A gas log fireplace is a wonderful luxury for a home in Arizona. We don’t rely on heating systems as much as other parts of the country that deal with colder winters… but that doesn’t mean we can’t also enjoy the beauty of a fireplace.
The cold weather (or cooler weather, as the case often is) in the Valley of the Sun starts later in the year than in most other parts of the country. You can delay arranging for regular heating maintenance until around December—but you can’t delay it forever.
Cleaning the fireplace. Sounds like a chore, doesn’t it? If you have a wood-burning fireplace, you know all about scooping out and removing the ashy remains of the last fire.
Proper comfort and energy efficiency in your home is about more than the AC and heater. It’s also about the ventilation system that carries conditioned air to the rooms. It’s easy to put the ductwork out of your mind since you can’t see most of it, but that’s a mistake. Air ducts with damage will start to leak air, and this will have an impact on your comfort, energy savings, and even the quality of your indoor air.
