Quick Gas-Heating 101
If you’re new to the fireplace world, or if you recently moved into a home and you don’t know exactly what kind of fireplace you have, here’s a quick overview of the two gas types.
These are also called manufactured fireplaces, are factory-built units that can be installed in just about any wall in a home.
Gas fireplace inserts
Fireplace Inserts are designed to be placed into the firebox of an existing masonry, or open, fireplace.
Both appliances bring fuel in through a gas line and use pilot lights, burners, ignition switches and other parts to operate. It’s common for gas fireplaces and inserts to include faux fireplace log sets, rocks or other decorative materials through which their flames rise.
Gas Fireplace Inspections
Gas heating appliances are pretty simple in their construction and don’t generate a lot of residue and creosote, the way wood-burning fireplaces do. But gas units still need regular inspections.
Ye Olde Brit offers thorough gas fireplace and insert inspections that will ensure a safe appliance and allow you to make needed repairs as soon as they’re necessary.
- Gas lines that run into the home and the firebox
- All valves, pipes and cylinders associated with the appliance
- Long-term residue buildup
- Cleanliness of the vent system
- Proper firing of the ignition system
- Fireplace fan and burner assemblies
- Pilot light function
- Glass door integrity and seal
Our technicians cover these and all other important areas and components of your fireplace or insert system. We recommend scheduling an inspection once a year.
Gas Fireplace Repairs
Well-built gas appliances usually perform well for many years, but they won’t keep running forever. Over time, it’s not uncommon for things to break or wear out. When this happens, prompt repairs are needed.
Our inspectors are trained gas fireplace repair techs and can resolve any fireplace or insert problems, usually at the time of the inspection. This could involve repairing or replacing parts, depending on their condition.
