Gas Fireplace Maintenance Tips

There has always been something comforting about fireplaces. On a cold winter day, you may come inside to grab a hot beverage and warm up by a roaring fire. Not only do fireplaces warm up your home, but they also make your house more inviting and increase the value of your home. Gas fireplaces are also known to be safer than wood-burning, as they do not create sparks or release dangerous fumes or particles into the air. You can also rely on a gas fireplace to keep you and your family warm if the power goes out or your furnace breaks down during the colder months. Take comfort in knowing that the cold will be left outdoors where it belongs while we repair your furnace.  

Regular maintenance and check-ups are essential for a smooth-running gas fireplace. In order to clean the glass, place a small amount of cleaner on a dry cloth and move the cloth in a circular motion; remove any excess solution with another dry cloth. You should only use fireplace glass cleaner for cleaning the unit, as regular glass cleaners like Windex contain ammonia-based chemicals which could damage the glass. Always remember to turn your fireplace off and allow it to cool before starting any maintenance. 

To clean dust from your gas fireplace, start by unplugging the blower cord. Once unplugged, use a small brush to remove any dust from around the unit. Finally, use a vacuum cleaner to suck up any leftover dust. 

An annual inspection is an important factor in properly maintaining your gas fireplace. A licensed technician will check the unit for broken glass, cracked or chipped framework, as well as inspect the gas line. If you are experiencing any issues with your fireplace or gas line or need an inspection, Twintech is just a call away. Our technicians have a wide range of diagnostic equipment to determine the problem and fix any issues with your gas fireplace.

by Rita, Scarborough on Twintech Heating and Cooling
We were so pleased with their service

When our old oil furnace finally broke down we decided it was time to finally convert to natural gas and finally install central air conditioning at the same time. Knowing it was going to be a significant investment for us, we wanted to make the right choice. Twintech came highly recommended by a friend and we were not disappointed. From the first contact with the salesperson, until the final touches on the installation, we were so pleased with their service. Everyone from the company was so friendly, efficient and a pleasure to deal with. Best of all, the cost was very competitive. We would certainly recommend Twintech to anyone requiring HVAC work in their home.

Within a couple of hours, we had a new unit up and running!

During the hottest week in the summer our old A/C decided to call it quits. I called Twintech Heating & Cooling after receiving a referral from a family member; came highly rated for being an honest, family-run business, who appreciates their customers. Dave was able to accommodate my hectic schedule and book a late evening appointment to walk through the specifics. Greg and Mitch arrived exactly on time a few days later, were very polite and friendly, and within a couple of hours had a new unit up and running. I also received a follow-up call to ensure we were happy with the Amana.

Professionally done and took care to cover all entry floors

Professionally done and took care to cover all entry floors to the house for the installers to remove the old furnace and install a new furnace.
I also made recommendations of the tankless water heater that we had installed and items to address. We did not know they also installed tankless water heaters.

by Bill, Pickering on Twintech Heating and Cooling
Proud to support this local company

Price was not the cheapest nor the most expensive of my quotes. It's the quality of the installation that makes for a good AC system. The twins' knowledge & professionalism was evident in the small details:
Very clean work. Greg made sure that the refrigerant level & temperature were correct. They reinstall the insulation & vapor barrier around the wall. The outside electrical cords were secured to the wall. Proud to support this local company. Thank you.

by Taz on Twintech Heating and Cooling
Arrived on time worked very efficiently and were very clean

Great team of guys came to do the work. Very professional. Arrived on time worked very efficiently and were very clean. They answered any questions we had without hesitation. The air conditioner works great and is so quiet. I highly recommend them and they don't try to up-sell anything right from the start.
