With our reliable services, you’ll have peace of mind because all problems are addressed before they become safety hazards.

Common Fireplace Problems

While Kentucky has a moderate climate, it does have abundant rainfall. This means that there are lots of cold days and nights that could necessitate not just artificial heat but natural one – like from a fireplace. However, it’s given that old fireplaces do suffer from some common problems, which effectively renders them inoperable or unusable. These are the most common fireplace problems that we encounter when we handle maintenance and repairs:

  • Back puffing. This problem is perhaps one of the most common and most annoying ones that you can possibly encounter, especially if you have a wood-fired fireplace. Back puffing is when your fireplace lets smoke into your room and not straight into the chimney. While the smoke may be odorless, the carbon monoxide that it produces is considered lethal when inhaled in large volume. With such problem, we usually install smoke guards and weatherproof exhaust fans to help such smoke up into the chimney top.

  • Defective pilot light. For gas fireplaces, damaged pilot lights mean that the fireplace won’t turn on. Accordingly, we check the valve and gas tank for any issues; if there’s none, we inspect the pilot light to determine if it is already busted. If it is, then we simply replace it with a better quality one. We also perform a careful inspection of other fireplace parts.

  • Gas leakage. Leaking gas is one of the most explosive problems you can face – literally. In an enclosed environment, gas leakage can lead the whole place to explode or burn accidentally. To prevent this, we could check your gas fireplace for leaking parts and to immediately replace such.

  • Defective burner. If your fireplace’s burner won’t turn on, it may have a weak wiring or a weak voltage supply. In such case, we will just install a new wiring system to fix the problem and get your fireplace burning in no time.
