Are You Maintaining Your Fireplace?
Like a traditional fireplace, a gas log fireplace is also going to produce some negative attributes while burning through the logs. Many individuals do not maintain their fireplace regularly, and this can cause serious problems with the quality of your indoor air and even lead to spreading fires. It’s recommended that your fireplace is serviced and cleaned at least once a year. Our technicians perform routine heating and cooling inspections that also include maintenance for gas log fireplaces.
Regular maintenance will help correct problems that you may not have noticed, including damaged vents, lose equipment, and other issues that might cause your home to use more energy than desired. Our technicians will be able to determine if your fireplace should be cleaned out as well.
What Are Common Problems with Gas Log Fireplaces?
With a gas log fireplace, you always want to be on the lookout for a potential gas leak. If you ever smell gas outside of the fireplace or hear a hissing sound coming from outside of the unit, you need to turn off the system immediately and contact your technician. Keep in mind, though, that the equipment will naturally hiss when you turn it on, and you will likely smell gas; however, this should always be contained directly to the interior of the fireplace.
Other problems to look out for include the blackening of the bricks around the fireplace, or issues that can come from the burning and charred remains right around the fireplace. You will also need to contact your technician if there is a thick buildup of charred material inside the unit, as this can catch on fire. We will help you clear out your unit so you can start enjoying its benefits safely.
