Maintenance and Repair of Stoves

In order to keep your new heating stove working safely and efficiently, you will need to keep up regular maintenance and service. The highly trained service crew at Sierra Hearth & Home can provide annual inspections, maintenance, and repair for your wood, gas, or pellet stove to ensure that it performs at optimum levels. Basic maintenance, such as cleaning, is quick and easy but a thorough inspection should be performed after every burn season to ensure that your stove will be ready to go next fall.
Just as with wood fireplaces and inserts, a wood stove chimney should be inspected annually by a professional to check for all signs of deterioration such as cracks, leaks, warping, baffle gaps, and creosote in the flue. Dealing with these problems earlier can save a lot of money and hassle down the line. Every few weeks, homeowners should clean out excessive ash and wipe down the glass doors. Keeping up with your wood stove maintenance can help keep it running safely and efficiently and will even prevent costly repairs in the future.
Gas stoves require considerably less maintenance than wood-fueled stoves but it's still important to have one of our technicians come out and check over everything once a year. We will check gaskets and seals, clean the glass and fans, check the burner assembly, clean out any buildup, and replace the batteries in your thermostat if needed. This quick yet crucial maintenance is important to keep your gas burning stove operating at its highest efficiency and to ensure that it is properly venting dangerous gases out of your home.
While pellet stoves don't require the leg work of wood stoves, they contain a lot of moving/working parts that can need to be replaced from time to time. While homeowners can do their part to keep the inside of the burn area clean biweekly, including the heat exchange tubes, burn pot, fire back and ash pan, a professional technician should perform an annual inspection in spring. A pellet stove maintenance appointment will include the inspection of the heat exchange tubes, cleaning of the glass viewing window and blower fans, and inspection of door and glass gaskets.
We offer a full-service maintenance plan for your heating stove. Our trained NFI technicians can properly handle all necessary service requirements like removing soot, fine-tuning the gas burner, or changing the door gasket so you can spend your time enjoying your new heating stove.
