If you love your gas log fireplace, you need to take care of it! At HVAC Utah, we often see homeowners with gas logs that are heavily corroded or have small gas leaks. It is recommended to have a gas log fireplace cleaned yearly, and replaced every 10 years based on how frequently you use the fireplace. One of the best things about owning a gas log fireplace is how easy it is to maintain. Here are some things we will do if you have a gas log fireplace needing repair services.
Gas Log Fireplace Inspection
An important element of owning a gas log fireplace is understanding how to maintain it. We will inspect the gas lines to make sure there are no concerns with gas leaks and carbon monoxide poisoning. If you use your gas logs often, we will need to test the pilot light and we will examine all connections. The HVAC Utah teach is focused on safety and we will test the quality of the air when the fireplace is running to make sure you are not at-risk for carbon monoxide poisoning.
Another common problem we run into is seeing homes that have fireplaces that are not correctly vented. While there are some homes that can use ventless fireplaces, a gas log fireplace is one that must be vented properly or you will end up with carbon monoxide poisoning. We will inspect the chimney and we recommend a yearly cleaning to remove any buildup inside the chimney. Any blockages in the chimney can lead to poor ventilation, and can increase health risks.
Gas Log Cleaning
The HVAC Utah team will brush the gas logs with a soft-bristled brush to remove any dirt, dust and debris. We have special cleaners that are non-flammable to provide your gas logs with a new look. Never use unapproved solvents and water on the gas logs as it can damage them.
