ANNUAL SERVICE REQUIREMENTS

Why do I need to service my fireplace?

All fireplaces are required to be serviced annually. The annual service is required in order to check the integrity of vital components and clear the flue way of any potential blockage and/or creosote build-up (which is flammable and could cause a chimney fire which is extremely dangerous).

Failure to comply with the service requirement can result in reduced performance and/or place additional stress to certain components which may lead to component failure and cause subsequent damage to the appliance and/or flue system resulting in a safety hazard. The manufacturer’s warranty is hence also subject to regular annual services which must be carried out by an authorized service technician.
