When was Your Last Gas Fireplace Maintenance Service?

What Does Our Maintenance Service Include?

Keeping your unit operating efficiently and safely for you and your family is our specialty.

Gas fireplace maintenance consists of the following:

Remove the glass and clean both sides with a special gas glass cleaner
Vacuum logs and clean interior firebox
Check fan operation
An inspection of low volt connections
Clean burners and remove any spider webs
Check log set positioning (if incorrect, it will produce carbon)
Clean sensors, power pile and thermocouple and safety controls
Check door gasket
An inspection of the heat exchanger for cracks
Perform C.O. test and venting
Our visit includes a detailed examination of your system as a whole.

If, for example, the flame is yellow, it could mean too much carbon is present and will lead to dirty glass on your enclosure. This can be easily fixed by our technicians, and you’ll never miss the afternoons you spend cleaning the yellow stain off your fireplace enclosure (or looking at the yellow stain, but not really doing anything about it).

Skipping Service is Asking for Problems

Improper operation of gas fireplace
Severe sooting
No ignition
Poor gas fireplace performance and efficiency
Build-up of spider webs in burners
