Gas Fireplace Safety by Treat’s Heating & Cooling

Fall is upon us and people like to utilize their gas fireplaces.  Maintenance is critical to make sure that all components are running as they should.  Here are a few things to look out for before you start your fireplace.

Logs & Glass: Your fireplace should never be used if you have broken logs and/or glass.  It is imperative that you have a professional fix these before using your fireplace or calling for maintenance.

Vents: Vents should be checked on an annual basis for signs of any damage.  Areas that are exposed to the elements should be inspected for rust and holes.

Chimney Cap: Birds often build nests in the chimney, it is a good idea to inspect the chimney with a flashlight to look for any obstructions.

Your Gas Fireplace should be inspected annually by a trained professional.  Call Treat’s Heating & Cooling for your Gas Fireplace maintenance.  360.825.0800
