Gas logs are becoming more and more popular as a way to provide supplemental heat. One of the reasons they are so popular is because they are so low maintenance. However, to keep a set of gas logs working efficiently and safely, it is important to have them professionally serviced once a year. Since gas logs tend to work well without a lot of problems, this annual maintenance check can be easy for homeowners to forget. Neglecting to schedule this service appointment can lead to problems with this gas hearth appliance, including problems that are dangerous to you and your family.

If you live in the Nashville area, Ashbusters wants to help you make sure your gas logs are functioning properly. Our expert technicians have been certified by the National Fireplace Institute (NFI) as Gas Specialists. This means you can trust us to safely work on gas hearth appliances. We would like to answer a few of the most frequently asked questions about our gas logs maintenance and repair services.
Ashbusters has been asked this question many times over our years of working on fireplaces and chimneys. Many people believe if their gas logs are functioning without any problems, they do not need to be professionally serviced. However, there could be unseen issues that can lead to big problems. In order to work safely, gas hearth appliances need to meet specific venting requirements.
If the size of the flue is too large for the set of gas logs, your chimney could suffer from corrosion damage. This is due to the condensation of water vapor that results from the lack of sufficient heat to carry it away and out of the chimney. You could also have loose connections from the gas logs to the chimney. The loose connection may lead to a possible carbon monoxide leak into your home. We will make sure that everything is properly installed when we service your gas logs.
What are the most common problems with gas logs?
Ashbusters gets more calls from our customers about problems with the pilot light and the burner than any other issue with gas logs. We can easily solve these problems, thanks to our experience and training from the NFI as well as from the Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA).
