Leonard & Sons — The Company To Call For Gas Log Service & Installation Throughout Chicagoland
Gas logs are a great addition to your home because they offer fire in a much more convenient manner than a traditional wood fireplace, but they still require expert installation and some basic maintenance and care. If you’re thinking of investing in gas logs or you want to make sure your existing gas log set is working properly and ready for another season, we can help.
Why Do You Need To Have Your Gas Logs Professionally Installed?
Gas logs produce carbon monoxide, which is an odorless, tasteless, and invisible gas that can lead to a myriad of health problems and even death. That’s why it’s imperative that your gas logs be installed properly. If any mistakes are made during fireplace installation, you’re put at risk, and your gas logs may not work properly. But when you have your gas logs installed by an experienced and Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA) certified chimney professional, you can be confident your gas logs will be installed exactly as directed and will work as safely and as efficiently as they were designed to.
What Kind Of Maintenance Do Gas Logs Need?
- Inspection — Every year, you should have your gas logs inspected by a certified professional, just as you would your wood burning fireplace or stove. During an inspection, you’ll have your gas valves, pilot light, gas lines, connections, and chimney checked. Your tech will be looking for any problems, damage, or areas of concern, as well as any buildup.
- Cleaning — Although gas logs don’t require the level of cleaning that wood-burning appliances do, they still require some brushing and removal of dust or dirt.
- Repair — Gas logs are relatively low maintenance, but components can occasionally break or fail, and when they do, they should be repaired ASAP. Some of the repairs we can help with include gas line leaks, broken valves, and burner issues. Whatever repairs you need, you can trust Leonard & Sons to take care of it for you.
- Ember & Decorative Glass Replacement — Sometimes you simply need embers or other decorative elements like fire glass replaced, and we can help with that too. We’ll make sure your gas logs look great, year after year.
