Gas fireplace maintenance is usually overlooked because they burn clean and are efficient. It does not mean they need no inspection.
The fireplace works a lot in keeping your home warm, so make a practice to check it every spring. This ensures that it functions flawlessly the whole year.
Debris & junk
Debris hangs in the flue and vents, which needs to be removed or else this restricts airflow. Hanging gas fireplace debris includes –
- Faux logs eventually deteriorate
- The scratched glass on the doors can become hazardous over time. It even impacts the heat output.
- The residue accumulated inside needs to be cleaned often.
What do the technicians check during the inspection?
- The technician first checks the exterior to make sure that the glass is not dirty, chipped, or cracked.
- The framework is looked at to ensure it holds up sufficiently.
- In the interiors, the technician checks the gas ignition beneath the log structure to ensure it lights flawlessly.
- Inspect that the faux logs are not deteriorating.
- They even disassemble the unit face to inspect the connections and valves.
- Assess the heat output and clean residue blocking the vents or ports.
- The technician even ensures that there is a carbon monoxide detector in your home in working condition.
- Certified technicians will keenly answer your fireplace related questions.
