We Service Gas Fireplaces

Need services completed for your gas fireplace, stove, or insert? We provide the following:

Gas Log Maintenance

Gas logs provide a realistic fireplace experience without the mess of burning wood, but low maintenance doesn’t mean no maintenance. Like with wood systems, it’s essential to have a professional inspect your gas logs regularly for any cracks or damage, as well as check the burner for any debris or blockages.

Trust our experts to tick off every box, including a gas leak check. We’ll ensure your system stays in tip-top shape – and working safely – for the long haul.

Gas Insert Installation

A gas insert is a self-contained unit that fits into an existing fireplace. Trust us to install your new system to ensure all measurements are adhered to, all clearances are met, and all venting components are properly assembled.

Note that DIY gas insert installation isn’t recommended due to the complex and potentially hazardous nature of the task. Even a small mistake can lead to gas leaks, carbon monoxide poisoning, or fire hazards, posing significant risks to the home and the people in it.

After we complete your installation, we can perform a series of safety checks to ensure everything is functioning correctly – including gas pressure testing, pilot light testing, and more.

Gas Fireplace Maintenance

Regular maintenance of your gas fireplace system is essential for the safe and efficient operation of the unit. We’ll always recommend booking an annual inspection with our experts, so that we can check the burner, ignition system, and overall condition of the fireplace – and ensure it’s providing you with sufficient heat in the safest manner possible.

Cleaning the glass doors regularly to remove soot or residue is also important, and the burner and pilot light assembly should be inspected and cleaned to ensure proper ignition and flame quality. And then there’s the venting system. If this area is blocked or damaged at all, you could face some serious hazards.

Finally, trust us to test all safety features, such as carbon monoxide detectors and automatic shut-off systems, ensuring they are operational and contributing to the overall safety of the gas fireplace.

Chimney & Fireplace FAQs

Can I clean my own chimney?

A: We get this question a lot – and we definitely advise against it. Cleaning a chimney requires special tools and knowledge, and doing it incorrectly can lead to more damage and an increased risk of hazards when you eventually light a fire.

Do I really need to have my chimney cleaned and inspected every year?

A: You bet you do! This should be done every 36 fires or once a year, whichever comes first. The big deal with sweeping and inspections is that they help keep your chimney running efficiently, which ultimately, keeps your family and home safer and more comfortable.

Plus, checking it each year is the best way to stay ahead of any issues that could lead to bigger (and more expensive) ones.

When should I call a chimney company?

A: You should definitely give Coopertown a call if any of the following fit your situation:

  • Purchasing or moving into a home with a chimney
  • Before each fall in preparation for the winter months
  • You want to change the fuel source of your chimney system
  • Your home/chimney has sustained damage from lightning or other sever weather
  • After a chimney or house fire
  • You notice staining on the walls or ceiling around your fireplace or stove
  • You notice any other signs of damage inside or outside your chimney
  • Trouble with gas logs staying lit

Our knowledgeable and expert technicians will treat you and your family as if they were ours. You can rest assured that we will never leave a mess behind, and we pride ourselves on being up front and honest with our customers every step of the way.

Wildlife Removal FAQs

Is wildlife removal humane?

A: With us, it is! We use humane trapping and exclusion methods that cause no harm to the critters we’re handling, and we follow all local, state, and federal guidelines to ensure the safety and well-being of the animals and any surrounding biodiversity.

Can I remove wildlife myself?

A: Like with chimney and fireplace services, we strongly urge against this. Handling wild animals can be dangerous, both because they might fight back and they can spread disease. Improper removal techniques can harm the animal or yourself, while professional wildlife removal professionals have the expertise and equipment to do the job safely.

How can I prevent wildlife from entering my property?

A: If we come to remove animals, we can aid with this by sealing up entry points to your home, then providing tips for your specific home and setup.

Other tips include: keep food sources secure, remove debris and clutter from your yard, and set up motion lights to potentially scare them off. Regular professional inspections and maintenance can help identify and address potential entry points as well.

What happens to the animals after they are removed?

A: Removed animals are relocated to a safe, suitable habitat – far from human dwellings. It’s important to know the ideal spot to free them, so that the animal can thrive and so any surrounding biodiversity isn’t negatively impacted.

In addition, if the animal is already deceased, we will dispose of it in accordance with appropriate guidelines, in a respectful and environmentally responsible way.
