Just like we all need a yearly physical exam to ensure we’re healthy, your fireplace also needs some sort of annual inspection to check that everything’s functioning properly. Your fireplace works hard during the year to keep your home warm and cozy, and it deserves a bit of attention after a long season. An annual inspection can catch any issues quickly, and address them before they turn into a bigger problem. Having your inspection done before the winter begins can also give you peace of mind knowing that your fireplace isn’t going to give you troubles during the coldest days of the year when you really need it!
What to Expect from an Annual Fireplace Inspection
At New England Hearth & Home, we offer annual inspections on nearly every brand of gas fireplaces. When a technician comes to your home to inspect your system, the first step is looking at the exterior to ensure the glass is not chipped or cracked, and that the framework is in good shape. Next, we’ll check to make sure the interior gas ignition under the log is lighting, and that the heat output is functioning properly. We’ll also thoroughly clean any debris and dirt that has accumulated in your appliance. When debris builds up it can block vents, which is why cleaning it at least annually is imperative. Our knowledgeable technicians will also be able to detect any issues that may need repairs and bring them to your attention.
