Gas Logs/Gas Appliance Servicing

The Hearth, Patio and Barbecue Association recommends that gas hearth appliances be professionally serviced every year to ensure top performance, and that all vents for vented appliances be inspected on an annual basis by a chimney sweep certified by the Chimney Safety Institute of America.

The HPBA also recommends the installation of a carbon monoxide detector with all gas hearth products. Carbon monoxide is a colorless, odorless gas which is given off by gas burning appliances.

Barnhill Chimney Company stands behind the products we sell and install. That’s why we offer a full program of gas appliance maintenance. Schedule a gas appliance service anytime during the year and one of our guild-certified technicians will:

Inspect your appliance for functionality:

  • Check for natural gas leaks in the fireplace area
  • Check for carbon monoxide buildup while the appliance is running
  • Make sure the pilot light (if applicable) is burning properly
  • Check any remote, device, or backup batteries
  • Clean the logs of dust and/or carbon deposits
  • Clean all burner ports
  • Clean the pilot assembly
  • Test logs for proper function

Fully visually inspect the external chimney, internal flue, and firebox:

  • Ensure that no vents are blocked
  • Confirm structural soundness of system
  • Make sure proper clearances to combustibles are maintained
