Gas leaks are just one problem you might encounter, and that in itself is no joking matter. Gas leaks can be very dangerous and should be dealt with immediately.

Gas Fireplace Cleaning Service, Massachusetts
Most people know that ordinary wood-burning fireplaces need a good cleaning from time to time due to the buildup of creosote and soot. Gas fireplaces are built to burn neatly without any of the soot building up in their chimneys. However, they too need a cleaning once in a while.
Debris can build up from deteriorated ceramic logs which can clog the vents. If something has gone wrong with the chimney and the mortar joints aren’t in good condition or the crown has cracked then this can allow moisture to get into the chimney system, causing the tiles to break which will end them up right in your hearth.
Keeping your gas fireplace place clean will help it work smoothly and problem-free. Don’t take for granted how well a nicely cleaned gas fireplace can work for you! Connections and valves tend to develop leaks over time. Thermocouple and thermopile get worn out and will benefit from a good cleaning from time to time.
Cleaning your gas fireplace is also a part of maintaining its safety. Gas appliances with malfunctions are leaks are at greater risk of sudden fires and even explosions. If an animal, such as a bird, has set up its home around the top of your chimney then this can post a safety hazard. Getting your gas fireplace cleaned regularly will help you notice things like this a lot easier.
The good news is that you’ve got us to count on! We’re well equipped and prepared to clean and tweak your gas fireplace and leave it in tip-top conditions!

Gas Fireplace Maintenance & Troubleshooting
A fireplace serves as a fantastic centerpiece that adds class and style to the room it’s in. Although wood fireplaces are more common that natural gas or propane, the latter are easier to upkeep, are generally safer and burn longer than wood. Of course with these perks come its own set of issues that need a professional to tackle.
Even though fireplaces make an excellent addition to your home, the damaging power of fire should never be underestimated. These days, with the amount of knowledge we have on fire and gas fireplaces, we’re much better able to enjoy the benefits than we were years ago.
Gas fireplaces often have issues with the pilot light. The pilot light serves at the primary source of ignition. If the pilot light doesn’t glow blue, that means it can’t get hot enough to ignite a proper fire and something needs to be repaired or replaced.
The thermopile and thermocouple are needed as temperature sensors and as electricity generators used to light the fire. When these malfunction it keeps the pilot light from being able to do its job properly. Older gas fireplaces often have a thermocouple, and they often have problems with connectivity. With these, the wiring, tubing and screws need to be checked to ensure that everything is hooked up as it should be.
There’s a whole lot more to know about maintaining gas fireplaces, but that’s something you can leave to the professionals. With our services you’ll get a full maintenance package that includes checkups, fixing, and troubleshooting for any possible issues you may be having with your gas fireplace.
Gas Fireplace Insert Service & Repairs
One question we often get when out doing repairs on our customers’ gas fireplaces, insert, or logs is whether or not it’s actually worth it to get the thing fixed or if it’s better to just replace the whole thing. To tell you the truth, there usually isn’t a one-size-fits-all answer to this question, although it’s often more worth it to do repairs than replace the entire thing. Sometimes what seems like a simple problem may be a lot more complex than you’d initially thought, and there are cases when fixing one problem will reveal yet another problem that needs fixing. You’ll want to know the right questions to ask to make sure you’re making the right decision. Make sure it’s cost effective and ask your service tech if you’ll be able to meet your hearth goals with the one you have right now. If your gas fireplace is on the older side, there is a chance that it might be wiser to replace it. Once again, we’ve come across all kinds of cases and we’d need to see what exactly you’re looking for and what you’re working with before making any recommendations.
Our service technicians will do their best to answer all your questions so that you know exactly how you want to proceed. We’ll also provide you with tips on how to best use your gas fireplace in order to keep it in good shape and fully functional.
What is a Gas Fireplace, and How Does it Work?
Gas fireplaces are a convenient and clean source of heat. A lot of people enjoy spending time around a fireplace in their living rooms, snuggled up in blankets with loved ones, reading a book or watching a movie.
Modern gas fireplaces don’t emit any smoke and the waste goes through a tube vent through the wall instead of exhaust fumes going up through a chimney as they do with a wood fireplace. Channels of air-movement are incorporated to maximize the amount of warmth the house gets. Incombustible “logs” cover gas vents in the fireplace itself, with a burning fire behind glass doors. Radiant heat is given off from the fireplace providing the homeowner with a similar experience to an open fire.
Gas fireplaces have several useful functions, one of them being that it can help keep your heating bills low if you leave the heat off in the rest of the house while you’re using it. A lot of gas fireplaces make use of sealed combustion. Gaskets on the doors block out any air, allowing the fire to draw air from outside through a pipe. This supports combustion, preventing any warm air from the room being drawn out.
There are a whole lot of great brands that supply top quality gas furnaces, including Kozy Heat, Mendota, Montigo, Napoleon, Ortal USA, Regency, SOLAS, Town & Country, and Valor.Our gas fireplace service company works with each and every one of these brands and more.
WHEN TO CALL FOR SERVICE FOR YOUR GAS FIREPLACE
A whole lot of people with gas fireplaces in their homes will not think about getting them serviced until something goes wrong or something breaks, and at times like these it can often be a very inconvenient time to get your furnace serviced.
The first and foremost thing to keep in mind about servicing your gas fireplace is regularity. This doesn’t mean you need to have it serviced constantly, but an annual inspection and service for your gas fireplace should generally keep you in the clear and leave you with a well-functioning fireplace. Getting the entire system inspected once a year is ideal.
You may already know this, but there are multiple types of gas systems used for gas fireplaces and the servicing guidelines are different for each type. Some types have a pilot light which stays on all the time (called a standing pilot light) and with these the pilot assembly is most important.
Overall, setting up an annual check-up and service for your gas fireplace is advisable. This should keep your fireplace working nicely throughout the year. There may, of course, be other times when you’ll need to call for service or repairs, but an overall service once a year should have you covered.

** Please note we do not service B-Vent Gas fireplaces. These are free-standing stoves, inserts or zero clearance fireplaces that take in air from inside the room and use that as fuel for fire. They tend to backdraft and can cause severe carbon monoxide leaks in your home. B-Vent gas fireplaces can be very unsafe, especially for children under the age of 15.
