Gas appliances are becoming more and more popular with every passing year. Why? Their ease of use and mess-free functioning make them the perfect choice for busy homeowners everywhere! Yet, that doesn’t mean these units don’t need regular maintenance. Be sure you are scheduling annual inspections and cleanings, and ask about having your gas logs serviced at least once per year.
Servicing your gas logs help ensure that every piece of your fireplace is running as efficiently as possible. If any of your gas lines or connections are misplaced or damaged, then you could wind up facing a lot of issues! Learn more below.
Air flow is an essential piece of your chimney’s overall functioning. If air isn’t venting properly, you’re entire appliance will not run as well and moisture issues will start to form inside your flue. Moisture causes corrosion which leads to lots of repairs and replacement parts. Save yourself the time, hassle, and money, and schedule your inspection today!
Proper air flow also limits the chances of harmful toxins entering your home. Carbon monoxide and other fumes lead to illness, hospital visits, and have even proved to be fatal. Don’t take any chances when it comes to the health and safety of your family. Have a professional inspect your gas logs so you know every part of your appliance is hooked up correctly.
If your gas appliance doesn’t seem to be working correctly, it’s important to have it looked at as soon as possible. Using a malfunctioning fireplace could lead to fire hazards, inhalation of poisonous gases, and will likely make any damages even worse. Turn everything off and schedule an appointment with a certified expert right away!
Everything seem to be running fine? You still need to schedule that chimney inspection! If it’s been a year since your last inspection, but things seem to be working normally, you still should have a professional check things over. There are many parts to these appliances and you never know what could be going wrong. Often, repairs aren’t very obvious. Play it safe, and call in your experts today!
When it comes to cleaning your gas logs, you never want to use any fancy chemicals or other products. They should also never be removed from the unit. It’s not the most challenging job out there, but cleaning every nook and cranny isn’t always easy. Have a professional do the job right, so your logs look good as new every single day!
