Five Important Benefits of Gas Fireplace Service and Inspections

Gas heating appliances are designed to bring comfort and enjoyment to your home.

When maintained and serviced on a regular schedule, you can expect your appliance to:

  1. Run at peak efficiency, the way it’s supposed to
  2. Have less chance of a gas leak or fire
  3. Last longer
  4. Bring lower utility bills because of its high efficiency
  5. Provide you with a beautiful and elegant visual for entertaining, socializing and just relaxing after a long day

Gas Appliance Venting Systems

While gas appliance maintenance doesn’t involve major cleaning as with wood fireplaces, we do have to do some cleaning to remove particulate matter that naturally builds up in the gas vent. If neglected, this buildup can grow to the point that it impedes the drafting of gas fumes and toxins. The biggest concern here is carbon monoxide, a clear, odorless gas that can be fatal when inhaled by people and pets.

We also want to make sure the material of the vent isn’t cracked or broken. A damaged vent pipe will allow carbon monoxide and other pollutants to leak into your home’s atmosphere. If we find issues with your venting system components, we can make repairs or replace them with new components.

Annual Gas Fireplace Inspections

Every gas appliance needs a safety inspection performed once a year. Licensed inspections by qualified technicians will alert you to early signs of damage or malfunction, so you can have them resolved quickly. Between inspections, you should keep an eye on the unit and do some general cleaning and wiping down, but there’s no substitute for a professional inspection.

Here are some of the tasks covered in our gas fireplace inspections:

  • Test the heating, burning and operating efficiency of the unit
  • Monitor levels of carbon monoxide and oxygen
  • Closely inspect all connections, fittings, pipes and valves for leaks and rust
  • Confirm that the pilot light and ignition system are working correctly
  • Examine the gas logs for cracks, chips and other damage
  • Determine the level of soot buildup in the vents and on the appliance
  • Clean out and open up blocked burner ports
  • Inspect the fan, wiring and blower motor blades
