Gas Fireplace Maintenance

Putting off maintenance on your gas fireplace can affect your health and home. Save on future repair costs and have confidence in your system with proper maintenance.

The health of your family and safety of your home are your top priorities, so shouldn’t you do everything possible to make sure your gas fireplace is working safely and efficiently?

We know that most homeowners aren’t aware that their gas fireplace needs maintenance, but it does. Learn about what issues you may face and what your solutions are if you choose to delay maintenance.

Are You Experiencing Any of These Problems?

  • Your pilot light is on and your gas is on, but your fireplace won’t light.
  • Your pilot light went out.
  • You need to have the embers in your gas fireplace replaced.
  • You need yearly service for your gas appliance.
  • Your carbon monoxide detector is going off

If you are experiencing any of these problems then it’s time to book gas services before you use your appliance.

Even if you aren’t having a problem, prevention is key. Investing in yearly maintenance protects you from fires, gas exposure and any malfunctions that cost you even more down the road.

How Often Should a Gas Fireplace be Swept?

Any gas fireplace, whether it is a gas insert, a gas stove, or a fireplace with gas logs, requires annual service. While gas fireplaces certainly don’t produce the soot and creosote that wood burning fireplaces do, they still require technical servicing and debris removed. We can take care of this during an annual servicing.

Do You Have to Service a Gas Fireplace?

Gas fireplaces are fueled by natural or propane (LP) gas. All gas fireplaces need annual service for correct, efficient, and safe operation. Annual service is important because it allows the unit to be properly cleaned, tested, and checked for anything that could reduce appliance safety or efficiency. Valves, connections, thermocouples and thermopiles, and the venting system need to be checked for wear and suitability for use.

Everyone on the Clean Sweep of Anne Arundel County staff was great to work with. When scheduling the appointment, Chuck was extremely helpful and knowledgeable. He explained all the services in great detail and squared us away. The crew arrived early and got to work right away. They were also extremely knowledgeable and very professional… I would highly recommend Clean Sweep of Anne Arundel County to anyone in need of chimney services.

In a word — superb! The inspectors were knowledgeable, professional, and answered all of my questions. The inspection report was provided right on the spot. The appointment was scheduled quickly, the inspectors were on time, and the follow-through was thorough. I highly recommend Clean Sweep!
