Gas Logs Need Love, Too — Trust Service & Repair To C&C Chimney
It’s a common misconception that gas logs and the chimneys that vent them (if they’re vented) don’t need to be inspected and serviced. While gas is typically a clean-burning fuel, some light buildup can occur, and nesting materials, animals, debris that can’t be seen with a flashlight from the base of your chimney, and broken dampers can clog the flue and render it ineffective.
While a clogged or blocked flue is dangerous for any appliance, it’s particularly dangerous for a gas appliance because of carbon monoxide.
Gas logs produce carbon monoxide when they burn, and if that gas isn’t able to pass through the chimney and out of the home, you and your family could be in serious danger. And because carbon monoxide is odorless, colorless, and invisible, without a carbon monoxide detector nearby, you wouldn’t even know CO2 was flowing back into your air supply.
Some of the effects of carbon monoxide poisoning include the following symptoms:
- shortness of breath
- and in some cases, death
By scheduling annual inspections for your gas logs and chimney, you’ll know if blockages are present and if a chimney cleaning, chimney cap, or new damper is needed. You’ll also know if any log components are broken or in need of replacement, or if there are gas leaks or other concerns.
Of course, gas logs also need to be cleaned from time to time. But no matter what your gas logs need, you can count on C&C Chimney to take care of it.
