Skilled, Efficient Service to Keep Your Gas Log Fireplace Safe

When you call us for routine gas log fireplace service, a thorough check and cleaning is done. It is recommended by manufacturers to perform this service at least annually, preferably just before the fall season prior to the first cold weather drop in temperature.

It is important to have this service done prior to any potential use of the gas log fireplace. You will not want any problems to occur that can cause you or your family or business serious harm.

The service needed depends on the type of gas fireplace installed. In general, our Rock Hill gas log fireplace service and cleaning includes:

  • Pilot and burner orifices inspected and cleaned
  • Fireplace box vacuumed
  • Burners and logs cleaned
  • Burner venturi inspected and if necessary reset to manufacturer specs
  • Safety switches checked
  • Embers replenished
  • Glass door cleaned and reinstalled
  • Control compartment vacuumed and cleaned
  • Gas valve and junction box tested
  • Pilot light relit if applicable
  • Burner is lighted
  • Whole system is checked for proper running function
  • Check for gas and carbon monoxide leaks

What Can I Do Myself to Care for My Gas Log Fireplace?

There are several things you can do as a homeowner or property owner as well. It is important that you realize that monthly checks and maintenance can possibly save you or your family from an unexpected and possibly lethal disaster.

Our Rock Hill gas log fireplace service and cleaning experts recommend that you perform the following maintenance at least monthly:

  • Check the gasket for cracks or broken pieces (located on the glass door or exterior around the firebox)
  • Check the bolts, wing nuts, brackets, hinges, etc. to make sure door is secured tightly
  • Check the outside vent and clean
  • It is important for you to perform a little maintenance on your gas log fireplace as well.

If the glass door does not sit properly, having a good seal with a good gasket, then carbon monoxide can leak into your home. Carbon monoxide kills and is almost impossible to detect. Our experts at Mechanical Doctor, Inc also recommend that a carbon monoxide alarm be installed for anyone who has the possibility of carbon monoxide leakage.

You will want to be sure that the exterior venting is clean and free of any yard debris. It should not be torn, blocked, or damaged in any way.

Can I Leave My Gas Log Fireplace On Overnight?

Do not leave your gas log fireplace on and left unattended for long periods of time or overnight. Leaving it on overnight puts you and your home at risk of carbon monoxide poisoning. If your gas log fireplace is designed to run continuously it may be safe to leave it on, but we still don't recommend it.
