heating. The gas jets release a steady flow of gas, which is ignited by a pilot light or electronic ignition system, and the flame is then carried up through the riser to create a natural-looking fire.

In addition to providing warmth and ambiance, gas fireplaces with a burner and riser system offer several advantages over traditional wood-burning fireplaces, including increased safety, lower maintenance requirements, and greater control over flame height and temperature. Overall, a well-designed burner and riser system can transform a gas fireplace into a beautiful and efficient centerpiece for any home.
