Considering a Gas Insert for Your Ballwin Home? Hire English Sweep, Inc. for the Job

The ease and convenience of gas is hard to beat! If you need a gas insert installed, join customers in Ballwin, Winchester, Loehr, Manchester, Ellisville, Clarkson Valley, Fern Glen, Mountain Ridge, Castlewood, Wildwood, Olivette, Lincoln Beach, Twin Oaks, Morschels, Pettys Hill, and the surrounding areas by relying on us.

Why are many making the switch to gas inserts? Well, these systems tend to excel in efficiency, which is a big requirement for most looking for a new appliance. More heat output into your living space gives you the power to turn down the thermostat and lower your monthly heating bills during those cold winter nights, which is a huge draw.

Gas inserts are incredibly easy to operate and adjust, too. Turning them on and off takes just a second, so you aren’t ever forced to build or put out a fire, and changing the temperature is easy – just turn the knob to your preferred setting! This also means less mess, no hauling or storing wood, and no scooping ash piles.

Finally, gas logs nowadays look incredibly realistic, so it will still look and feel like you’re burning a real wood log fire in your home. That same warm and cozy aesthetic, just without the hassle!

That said, none of these benefits are guaranteed if you don’t invest in professional installation services and regular maintenance. That’s where we come in… Call or book online with our experts today.

How Often Should I Service My Gas Fireplace?

So, gas fireplaces, wood-burning stoves, pellet inserts, gas or wood fireplace inserts, retrofit fireplaces… we’re going to tell you the same thing for them all, and this advice is based on the recommendation of the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA):

Schedule a chimney and fireplace inspection once every year.

It doesn’t matter what fuel type you have – yep, even if it’s a clean-burning gas appliance. Yearly maintenance completed by a professional is the only way to ensure your system is operating safely and efficiently for the upcoming burn season.

What Can Go Wrong With a Gas Fireplace?

So… why are annual inspections the recommended approach for appliances that don’t produce creosote and soot buildup? First and foremost, let’s slow down. Gas fireplace chimneys actually can experience buildup in the form of nesting materials and other outdoor debris. This is always going to be a possibility, especially if one of your protective components (like your chimney cap) is damaged or has gone missing.

In addition, gas fireplaces still produce byproducts that can break a system down if something isn’t fitted right or if some type of freak incident occurred. And damage in a gas fireplace can lead to gas leaks and carbon monoxide poisoning – both potentially deadly if not addressed right away.
