Does My Gas Fireplace Need to Be Serviced?
Living in Fort Bend County, or just anywhere in Texas, it should come as no surprise that gas fireplaces are quickly becoming the number one choice in heating homes. With the Lone Star State’s reputation for both warm summers and chilly winters, the convenience, efficiency, and coziness of gas fireplaces make them an ideal heating solution for homeowners across the region.
Not to mention, being from the gas and oil hub of America, it could be deemed almost silly to spend valuable time gathering firewood, struggling with lighting the kindling, or nearly blacking out from attempting to blow the flames to life for a wood-burning fireplace. Instead, embrace instant warmth with the flip of a switch or the push of a button on a remote with a gas system.
Now, with such little work involved, you might be thinking, Is maintenance even necessary in a gas fireplace?
However, just like any other appliance or system in your home, regular maintenance for your gas fireplace is essential to ensure its continued performance, efficiency, and most importantly, safety. That’s why, along with us, the Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA) recommends that inspections and sweepings on a gas fireplace be performed at least once a year – even if your gas fireplace seems to be functioning well (and especially if you haven’t used it in awhile).
Why Is Annual Servicing Important for a Gas Fireplace?
While it’s true that gas fireplaces are generally low-maintenance compared to wood-burning fireplaces and stoves, don’t confuse that with no maintenance at all. Over time, dust, debris, and even natural buildup of combustion byproducts can affect some of the many components on a gas fireplace, ultimately affecting how well it performs.
On top of that, having your gas fireplace serviced annually by a certified chimney sweep serves as the only effective way of eliminating potential issues before they escalate. Gas leaks, faulty ignition systems, and issues with venting can all be caught early through routine maintenance, which prevents safety hazards and costly repairs in the future.
Beyond safety concerns and performance, regular servicing also contributes to the longevity of your gas fireplace. Most gas appliances come with a warranty that requires yearly inspections and chimney sweeps to remain valid. Lords Chimney wants to help you protect your investment and your loved ones for years to come.
Are There Any Maintenance Tasks I Can Do Myself?
In our current economy, where the price of everything is going up, it is common for people to want to find ways to cut costs. So, we understand why you might be wondering if there are things you can do to help. While some aspects of gas fireplace maintenance should be left to certified professionals, there are several tasks you can perform on your own to keep your gas fireplace in good, working condition.
- Regular Cleaning: Even though gas burns cleaner than wood, dust and debris can still accumulate on the glass doors and surrounding surfaces. Be sure to clean the glass doors with an ammonia-free glass cleaner that is approved for fireplaces. Also, wipe down the exterior of the fireplace to remove any dust or dirt.
- Test Ignition System: There are two types of ignition systems in a gas fireplace: pilot light ignition and electronic ignition. If you have a pilot light, make sure the pilot light ignites and remains lit. If it uses an electronic ignition, double check that it’s sparking properly.
- Inspect the Ventilation: Do you notice any signs of blockage or obstructions in the venting system? Improper air flow could cause inefficient combustion, incomplete burning, or even the buildup of harmful gases like carbon monoxide.
- Check for Gas Leaks: The best way to stay on top of potential gas leaks is to install a carbon monoxide detector near your fireplace. If you are concerned about a potential gas leak, some people will recommend taking a mixture of soapy water to check for bubbles at the connection points. However, for your safety, you should turn off the gas, and call Lords Chimney at 832-323-2014 to come take a look.
- Replace Batteries: You wouldn’t believe the number of times we have been called out to inspect a gas fireplace for not turning on, only to discover that the culprit is simply dead batteries. The best way to remember to change batteries in your gas fireplace remote or thermostat is to do that at the same time you change the batteries in your smoke detector.
- Review the Owner’s Manual: To fully understand what maintenance recommendations are specific to your gas fireplace, familiarize yourself with the owner’s manual that came with your appliance.
But remember – regardless of how well you keep up with these maintenance tasks, yearly professional servicing by a certified technician is the only surefire way to ensure your gas fireplace is safe, efficient, and heating your home properly for years to come. Allow Lords Chimney to be your point of contact for all gas fireplace maintenance needs.
