Many Minnesotans use gas-fueled appliances, including fireplaces, inserts, and stoves, to heat their homes in the Twin Cities. While its cleaner-burning fuel and less maintenance are significant advantages, gas appliances need annual service to ensure they are not a fire or health hazard. It will also prolong the useful life of your gas appliances, minimizing repairs and avoiding premature replacement.
Gas Service – Fireplaces, Inserts, & Heating Stoves
Gas fireplaces are efficient and clean burning, but they need regular care and maintenance to operate safely. Without an annual gas service, they risk leaking potentially hazardous carbon monoxide gas into your home. Additionally, dirt, pet hair, and other clogging particles can accumulate in the burner, reducing efficiency and producing higher energy bills. Also, regular service helps to lengthen the lifespan of your fireplace, insert, stove, and other heating appliances. It also makes costly repairs less likely, which translates into big savings!
These are some of the safety checks that our licensed gas technician performs during a service call:
- Perform a function test to ensure maximum efficiency.
- Check the oxygen and carbon monoxide (CO) levels.
- Examine gas valves, pipes, and fittings for rusting or leaking.
- Ensure the ignition system and pilot light are firing correctly.
- Inspect the gas log set for damage like cracks, dents, or chips.
- Look for excessive soot in the heating appliance and vents.
- Clean blocked burner ports.
- Check the wiring and blades on the fan blower motor.
- Inspect the chimney and venting system.
Gas Stove Service
From Independence to Lakeland, MN, many folks depend on their gas stove to keep their home warm and comfortable while reducing utility bills. The most important thing you can do to ensure it continues to work safely and efficiently is to have it serviced annually. Our gas service technician will clean your stove, inspect it for any damage, and make any necessary repairs. The technician will also ensure your ventilation system is expelling the exhaust correctly. This is important because a gas stove produces carbon monoxide, which can be deadly if it builds up in your home.
