Gas Fireplace Maintenance in Maryland, Virginia & DC
It’s always a good idea to start thinking more about your fireplace before the winter months set in — specifically, maintaining it throughout the year to ensure that it operates reliably and effectively. The last thing you want to deal with is a fireplace in need of repairs when the temperature outside plummets.
How Often Should Your Fireplace Be Inspected for Problems?
Even though a gas fireplace chimney doesn’t become caked with creosote the way a wood-burning fireplace does, your gas fireplace still needs routine maintenance. A fireplace inspection should typically be conducted annually. However, if the fireplace is older or is used frequently, it may need to be looked at slightly more often. Our certified experts will evaluate your home’s fireplace and accurately assess its condition. We can provide fast, cost-effective solutions to get your fireplace back in working order if repairs are needed.
Signs That Your Fireplace Needs Repair
If you have a fireplace in your home, it’s essential to watch for any signs your fireplace needs professional attention. Common indicators that your fireplace needs repair include:
- If strange odors are coming from the fireplace, call a professional to inspect it. This is especially important if it smells like rotten eggs, as this could indicate a dangerous natural gas leak.
- An excess of soot is a sign of poor airflow and means that your fireplace and chimney need to cleaning.
- Unusual noises of any kind could mean an issue with the pilot light or burner, which a professional will need to check.
If you are encountering any of these issues, do not hesitate to reach out to a professional immediately, as they could become safety concerns if left ignored.
