Common problems you might be experiencing with your fireplace include:

  • The unit refuses to turn on
  • Gas smell or excessive odours coming from your unit.
  • Pilot light misfires and refuses to ignite
  • The pilot light continually goes out or never stays lit
  • Your unit becomes extremely hot
  • The fireplace flame comes on and goes off after a few seconds
  • The fireplace flame is lifting on the burner
  • White residue on fireplace glass
  • The fireplace fan stopped working
  • The burners are difficult to ignite

Gas inserts provide a consistently efficient source of heat and can do wonders for enhancing the look of an otherwise drab masonry fireplace.

Fireplace Maintenance & Safety Inspections

While a wood-burning unit requires no yearly inspections, you should have a professional inspect and maintain a gas-powered unit periodically. Preventative maintenance can save you money from costly repairs. Even more important is to ensure the safety of your home with a gas unit that’s burning efficiently.

Maintenance and inspections are an easy way to maximize the life of your unit and keep things in working order. Our maintenance and inspection service in Markham include the following:

  • Clean and inspect pilot lights and burners for efficiency or ignition delays.
  • Run tests to make sure that your safety shut-off is working.
  • Glass and gasket seal assessment and inspection.
  • Inspect and test the various functions and parts such as the on/off switch, remote, and thermostat.
  • We clean the burners, glass, mantle, control compartment and firebox.
  • Your unit undergoes a thorough inspection and is made code compliant.

Frequently Asked Questions

Gas-powered units are quickly becoming the majority choice for fireplaces in Markham. There are a lot of questions about maintenance and care, and we welcome any questions you may have before you commit to maintenance or repair services. Here are a few questions we get asked on a regular basis:

Manufacturers will recommend that you have your unit inspected once a year to remain code compliant. While we agree with this in most cases, if you don’t use your fireplace regularly you can get away with doing an inspection every three years.

Absolutely. You can clean the glass, logs, igniter, and burners. When it comes to safety checks, however, that is the bonus of having your gas-powered unit inspected. Not everyone can effectively assess the functionality of the various components. That’s best left a professional.

Yes. Gas logs produce buildup that needs to be cleaned at least once a year. The build-up from a gas-powered unit isn’t the same as a wood-burning fireplace however there is a residue build-up that should be removed annually. Do not use cleaning products and wipe the log with a damp lint-free rag.

The cost for a gas fireplace tune-up can change depending on the area you’re in, the size of your fireplace, the condition it’s in as well as whether you’re calling with an emergency. Most companies charge between $100-$250 but the price will vary based on these factors.

Yes, absolutely. Not only does it need to be inspected to ensure the safe burning of fuel but the unit itself needs to be cleaned regularly (including the gas logs). Regular maintenance of your gas fireplace will ensure safe and efficient burning as well as longer life.

Most gas fireplaces are expected to last at least 10 to 15 years but with the proper maintenance many owners can stretch out the life of their unit for much longer. The flipside is without the proper maintenance your fireplace may not last the 10-year mark.

If your fireplace has been fully vented and has the proper safety glass installed and sealed there should be no limit on the time it can be left on. It’s advisable to check with the manufacturer if you plan on running your gas unit continuously.

The most common problems that cause a gas fireplace to go out are the sensors that control the gas delivered to the pilot light (thermocouple) and the sensor that maintains the gas flow once the unit is on (thermopile). The problem is often solved by cleaning or replacing these components.

We used City Energy to install a furnace during a renovation. We got quotes from 3 companies and City Energy was the most cost competitive and creative in configuring new ductwork in a tight space. We have used them twice for repairs on another furnace and both times they arrived quickly and carried out the repair professionally without trying to upsell us on a new furnace. Highly recommend.
