Gas Fireplace – the Benefits of an Annual Inspection

A lot of people forego their annual gas fireplace inspection in hopes of also foregoing the cost associated with such a checkup. But doing so could lead to more costly maintenance and repairs, leaving a large dent in your bank account, and/or removing one of your main heating sources over colder months.

A neglected appliance of any kind can fall prey to disaster, so by having your gas fireplace inspected annually, you can ensure the seasons in which you utilize it will be hassle-free.

Gas Fireplace – Vents, Flue and Chimney

Despite your fireplace not being wood burning, your vents, flue and chimney still need to be maintained for safety reasons and optimal air quality.
