J.C. Fireplaces vacuums logs and underneath the burner to clean out soot, ash, and other debris. This reduces the risk of fires burning too quickly or releasing potentially harmful gases while the fireplace is in use. A clean fireplace also looks more attractive and helps the unit operate more efficiently. For professional vacuuming done correctly the first time, give us a call!
The look of embers, (the glowing coals left behind when natural wood fires burn logs that fall apart), can be created for gas fireplaces as well. If your fireplace needs ember replacement, J.C. Fireplaces will remove the old embers (real or synthetic) and refill it with new ember products.
Blowing Out & Restarting Your Pilot Light & Burner
If your pilot light or burner has gone out or a malfunctioned, we will blow out and restart your pilot light and burner as needed. We locate the gas valve, pushing the button in while rotating it to line up with the pilot position; then press the igniter button until it lights. We then toggle the burner on. During the service call, we make sure both components stay lit safely and are working as they should.
If your fireplace has glass panels, J.C. Fireplaces will clean them for you. We quickly and easily remove soot, ash, dust, and dirt so your fireplace glass looks sparkling clean again. This easy service can be completed in under an hour for most units.
We also provide millivolt readings for several types of gas fireplace units. We check the thermostat, to insure it is the proper type for the unit with appropriate wire sizes. Next, we take a reading for the MV to determine if the entire millivolt system or a component needs to be replaced, or if the reading is at the proper level. Our technicians check for thermopile output, system resistance, and automatic pilot valve dropout. For protection from harmful gas emission and optimization of safety features, this simple service is a recommended regularly. Ask the J.C. Fireplaces' staff for more details.
