How Much Is Gas Fireplace Service?

Annual gas fireplace cleaning service and inspection costs vary. Your total cost depends on the type of gas fireplace you have, how it’s vented and what condition it’s in. Gas fireplace maintenance typically costs betweeen $300 – $400.

Importance of Gas Log Fireplace Maintenance

Gas fireplaces, like wood-burning fireplaces, gather dirt and debris over time. This can cause them to burn inefficiently, accumulate flammable materials and even develop hazardous leaks.

Even though gas fireplaces and stoves are low-maintenance, registered gas log professionals should still inspect them regularly. Licensed fireplace experts are trained to detect problems such as obstructions or venting cracks, corrosion, and firebox damage, which can all start a fire.

How to Maintain Your Gas Fireplace Properly

In addition to scheduling gas fireplace cleaning service each year, you should take the following actions to keep your fireplace in excellent condition and save money on future repairs:

Your gas fireplace’s instruction manual explains how to use and maintain the gas unit for the most reliable operation. Knowing your duties now could help you save time and money later.

If you can’t find your gas log manual, visit your fireplace provider’s website online and find a copy. Search for helpful gas fireplace service and maintenance videos if you’re unsure how to accomplish one of the maintenance activities recommended in your fireplace manual.

Combustible and flammable materials like paper, children’s toys, dog toys and furniture should always be a safe distance from your fireplace to reduce fire risks. Installing a fireplace safety barrier or screen is an effective way to protect pets and household members.

You should check your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors’ operation and change the batteries at least once a year. Carbon monoxide is colorless and odorless, so it’s typically not noticeable until household members experience carbon monoxide poisoning symptoms such as weakness, dizziness, blurred vision, migraines and confusion.

An effective way to prevent fires and carbon monoxide poisoning is to schedule professional installation and inspection. You should contact a certified gas log service contractor to install, inspect and clean your fireplace, and you must always follow your fireplace’s user manual instructions when using it. Smoke Alert is the most qualified licensed gas fireplace contractor in the North Carolina and Georgia regions, and we are dedicated to helping you enjoy a warm, cozy home safely.

When you replace your carbon monoxide and smoke detectors annually, you should also replace your gas log fireplace’s receiver batteries. In the event of a power outage, a battery-operated gas fireplace receiver supplies backup power, enabling you to light your fireplace by pressing a button.

Use a gas insert or gas fireplace with a receiver so that it can operate properly during storm seasons. If your fireplace has a remote control, ensure you update the batteries in your remote!
