Gas fireplace, gas log set and vent free gas products need regular professional service by a qualified technician. Manufactures recommend professional maintenance on an annual basis. To choose a qualified gas fireplace service technician, get recommendations from friends and neighbors then make sure they are NFI certified (nficertified.org) as well as licensed, bonded and insured. Ask rather the company does a complete cleaning, safety inspection and certification of your gas fireplace. This is to ensure there are no gas leaks or back drafting of combustion gases into the house that could produce carbon monoxide. Some companies just clean the glass and add new embers. This makes the fireplace look good but it doses not make it safe.
NOTE: Carbon Monoxide (CO) is a colorless, odorless and tasteless gas formed by gas-fired appliances that are not operating properly. Symptoms of CO poising may include headaches, dizziness, nausea, drowsiness and flu like symptoms. If you suspect that you may have a CO problem immediately evacuate the home and call 911 from a neighbors house and seek medical attention if CO is found to be present in the building.
Gas Fireplace Repair Specialists recommends a CO detector to be installed in any home that has a gas fired appliance.
