1. You’ll Beat the Rush
Everyone is busy, and it’s easy to put off what you need to do until the last minute. That’s why fall is the busiest season for fireplace professionals. If you schedule now, you’ll beat the fall rush and be ready to safely fire-up your fireplace as soon as the first chill is in the air.
Are you wondering what to expect with our gas-burning appliance safety check? Our Technicians will perform a safety check of the gas appliance to identify potential hazards with careful attention to the valves for gas leaks. Once we finish the inspection will answer any questions you may have.
2. You’ll Clean Out What Nature Left Behind Last Spring When You Clean Your Chimney!
Sometimes critters from the great outdoors decide to take up residence indoors. Birds are notorious culprits, squirrels, bats and other animals routinely visit or make their homes in chimneys during the spring. Now that nesting season is waning, and the critters are leaving, it’s the perfect time to take back your chimney. A licensed chimney expert can remove the nests and other debris and add a cap to make your chimney less hospitable to wildlife in the future.
3. You’ll Have Extra Time to Make Repairs
Gas fireplaces do require less maintenance than wood-burning fireplaces, it’s true. That doesn’t mean they’re maintenance free. Problems can occur with gas fireplaces such as, debris buildup ( ceramic logs can deteriorate and clog vents) and leaks in valves and connections. Thermopiles and thermocouples do require periodic cleaning, and they can wear out over time. In addition, the ceramic logs in a gas fireplace should be checked to ensure they are properly placed and in working condition.
