Don’t Forget To Service Your Gas Fireplace

There are a lot of things to love about gas appliances: the cleaner burn, the efficient startup, the lower maintenance requirements, less overall energy usage… Yet, just because gas systems might be considered less work overall, they are not entirely hands-off either.

Just like any other fuel type, gas-fueled appliances still require preventive services, regular system inspections, and – sometimes – repairs.

The good news for homeowners in Noblesville and the surrounding areas is that Beck’s Chimney Sweep is just a phone call away. Book your next service today.

What Maintenance Does a Gas Fireplace System Require?

Despite the fact that gas combustion creates lower levels of creosote and particulate byproduct matter, it’s still important to stay on top of the regular annual services, like chimney cleanings and chimney inspections.

The truth of the matter is that, regardless of fuel source or the specific model of your appliance – be it a stove, set of gas logs, fireplace, or an insert – having everything looked over and swept out at least once a year is a non-negotiable must.

Why? Because most of what makes fireplaces and other hearth products so dangerous lurks deep within the system and the walls of the chimney.

Inspections serve as a diagnostic analysis intended to bring forth any issues that would otherwise go undetected. And scheduling a chimney sweep service every year guarantees that any particle accumulation or other debris has been effectively cleared out. Both services are necessary in order for you to operate your appliance as normal and rest assured that everything is as safe as possible.

Do you remember the last time you had your gas appliance professionally serviced? Our Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA)-certified techs know what to look for and what to do to keep gas appliances operating at peak performance levels. We’re up to date on all fire codes and standards, and we have the tools, training, and expertise to tackle everything from inspections, cleanings, and routine checks to bigger repairs.

When I called to schedule my chimney sweep, the lady who answered the phone was very nice and accommodated my schedule. The crew who came out to my house showed up on time and were very professional. They got to work quickly, were diligent in their analysis, had excellent communication throughout and cleaned up their work area as if they were never there. Highly recommend!

What Is the Lifespan of a Gas Fireplace?

Ultimately, the length of time you and your family are able to properly (and safely) enjoy your gas fireplace will depend on a few different factors. Provided your appliance was installed correctly by industry professionals, you follow manufacturer instructions with regard to operation, and you stay up to date on all of your maintenance requirements, your gas fireplace can last the better part of a lifetime – or a few decades at least.

Remember, though, that just because your gas system may require less of you in terms of overall operation, upkeep, and general care and attention, this doesn’t mean you can just use it however you want, neglect it the rest of the time, and assume it will survive for years to come.

Just like anything else, the amount of time and TLC you put into your gas appliance will correlate to its health and longevity. And the best way to ensure you’re getting the most out of your gas logs, fireplace, insert, or stove, is to make sure you’re scheduling an annual chimney cleaning and inspection every single year.

Are There DIY Solutions for Gas Fireplace Repair?

DIY gas fireplace repair and maintenance isn’t a route we recommend. When it comes to your fireplace and chimney, it is always better to trust the professionals. Why? Because despite the unassuming and simplistic appearance of your fireplace, stove, or insert, there is actually a lot going on behind the scenes to help keep you safer and better protected when your system is running.

This is particularly important with regard to gas-fueled appliances. Unlike burning wood, which has a lot to do with the human element of collecting, chopping, drying, hauling, etc., gas-fueled systems rely entirely on their (proper) connection to the fuel source.

Also, when you’re dealing with wood, it’s a lot easier to visually see when the fuel isn’t burning properly or something similar is askew. Gas, on the other hand, is a lot more difficult and dangerous to work with simply by nature of that fuel’s different properties.

Note: This is not to say that you can DIY anything with your wood-burning appliance – regardless of fuel type, working with a professional is always the best and safest route when you find that something is off with your fireplace, insert, or stove.

The short version? Unfortunately, there are just not any DIY-friendly gas fireplace (or other fireplace appliance) repairs. If and when you experience strange behaviors or system inefficiencies, the smartest and safest move is to call up the experts. Plus, you’ll end up saving loads of time and money in the long run too.
