We Fix Common Gas Fireplace Problems

It’s easy to tell if your gas fireplace has a problem when the pilot light won’t come on or the logs won’t light, but there are some problems that you can’t see. That is why maintenance is so important. Yes, a lot of homeowners think that gas fireplaces are maintenance free, but really the appliance is maintenance-light. 

7 Problems With Gas Fireplaces

  1. One of the two battery sets are dead
  2. Debris in the burner
  3. Cloudy glass from minerals
  4. Gas fuel was never turned back on
  5. Air in the gas line
  6. Vents aren’t fuming properly
  7. Carbon monoxide leaks

But all of these problems can be prevented by proper inspections and cleanings annually. 

Having Trouble With Your Gas Appliance? Want To Prevent Problems? We Can Help

If you’re having any issues with your gas appliance — perhaps the pilot light won’t stay lit or your fan is running much louder than it used to — it’s time to schedule an inspection to see if you need a cleaning or repair.

What’s Included In A Gas Appliance Inspection?

Every gas appliance inspection will include a cleaning and inspection of all components, including gas valves, pilot lights, gasket seals, burners, and of course, the logs themselves. The glass is also cleaned to ensure you’re enjoying a beautiful view of the fire, each and every time.

We’ll check for proper installation, proper clearance, and proper connection, and make sure there are no obstructions or other issues that could prevent your gas appliance from working or venting properly.

If any repairs are needed, you can count on our experienced and knowledgeable gas appliance experts to take care of it for you quickly.

  • Pilot light repairs
  • Gasket repairs
  • Log installations
  • Fireplace conversions
  • Glass cleaning
  • Valve repairs
  • Burner repairs

Of course, you don’t have to wait for a problem to spring up to give us a call. By scheduling an annual inspection and service of your gas appliance (which is recommended by the National Fire Protection Association and the CSIA), you can prevent problems and keep everything in tip-top shape, season after season.

Keep your home and family safe with proper maintenance. You can have confidence that your appliance is working safely and efficiently. 

Tim was professional, experienced, and honest. I felt completely at ease with the quality of the inspection and the repairs identified to make my fireplace safe and efficient. I have found an expert chimney sweep! Thank you for a job well done at a reasonable price and on schedule.

Timmy did a great job, not only in terms of his craftsmanship but being transparent in what he was doing, and why he was doing it. He returned quickly and late in the evening to fix an additional problem that arose later, after his initial visit. He was really a pleasure to deal with, and was respectful and courteous to my family and me.
