Gas Log Safety

Gas Log Safety

Installing a set of gas logs is not a do-it-yourself task! If installed
incorrectly, gas logs can leak gas or carbon monoxide into your home,
or fill your room with soot. If you own a set of gas logs a carbon monoxide
detector is a must to avoid a dangerous situation. Here are some other
tips for safe operation of gas logs:

  • Never throw anything into gas logs. The foreign object melts or coats the
    burner and it can become clogged and create greater production of soot
    and inefficient burning or heating. Never roast marshmallows or cook over gas logs!
  • Ensure your gas logs come equipped with a safety pilot. A safety pilot
    eliminates the leak hazard by shutting off the gas when there is no flame.
  • Ensure your set of gas logs are ANSI-certified.
  • Never allow children to play with gas logs.

Call American Mechanical for more information and to allow one of our professionals

right the first time” as you enjoy the flickering light of your
