Prepare for the Season: Annual Fireplace Maintenance
Annual fireplace maintenance to prepare for the season
If you’re the planning type at all, you’ve probably started thinking about preparing your home for winter. You might even have a “to do” list, of sorts. If you have a gas fireplace, it wants to be on that list.
October is National Fireplace Month, as recognized by the Hearth Patio and Barbecue Association. Year after year, your gas fireplace quietly delivers ambiance and warmth for you, your family and your friends, never demanding much attention. We think the best way to celebrate National Fireplace Month is to give it the tender loving care it deserves.
Gas fireplaces are quite low-maintenance. But there are a few things you should do annually to ensure your fireplace – the heart of your home – is prepared to operate its best all season long. This requires just a few steps, and you can download our simple, step-by-step gas fireplace maintenance checklist here.
Performing annual maintenance on your gas fireplace won’t take long, but if you’re pressed for time, your local Heatilator dealer will be happy to do it for you. When it’s done, you will feel great knowing your fireplace is in tip-top shape, and we are pretty sure your fireplace will love you back – all season long.
