Just like with any other piece of equipment around the home, annual maintenance of your gas fireplace is important. Not only to enjoy the expected lifespan of your fireplace, but also to ensure a healthy living space.
Over time, ceramic logs inside of your fireplace may begin to deteriorate and become stuck to the sites of your insert making them difficult to be removed. Catching this early on could save you money. Cleaning the glass shield and checking for chips or cracked glass that could lead to injury or even affect the heat output of your gas fireplace. Also, debris tends to become trapped inside of the flue, air vents and chimney. It is very important to have these areas cleaned and debris removed otherwise airflow could become limited, forcing unsafe smoke or gas back into your home.
