Fireplace Maintenance Tips
Things always work better when you take the time to look after them and a gas fireplace Toronto is no exception to that rule. Remember the fuel that you’re using is natural gas, one of the safest and most cost efficient available today, and with a few simple maintenance rules under your belt, you’ll enjoy comfortable warm fireside moments for years to come.
You’ll need to clean your unit from time to time and the first step centers around safety. Remember that you’ll need to turn the gas off before you start working on the control and burner areas and when it comes time to relight after you’re done, referring to the owner’s manual is the proper route to take. With a little care and preplanning, you can work on these compartments of your gas fireplace Toronto once a year and enjoy peace of mind knowing that your fireside chats are held in safe surroundings.
You should never try to clean the unit when it’s hot. After the door has cooled down it should be wiped with a damp cloth but never with an abrasive cleaner. When the glass starts to look cloudy, it should be gone over with an appropriate glass fireplace cleaner to restore it to its previous transparency.
Make sure to check the burner on occasion. The flame must be steady and not floating. If there are any problems, you’ll need to contact qualified trades people to have a look. Remember that it’s always good to be on the safe side when it comes to any kind of fireplace Toronto product, and having a trustworthy carbon monoxide detector on hand is a good practice to keep the safety of your family a top priority. Combustibles need to be stored a safe distance away as well.
