How to Tell Something Is Wrong With Your Fireplace
It can help to know what the signs are of a malfunction in order to determine whether you need to get repairs for your fireplace. Read on to learn some common indicators that you have a fireplace in need of help.
Inability to ignite a flame
However your gas fireplace is set up to run, it should be relatively easy to ignite the fire. If you are flipping the switch or turning the key to get things started and discovering that you can’t get a fire started without major effort, then you are better off having your fireplace checked out.
The ongoing smell of gas
Have you turned off your fireplace but you can still pick up on the scent of gas coming from it? You may have a small gas leak in your fireplace which can be dangerous. If you think that you have an issue in your fireplace that is allowing gas to leak out, we strongly suggest having it examined and repaired ASAP.
Lack of gas supply
On the other hand, you may be faced with a total lack of fuel. One of the biggest conveniences of gas-powered fireplaces is that you don’t have to get any wood to burn. Instead, just turn on the gas and ignite it and you are good to go. So a lack of gas supply is a big problem. If this is your situation, make sure that your home’s gas supply hasn’t been turned off first. Then, call for repairs!
