Common Problems with Gas Log Fireplaces
Homeowners should keep in mind gas log fireplaces are connected to gas lines, which can pose a hazard if there’s ever a leak. If you ever smell the unmistakable stench of gas or hear the hissing sound of pressurized air escaping a pipe close to the fireplace, we suggest you turn off the device immediately. Open every door and window in your home to let the gas escape and call a professional to inspect the unit. It’s important not to confuse these symptoms with the gas that escapes the device naturally when you first turn it on.
Other things to keep an eye out for are blackened bricks or charred debris around the fireplace. Any large buildup of charred items inside the device might warrant a professional cleaning. This material is dangerous because it can catch on fire, and our technicians will be happy to help you ensure everything is safe for you to continue enjoying your fireplace.
Gas Log Fireplace Maintenance Service
One thing about gas log fireplaces that’s much like a traditional fireplace it will leave behind debris. This can have a serious impact on the indoor air quality in your home, which is why scheduling regular maintenance can help your home stay safe and healthy. Leaving behind these remains could also potentially spreading fire to the rest of the property. We recommend you have your gas log fireplace serviced at least once every year.
While performing maintenance, our technician will also inspect the fireplace for any previously unknown problems or irregularities. This might include loose components, damaged vents and any other issues that may could have costly consequences if not addressed in a timely manner. We can help you fix any problem before it turns into a disaster.
