Fireplace Safety Issues and Suggestions to Help Prevent Accident

Here is short list of safety issues you should know. Before you run your fireplace for the first time, have it checked, and thoroughly read the owners' handbook. Clean away any dust or debris that may have built up during construction, i.e. wood chips or drywall dust which could damage the motor, burners or the fan. See to it your fire detector is running correctly, and also consider installing a carbon monoxide detector near your fireplace.

Wait 5 minutes before trying to ignite the pilot light if it goes out, this helps to make sure any gas that might be in the air will have dissipated. Keep children from getting too near the fireplace when it is being used, as skin or clothing can easily burn if pushed against the glass face. Prior to cleaning or wiping down the fireplace, guarantee that it has totally cooled down. Also, make a point of frequently checking the outdoor location around the vent to make sure there is no build up of debris.

If you suspect anything is wrong with the way your fireplace is running, it is best to act fast and call the gas company or your fireplace provider, and have it looked at right away. Things to be familiar with consist of any uncommon smells, or if the flames appear to be jumping or sputtering in an uncommon way. Any maintenance on either the venting system or firebox ought to be done by a qualified professional. I recommend you keep a comprehensive record of all inspections and service work that is done on your fireplace, and it might also be a good idea to keep all receipts, guarantees, and all related documents in one folder for the ease of reference.Go To This Page\nHeating Repair Phoenix Arizona
