Houston Gas Fireplace Repair Service
Gas fireplaces have quickly become an excellent home heating alternative to traditional wood-burning fireplaces. They are clean burning, provide “instant on” heat and require very little maintenance. All the comforts of real fire at less cost! But with any gas appliance, there are precautions that need to be taken, especially when your gas fireplace is not working properly. If the “instant on” doesn’t work or the heat is weak, call Kingwood Air Repair for your gas fireplace repair.
Troubleshooting the Issue
Whether your pilot light has gone out, you need it re-lit for the fall and winter season, or you need some help troubleshooting your gas fireplace issues, we can help. While it may seem simple, an extinguished pilot light is often the culprit for a non-functioning gas fireplace. Sometimes it just needs to be lit, other times it may not be able to stay lit or won’t light at all.
If your pilot light is on but the main burner flame will not kick into gear, there could be several issues that need attention. If the main burner flame turns on initially but then goes out, be sure to check that your pilot light is staying lit. If your pilot light is on but no main flame, four different things could be bad: the wall switch, the pilot flame, the thermopile or the main control valve. After the pilot light, a bad wall switch is the next most common issue with gas fireplaces. Over the years the wall connection can get dirty, corroded or broken.
