A gas fireplace can be an effective appliance to help keep you warm on a cold winter night. However, unless you properly maintain the fireplace, it may not run at peak efficiency or might even fail to run. Scheduled maintenance keeps your gas furnace working correctly and efficiently, reducing the need for untimely repairs.
Gas Fireplaces Should Be Cleaned Regularly
One way a gas fireplace can be damaged is to allow dust, dirt or other debris to get inside of it. Over time, a coating of dust or dirt could affect the pilot light, preventing the furnace from starting. In addition, dust buildup can affect other parts and place unnecessary strain on the furnace, reducing its lifespan. Without proper cleaning, the furnace is forced to overwork and may use more energy.
Schedule Regular Fireplace Inspections
Although cleaning a gas fireplace isn’t especially difficult, it does need to be done correctly. One of the easiest ways to ensure that the job is done right is to contact our professionals at NORCO Heating & Air Conditioning in Spokane, WA.
