Common Fireplace Problems
Problems with Pilot Light
If your pilot light won’t stay lit, there could be a range of problems from a broken thermopile to faulty wiring. We recommend referring to your owner’s manual to review the steps to ignite your pilot light but, if you are unsuccessful, we are here to help.
It’s normal for wood-burning fireplaces to collect soot over time, but if you have a natural gas fireplace and see soot, that indicates an issue. If the doors, logs, or vents of your fireplace are covered in soot or black marks, call us to check it out as soon as possible.
If your fireplace is making loud and unfamiliar noises, it is most likely due to unclean burners or a problem with the blower. It is often the case that a blower replacement might be necessary, but an experienced HVAC technician will will be able to identify the problem quickly and recommend an appropriate solution.
“Rotten Egg” Stench
If your fireplace gives off the stench of rotten eggs, it could be the result of a gas leak. The scent is caused by a non-toxic chemical called “mercaptan”, which is purposefully included in your fuel supply as a warning mechanism for gas leaks. If you notice this smell emitting from your propane fireplace, exit your home immediately and call a professional to help.
