When you have a gas-fueled heating appliance, you are able to enjoy a warm fire without having to deal with the chores that are necessary with a wood-burning fireplace. You can even start the fire by pushing a button on a remote control from your couch! However, just because your gas fireplace, insert, stove, or logs burns cleanly and safely does not mean you do not need to have it serviced and inspected every year. Olde Towne Chimney & Fireplace Sales is proud to offer our gas appliance inspection and repair services to the residents of the Louisville area, and we would like to let you know that the summer is a great time to schedule an appointment with us. Our experienced and certified gas fireplace technicians are not as busy in the summer, so you will have an easier time scheduling your appointment on the date that is most convenient for you. Even better, your gas appliance will be ready to use in the fall. We would like to tell you more about why our gas appliance inspection and repair services are so important.
In order to be sure your gas appliance is working safely and efficiently, you should have it inspected once a year. You could have loose connections from your appliance to the chimney, which can put you at a higher risk for carbon monoxide leaks. Another major problem that Olde Towne Chimney & Fireplace Sales often finds is that the flue size does not properly match the appliance. The Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA) warns that if the flue is too large for the appliance, you could have condensation and draft problems that could damage your chimney and possibly pose a safety hazard. Many gas fireplace inserts are much smaller than masonry fireplace openings, and if your insert was not professionally installed, you could have this sizing issue. We can create a correctly-sized flue with a stainless steel liner that will have your appliance working much more efficiently and safely.
Although it may seem easy to make small repairs to a gas fireplace appliance, it is not very safe to take this job into your own hands. These appliances are very delicate, and a component that is just even a millimeter off can lead to a gas leak or another venting issue. You can trust our technicians at Olde Towne Chimney & Fireplace Sales because we have all been certified by the CSIA and the National Fireplace Institute (NFI) to service and repair gas appliances. If something is wrong with your appliance, we will diagnose the problem and safely repair it for you.
