Which Fireplace is Right for You?
Each type of fireplace has its pros and cons, so it’s best to carefully think about what would work best for you.
- Wood burning fireplaces are popular because they can provide a very traditional atmosphere.
- They may not always be the most economical option, but they have been proven to last longer than any other type of fireplace out there.
- Electric fireplaces have become extremely popular in recent years they are low maintenance and easy to use. One of the main drawbacks of an electric fireplace, however, is its limited flame presentation.
- Free-standing stoves are excellent at providing heat, but it can be difficult sometimes to find a store nearby selling the firewood you need.
- Gas fireplaces are becoming very popular as people become more environmentally conscious. They also come with a big downside, which is that gas can be dangerous.

There are five main signs to note when you need gas fireplace services.
- Pilot light issues. If your gas fireplace’s pilot light frequently goes out or refuses to stay lit, it’s typically a problem with a part called the thermopile, which may need an easy replacement. It could also be a more serious problem with the wiring.
- Too much soot. A lot of soot in a gas fireplace could mean an issue with the logs, the inside of the fireplace, or with your venting.
- Wear and tear.
- Switching on and off. When your gas fireplace switches on and off, there are many potential reasons behind it.
- A rotten egg smell. This smell means there’s a gas leak somewhere and you need to leave the area immediately.

A wood-burning fireplace is a beautiful way to heat your home, but it requires an annual cleaning and maintenance schedule to keep it working well. If you need heater repair in Zanesville, contact Roy Mechanical, LLC.
Here are six tips for fireplace care during the colder months to help you maintain a safe wood burning or wood stove fireplace that is easy to use and simple to keep clean:
- Remove ashes after the fireplace has stopped glowing.
- Have your fireplace inspected before use. Every fireplace must meet codes for safety and efficiency, so make sure yours is inspected each year before you turn it on.
- Burn seasoned hardwood only. Only use burn seasoned (dry) wood in your fireplace to avoid creosote buildup, which can ignite and cause an interior chimney or fireplace fire.
- Keep the fireplace and chimney clean at all times. Your fireplace is a convenient place to dispose of crumpled paper and cardboard, but you should never burn these items in the fireplace. Paper and cardboard can ignite and then smolder for hours before producing enough heat to catch fire.
- Use fireplace tools designed for safety. Tools with pointed ends or metal fireplace pokers used in fireplaces can damage or break fireplace glass doors leading to possible cuts from broken glass and burns from hot embers when not used correctly.
- Store firewood outside the fireplace room. Where wood fireplace is used, store your firewood outside of that room because burning improperly seasoned firewood produces hydrogen chloride, associated with eye irritation and respiratory problems when inhaled.
For professional wood-burning fireplace services, give Roy Mechanical a call today to schedule an appointment. Our technicians will clean out the creosote from the flue, remove and clean air tubes, inspect the catalyst, clean the thermal probe, inspect the damper, and clean the glass.
