Gas Fireplace Repairs

You may not realize it but gas fireplaces are a heating appliance and much like the furnace that heats your home, they should be serviced annually.  You might need fireplace repairs if you have been experiencing:

  • Fogged glass

  • Gas leaks

  • Pilot lighting problems

  • Faulty remotes

  • Flames going out

  • Soot problems

  • Delayed ignitions

  • Or if you have seen structural damage.

 

It doesn’t matter what the problem is. If we can obtain parts for your fireplace, we can fix it! Our professional team can provide yearly maintenance and repairs for most makes and models of fireplaces.

Gas Fireplace Routine Maintenance

Every home heating appliance needs a certain amount of routine maintenance to continue working at optimum levels. So why wait until there are serious and very expensive problems to check on your fireplace?

 

Because of all the hard work a fireplace does in every use while heating your home, our professionals recommend cleaning every fireplace or insert annually. Here are the areas we check during your routine maintenance:
 

  • Burners- Looking for deterioration or blockage

  • Proper pilot size and production

  • Proper ignition

  • System wiring

  • Venting integrity and blockage (depending on accessibility)

  • Gas pressure

  • Air shutter and restrictors

  • Flame recognition rod

  • Thermocouple and Thermopile

  • Plus we clean the glass using a special compound to remove build-up

Fireplace Maintenance Tips

When scheduling your annual cleaning, chimney sweep, or dryer vent cleaning, keep in mind the fall and winter months are much busier. To guarantee a prompt appointment we recommend scheduling these annual appointments in the spring and summer months. 

To prepare for your service appointment, please remove any fragile items from around the area where we will be working and refrain from using the appliance 24 hours prior to the appointment.
