​2. Do I really need to service my gas fireplace?
Yes, gas fireplace manufacturers recommend an annual service. Cleaning, inspection, and testing.

3. How often should I clean the glass?
The glass should be cleaned at least once a season. If the glass is not cleaned often enough, the white film will bake into the pores of the glass and will be permanently stained.

4. What is the white stuff on the glass?
The white film on the glass is from combustion gases. In older gas fireplaces silicone was used when the fireplace was built, and the silicone may be giving off gases. Sometimes the top and sides of the fire box develop a white powder, you could call it white soot. This white soot can be vacuumed out during a routine service.

5. Why is the pilot light so large?
In gas fireplaces built in resent years, pilot light is large by design. The pilot light burns in two or three directions. It burns on a thermocouple, a thermopile, or a electronic sensing rod, the third arm onto the burner. On all pilot lights, the pilot should burn blue. When the pilot light gets dirty it gets larger and burns yellow. When you have a large yellow pilot you need the unit serviced.

6. What is the fuzzy stuff on the burner?
This material is called glowing embers or rock wool. When installed correctly it can add a dramatic appearance to the burner. It can give the appearance of a ember bed.

7. How long do the glowing embers last?
I have found that the embers last many years but they gradually lose there effect. I always replace the glowing embers when I service a gas fireplace.

8. The inside of the fireplace does not look very nice anymore, is there anything you can do about it?
Yes, what I like to do is repaint the inside of the fireplace if needed and with flat black paint only, no other color. Over the years some gas fireplaces can even bake off the paint. On some fireplaces the white film develops on the inside walls. In both cases, repainting the fire box with high temperature paint makes your fireplace look much nicer. I paint only with flat black and only if needed.

9. Can I install a blower in my gas fireplace?
Yes, in most cases. In most gas fireplaces blowers are an option that can be installed, but only if you have electricity already there.

10. Sometimes the fireplace goes out, what is going on?
Usually this is an electrical problem. It could be from electrical connections that have built up resistance in them. Or it also could be from a dirty pilot light. A qualified technician can pinpoint the problem and correct it.

11. Can I install a thermostat on my gas fireplace?
Yes, if you have a fireplace approved for the use of a wired or remote thermostat.

12. Can I install a remote control on my gas fireplace?
In most cases yes. It depends on the type of control valve your gas fireplace was built with. Usually if you have some kind of a on-off switch you can have one installed.
