We recommend turning your pilot off to reduce wear and tear. Summer time though is the most ideal time to maintain the fireplace, as you have time to have issues fixed before the winter months starts rolling in. In Edmonton, that can be any month!

  • Why does my pilot light keep dying?

Usually due to a weak thermopile or low gas pressure. Best to have a technician diagnose to ensure safe and efficient operation.

  • I can’t get rid of the white build-up on the glass enclosure.

We are equipped with the proper non-toxic & non flammable cleaner to remove this for you. We can also perform our standard service and safety checks as well.

  • Why is my fireplace not turning on at all?

This can be due to many different reasons depending on your fireplace type, model, and age. The best thing to do is call us and have the experts take care of the rest.

  • My fireplace smells like eggs.

This is not a question, but an excellent observation. What you have is likely gas leak. Turn your gas supply off to your fireplace if possible and book us immediately to ensure this leak is remedied.

  • Can I just buy part? I know the pilot assembly is what I need.

As our due diligence for our customers, we must provide a complete and full system check when servicing your fireplace. Although it may seem that only one part is required, there may be other areas that require attention to improve safe operation. We are able to provide parts along with a full service only.

  • What type of fireplace do I have?

If you have a burner, you most definitely have gas. A vent lever, my indicated natural wood burning. Remote with faux flame is often electric. We can service them all!

  • What maintenance do I need?

Gas fireplaces for example emits carbon and settles on the enclosure, parts and glass. This must be regularly maintained to prevent part failure. To ensure safe operation though, a thorough inspection annually or first-time use is highly recommended. Different types, all require unique set of checks. 

  • The power is out. Can I still use my gas fireplace?

That’s terrible news. I’m sorry to hear. Good news is that yes you can! (in most cases with gas and natural wood of course) Gas fireplaces are typically equipped with thermopiles that convert heat to power the control system. So long as your gas is available, you can get that gas fireplace going. 

  • I have a gas fireplace. Can I burn real wood in it?

Please no. Gas fireplaces are not designed for wood burning. If you do this, you can cause serious damage to your fireplace and imminent danger to the occupants of the home.

  • I smell a strange dry burning smell.

Likely just dust burning off if your fireplace is new or hasn’t been operated in a long time. We would recommend an inspection just to ensure all is fine. Try to clean the stack and check your vents. A bit of TLC goes a long way.
