Going Green – Check Pilot Lights

At the last Green Foodservice Alliance meeting, I heard that a pilot light can cost a restaurant about 500.00 per year. There are many “green” appliances available that use an ignition system other than a pilot light. These will save money in the long run.

However, if you do have pilot lights, you can make sure that they are efficient.

A pilot light should be a small blue flame shaped like a bullet. If you see yellow flame, or the flame is tall and narrow, there is an adjustment you can change to correct the flame.

This will not only save money, it saves precious resources too!
