Gas Fireplace Repair

It is imperative to pay close attention to the operation of your gas fireplace. Often, small signs can indicate malfunction before they become bigger problems.

If you notice any problems with your system, we recommend scheduling gas fireplace repair at the earliest opportunity. The following issues can indicate everything from poor ventilation to damaged gas lines that could spark a fire or release toxic fumes if left unresolved:

  • Problems with the pilot light: Clogged pilot lights, worn-out thermocouples, and faulty wiring can cause pilot light failure.
  • Rotten egg odors: If you smell rotten eggs near your gas fireplace, you likely have a natural gas leak that requires immediate attention.
  • Excessive soot buildup: Heavy soot within a gas fireplace indicates poor ventilation from a blocked flue pipe. Unusual soot accumulation could be caused by poor gas pressure, a malfunctioning gas valve, and infrequent maintenance.
  • Short-cycling: Your fireplace turning off and on frequently could be caused by faulty or dirty sensors, a thermostat issue, or a bad thermocouple or thermopile.

What Our Clients Are Saying
testimonial_image The tech was at my home less than 10 minutes and gone within 20 minutes due to having my A/C up and running. I really appreciate his response to my home and working with my son due to me being out of town, but we spoke on the phone.
testimonial_image The technician arrived promptly, wore a mask, was very courteous and professional. I am generally very satisfied with service by United Air Temp. In addition to good service (they repair well), it is easy to speak to a person, and promptly. Thank you.
testimonial_image Great service! I called because I was under the impression the AC was not working upstairs. Someone came on the same day, checked out the system, and ensured everything was working. He was polite, thorough, and friendly.
testimonial_image Tech was very attentive and professional. He went out his way to explain everything to me as he was doing it. I appreciated him keeping me informed.
testimonial_image The service technician was awesome! He spent the extra time necessary to ensure the leak in our system was fixed, the system fully recharged and everything was functioning as it should. He was extremely thorough and very professional. We are extremely pleased with the result!
