When the next winter season rolls around, you’re ready to turn up the heat with your Foster Fuels fireplace but how ready is it actually? It might not seem as important to clean, but taking care of your gas logs can actually help you save in the long run.

How do I know when my gas logs need cleaning?

  • Annually get your gas logs professionally serviced to ensure top performance as well as check all vents.
  • Check for soot build–up. A little soot is normal.

Always call your technician if you suspect your gas logs need maintenance!

How do I know when my gas logs aren’t working properly?

  • Watch for yellow flames. When working properly, your propane fireplace burns with a blue flame. If the flame is yellow, the gas may not be burning completely. If this occurs, contact your Foster Fuel certified technician.

Just in case!

  • Check your chimney sweep before using your fireplace. Over the months that you haven’t used the fireplace, birds may have created a nesting place in your chimney. Clean out all debris before lighting your gas logs.
