Now that sweater weather is officially here, it’s the perfect time to have your gas fireplace serviced. If you haven’t used your fireplace in a few months, it is likely that buildup and other potential damage can occur. An annual inspection and cleaning is imperative to keep you and your family safe during the cold season.

Blower Check

If you have not scheduled a blower inspection since last year, it is a necessary step in preparing for the cold season. An annual inspection will help:

  • Reduce creosote buildup and eliminate the possibility of a fire.
  • Maintain air quality by ensuring toxic fumes don’t drift into the house.
  • Repair potential damage that may occurred throughout the spring and summer.

Gas Fireplace Check

The unit of your gas fireplace should be inspected from top to bottom. The components that are observed during a safety inspection include: the pilot light, burners, ignition, gas supply pipe, and valve. The purpose is to closely monitor cracks or damage to avoid a potentially serious leak.

Energize Smoke Detectors and Devices

Replace the batteries in your smoke detectors. If you have a gas fireplace, add fresh batteries to the remote-control devices.
