Service Plan Benefits

Here are some of the benefits to enrolling in our Gas Fireplace Plan:

Service Visit Checklist

As a Gas Fireplace Plan customer, you’ll receive an annual cleaning and service visit. During that visit, one of our expert technicians will do the following:

  1. Vacuum the heat exchanger and fire box.
  2. Remove and inspect glass for cracks and inspect the gasket.
  3. Clean the glass.
  4. Remove and vacuum logs and inspect them for cracks and/or broken logs.
  5. Clean and inspect the burner and check shutter adjustment is at the proper setting.
  6. Clean and inspect the burner orifice.
  7. Clean and inspect the thermocouple and thermopile.
  8. Test the ignition and safety controls.
  9. Check the operation of the blower (if applicable).
  10. Remove and replace the batteries in the remote and receiver (if applicable, batteries cost extra unless supplied).
  11. Check the wall switch for proper operation (if applicable).
  12. Clean and inspect the pilot orifice for a proper flame pattern.
  13. Check vents for blockage.
  14. Check the manifold pressure at valve and adjust (if needed) according to manufacturer’s specifications.
  15. Check and inspect all wiring connections.
  16. Supply and install any decorative rock wool for maximum visual appearance.

Propane Equipment Maintenance Plan

Customers with propane heating equipment can also sign up for a maintenance plan that includes an annual cleaning and service visit. Enrollment helps prevent unexpected system repair costs by catching small problems before they become bigger and more expensive problems.

When you sign up for an Ace-Robbins service plan, our experts will help to ensure that your system is running optimally—both safely and efficiently. Over the years we’ve found that propane appliances covered by our Maintenance Plan typically last longer and cost less to operate than those without coverage. So why not sign up and give yourself some additional peace of mind as well as savings over the lifetime of your equipment?
