The Importance of Regular Fireplace Maintenance
You should have your gas or electric fireplace serviced every one to two years. Failure to do so could lead to serious issues jeopardizing your comfort and safety. For example, carbon can build up on the glass, the burners and inside the vents, and extended wear and tear can lead to hazardous natural gas and carbon monoxide leaks.
Furthermore, without regular maintenance, your gas or electric fireplace can become inefficient, wasting fuel and increasing your energy bills. In the worst cases, it may stop working altogether.
Common Problems for Gas and Electric Fireplaces
Like any appliance in your home, gas and electric fireplaces eventually require repairs. Here are some of the most common issues:
Difficulty in lighting the pilot light or igniting the fireplace
Problems with the gas valve can lead to irregular gas flow and inadequate heating
Faulty thermocouple causing inconsistent flames
Malfunctioning electric heating elements resulting in inadequate or uneven heating
Failing remote controls or control panels
Regular maintenance prevents these problems from happening and extends the lifespan of your gas or electric fireplace.
