A gas fireplace offers the best of both worlds. It has the homey warmth and the cozy ambience without any of the mess of a wood-burning fireplace—soot, ash, and bark bits, oh, my! Your gas fireplace is also so much easier to start up. There’s no scrunching newspaper, carefully laying out kindling, and trying to get it all to catch. Just flip a switch and the fire’s going.
With all that ease of use, it’s easy to forget that gas fireplaces do encounter problems sometimes. We’d like to remind you that if you do notice an issue with your gas fireplace, you should take it seriously and have it repaired. Here’s what to look for.
