Types of Fireplace Maintenance

Different types of fireplaces require different maintenance. Each one functions differently and provides different benefits. At ComfortAire, we install, service, and repair all of them, including electric, gas, and wood-burning fireplaces.

Electric fireplaces don’t emit heat or require heavy-duty cleaning, so they only need to be inspected for proper function and dust or dirt buildup.

If you have a gas fireplace, your maintenance will include checking all parts’ proper functioning and inspection of the outside vent and burner ignition. We’ll also let you know if any parts are worn or need replacement.

For a wood-burning fireplace, maintenance will include a chimney inspection and fireplace cleaning to remove ash and soot buildup.

Why Schedule Fireplace Maintenance?

When you schedule annual fireplace maintenance, you’re doing more than cleaning it and ensuring proper function—you’re also extending its life. While fireplaces are built to last a lifetime and withstand elements like anything else in your home, they do need attention as they age. Over time, leaks, problems with vents, and connections within the hearth can occur. But when you schedule annual maintenance, our team can identify and fix these issues before they require more serious repairs.

And if you need even more reasons to put fireplace maintenance on the calendar, regular service also ensures your fireplace is burning efficiently and safely.

How Often Should You Schedule Fireplace Maintenance?

If you’re the type of person who likes to take advantage of your fireplace all winter long, then it’s best to schedule maintenance annually. If you tend to only turn your fireplace on a few times each season, then you can schedule your maintenance once every two years.
