Gearing up for a festive holiday season? Between Christmas-themed decor, colorful lights, classic seasonal music, and more, getting into the spirit can be a fun and memorable experience. And what makes this time even more unforgettable? A cozy fireplace to warm the area and set the mood!
Now, if you’re ready to put your gas appliance to use, we urge you to get an inspection booked before doing so. We’ve noticed that many people who own a gas fireplace, stove, or insert assume that annual maintenance isn’t necessary due to the unit’s heightened efficiency and ease of use. This isn’t the case! While they don’t involve near the amount of work and upkeep of a wood-burning fireplace, your gas fireplace still needs yearly care from a certified professional.
At CinderBox Chimney Services, our qualified team is here to help. Count on us every step of the way for the personalized care and dedication you deserve.
Clogs & Carbon Monoxide
There are a lot of serious risks that go along with fireplace negligence, and carbon monoxide exposure is one of them. The facts behind this gas are that it is colorless, odorless, and basically impossible to detect. If you have a gas appliance in your home, investing in multiple carbon monoxide detectors is a must! Put them on every level of the house and close to the fireplace. This is often the only way people are warned of its presence.
While these devices play a big role in keeping homeowners and their families safer, the most preferred option is to avoid this gas in the home altogether. The best way to achieve this is to invest in professional upkeep. Your gas fireplace is still prone to experience clogs and build-up, and there is always the possibility of birds and other critters building nests in your flue. As you can imagine, these obstructions could easily lead hazardous fumes and poisonous gases entering your living space, so getting a trained eye on the job is definitely in your best interests.

Gas fireplaces are also known to experience problems with excess condensation and acidic water. If your venting system is malfunctioning and your appliance isn’t getting hot enough, water vapor will enter your flue and start wreaking havoc. Its acidic and corrosive nature will cause your structure to start crumbling and breaking down, and soon your system will unsafe for regular use.
