Have you recently converted to a new gas fireplace insert? One of the major advantages of gas is the low maintenance involved. Not only can do you avoid ash clean up, but the fire burns so much cleaner too. When you burn wood, creosote develops naturally as a residue that sticks to the inner chimney walls. Since creosote is highly flammable, its deposits could lead to dangerous situations, such as chimney fires. This is why traditional fires require so much professional maintenance, such as a chimney sweeping. With gas, there is little of that.
Although you do not have to worry about creosote removal, you still need to have your gas fireplace insert professionally inspected and serviced. This ensures that it is working as safely and efficiently as possible. For years, Ashbusters has provided the Charleston area with professional chimney maintenance, repair, and installation services, including gas appliance inspection services, and our technicians have been certified by the National Fireplace Institute (NFI) as Gas Specialists. We would like to tell you more about what you can expect when we come to service your gas fireplace appliance.
What to Expect
When our NFI Gas Specialists show up to service your gas fireplace appliance, we will inspect and clean your unit. This will include inspection of components like the gas valve, the pilot light, gasket seal, burner, and logs. You can count on us to remove any buildup from the glass fireplace doors and to make sure your insert has been installed correctly and connected properly to the venting system. The experts at Ashbusters will then check out the chimney to see if there is anything blocking it. We will ensure that it has no problems with exhausting gases so that your gas fireplace appliance can work safely and efficiently.
If you have any questions about your fireplace, we are happy to answer whatever they may be. Our NFI Gas Specialists also provide repair and installation services so if your pilot light will not stay lit or if your fan keeps making loud noises, Ashbusters can help you get your gas appliance working properly again.
Regardless of the fuel type, fire safety experts recommend that all fireplace appliances and their venting systems be professionally inspected every year.
