Service Gas Fireplaces, Log Sets, and Fire Pits


You should have your heat appliances serviced regularly. Yes, even the outdoor appliances that seem harmless. Do you live in our service area of Westhampton Beach, New York, or along our beautiful coastline? If so,  you should pay close attention to your routine maintenance of your gas appliances.

Ocean Air and Your Gas Appliances

Gas Fireplaces, log sets, and fire pits work great in all climates, humidity, and elevation. However, they can sometimes be affected by what is in the air. For instance, coastal climates can offer a different experience when it comes to your gas appliances. The salt in the air can gum up the works. This makes your gas fireplace, log sets, or fire pit less efficient, and even unsafe.

Salt Deposits and Corrosion

Salt in the air, especially in coastal climates, can expedite the corrosion of metal surfaces. Since our service area includes all coastal areas, we take care to warn our customers of this added risk. We recommend routine cleaning and services to ensure the safety and efficiency of the products we install and maintain. We put our customers safety first. Plus, even though we recommend, sell, and install only the best products on the market, they can still be damaged by coastal air if they aren’t properly maintained!

Gas fireplaces and log sets depend on metal pipes, fittings, and valves in order to transport the fuel from the natural gas line to the appliance. These metal components are susceptible to salt water corrosion, just as everything is more so in this climate. However, the gas fire pits that are installed outdoors are even more susceptible to this corrosion. In addition, a shortened life and danger of malfunction!

What You Can Do

Want to avoid a dangerous malfunction that can result in loss of health, life, or property? If so, you should discuss your concerns with a fireplace expert. At Beach Stove and Fireplace, our technicians are certified, trained, and experienced in proper installation and maintenance of all of our gas products. The first thing you can do to ensure that your appliance is safe for use? Have it properly installed by a certified professional! Next, you should schedule annual maintenance to all of your heat appliances. This is especially true if they’re exposed to salt-water air that will increase deterioration and corrosion.

What We Do

When you schedule services with Beach Stove and Fireplace, an expert will be dispatched to your home to clean and assess your fireplace. Connections, burners, and valves will be checked thoroughly. Also – doors, fasteners, and hinges as well. Any part of the fireplace, log set, or fire pit that can deteriorate or become corroded will be assessed thoroughly. You will also get a detailed report when the technician is finished.
