Gas FireplaceNassau, Suffolk, Bronx, Brooklyn, Manhattan, Queens, and Staten Island Counties
The safety needs of a fireplace are obvious – homeowners want to protect themselves and their loved ones from getting burned or inhaling fumes and smoke. Capitol Chimney has the tools and expertise to ensure your fireplace is in tip-top shape and meets the highest standards of safety. From time to time, you may have trouble starting a fire in your gas or wood burning fireplace. Always check the damper first — If the damper is not properly installed, it may not open fully. This could also be caused by draft problems relating to your chimney. If a cap is out of place or not fully sealed, or if the chimney is clogged and dirty, a fire may not start or burn properly. We will check all of these things, in addition to ensuring a proper gas line connection and a functioning pilot light. Sometimes it is as simple as flipping a switch, and sometimes it is more complicated.

Types Of Gas Fireplaces
Gas fireplaces come in three types: inserts, for folks who want to retrofit a wood-burning firebox with something more convenient and efficient; built-ins, for those who want a fireplace where there isn't one now; and log sets, basic burners that sit in existing, open fireplaces. Both inserts and built-in fireplaces are reliable heat producers, filling your room with a mix of warm air and radiant heat. Log sets are usually more for looks than warmth. With each gas fireplace type, you have a choice between models that vent the flames' fumes outside or vent-free versions that discharge all their heat, and exhaust, into the house. We'll help you pick the type of gas fireplace that's right for you. We'll also walk you through the key features to look for and explain how to get a unit that generates enough heat for your particular space. So when the first icy night of winter arrives, all it will take is a click of a remote control for you to cozy up in front of your blazing hearth.
