People with traditional, wood-burning fireplaces know how important it is to keep their chimneys clean and their fireplace is good condition. But gas fireplace owners may take the convenience of a gas fireplace to heart – and forget that it is just as important to keep this type of fireplace in great working condition. When you aren’t up to date with gas fireplace maintenance, little things can really get in the way of making a safe, comfortable fire. There will be times when you need a quick repair so you can get your fire roaring again. At Home & Hearth, we strive to make gas fireplace repair easy.
When to Call A Professional
If you think you have a gas leak. You cannot rely on your nose to detect a gas leak; many times, there will be no odor (though some gas companies do add an odorant to help users detect leaks). Listen for whistling or hissing of gas escaping, and look for broken pieces on your fireplace or a non-lit pilot light. It’s a good practice to routinely listen and look for these things, especially if it has been some time since your last fire!
If your pilot light is off and won’t turn on. Many new gas fireplace products are equipped with a sensor that cuts off the gas supply if the pilot light is not sensed. If your pilot light will not turn on, something is wrong – a valve could be blocked, the gas line could be compromised, or a part needs to be replaced, but with any of these problems, you should call a professional in order to diagnose and repair it for you.
If your safety screen is damaged or fogged-up. The gas fireplace’s safety screen is important part of keeping your fire safe, so if yours isn’t in good condition, have it replaced. If your screen is need of a professional cleaning due to soot or fog, call a professional. They can also check your fireplace for needed repairs during a routine cleaning.
If you realize that you haven’t had a professional look at your fireplace in a few years, it’s time for a long overdue check-up.
