Service Every 12 Months
If your gas fireplace hasn’t been serviced by a professional in the last 12 months, it is time to schedule an appointment. Our team can clean the fireplace and its components, check all connections, replace damaged or missing parts, and check the entire appliance for leaks, hazards, and malfunction. According to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), fire systems and chimneys must be inspected annually in order to maintain safety and efficiency. During this inspection, we run a battery of diagnostics on gas appliances in order to check for safety concerns and usability issues.
Other Times to Schedule
If you have noticed issues with your gas fireplace, it’s time to schedule an appointment with a professional. Drafting issues, such as water vapor on surfaces of the home interior or soot stains on the fireplace may be cause for concern. A diagnostician can easily identify the cause of the problem and determine a course of action. If your fireplace will not light, doesn’t stay lit, burns a different color than it should, doesn’t heat the space around it, or has a buildup of soot, call a professional.
Factory Warranties Require Maintenance
Whether your gas fireplace has dangerous problems, or if it is just time for the annual service, it’s an important step. In fact, many factory warranties require annual maintenance by a certified professional. Neglecting important service appointments, or hiring unqualified amateurs to do the work may invalidate your warranty altogether. Make sure you get the most out of your purchase and protect the value of your home by scheduling professional services for your gas fireplace now.
We offer gas services and maintenance year-round so that your fireplace is ready when winter arrives. It will also be ready for you to use on cold evenings when you don’t want to crank up the furnace. Just make sure your gas is shut off when the fireplace is closed out for the season. You can also ensure your fireplace is ready for burn season by checking the pilot light periodically through the off-season.
