Annual Maintenance
All Gas Hearth Products Need This Service



Annual Maintenance should be done in the Spring/Summer months when your fireplace isn't already in use. Make sure and call us early this year!



Gas stoves, fireplaces and gas logs should be cleaned and serviced on an annual basis to keep them operating at peak performance. A simple cleaning and tune-up can help avoid costly repairs later and provides you the peace of mind that your hearth appliance is ready for that next chilly evening. This service typically involves:


  • Checking all gas connections for leaks
  • Cleaning any lint and dust build-up around valves and controls
  • Inspecting for signs of wear
  • Fine tune the appliance for optimal flame appearance and fuel efficiency
  • Removal of logs; clean lint and carbon build-up from burner and logs.( A dirty burner and dirty logs produce poor flame quality, difficulty lighting your appliance, irregular flame pattern, excessive soot buildup) 
  • Inspect and clean hot air vents, grills, louvers
  • Check gaskets for proper sealing
  • Inspect venting system for blockages, draft problems, leaks and excessive carbon accumulation
  • Clean glass of any soot buildup and corrosive salts
  • Check millivolt reading of pilot flame and adjust to factory specifications
  • Check safety clearances
  • Review proper operating procedures where needed
