Fireplace Tune-up and Safety Check

Keep your fireplace attractive, warm and safe

Most manufacturers recommend having gas-burning appliances inspected annually by a professional service provider, like CenterPoint Energy's Home Service Plus® (HSP).  In some cases, failure to do so may void your warranty. For more information on proper use, care and energy saving tips, check out the Home Service Plus Learning Center.

An HSP fireplace tune-up includes important safety checks of operations, controls and more, including:

  • Blower wheel: Check and clean, if necessary and accessible
  • Glass: Clean with recommended glass cleaning compound. HSP offers glass cleaner. Ask your technician, or call 612-861- 4745.
  • Burners: Clean and vacuum; replace decorative substance as needed (ember material)
  • Pilot: Check and clean
  • Combustion chamber: Clean, as necessary
  • Gas log: Check condition
  • System wiring: Check for deterioration
  • Ignition: Check and adjust to improve performance
  • Thermocouple/powerpile: Check operation

  • Thermostat/Remote: Check for proper operation
  • Main burner combustion: Check to assure operating safety
  • Carbon monoxide (CO): Check for presence of unsafe levels of CO at the time of the tune-up.
