Gas Log Installation
Every one of our technicians has a minimum for 5 years experience before going out into the field. We take great pride in the aesthetics and safety involved in gas log installation. Anyone with gas plumbing experience is able to hook up a burner and cause it to light; however, it takes years of trials to fine tune the look of a log set. Each log being meticulously stacked to redirect flame into different directions. Each ember strategically laid to create the illustrious glow of embers. It takes years of hands on experience to take ceramic pieces and truly install a realistic work of art. Churchills offers installation on all of our products and select products from different manufacturers.
Many different types of fireplaces and gas logs require pilot liots. It can be extremely frustrating on that first cold day of the year when your fire wont turn on! It’s worked in the past but this time you’re really struggling with it. Churchills offers pilot lighting service where we are able to go out and diagnose your set for you, and fix it. Sometimes gas plumbing can become clogged, or thermocouples can go bad. Whatever the case maybe; if you have an existing set but are struggling with operation, Churchills will help.
A fireplace tends to be the focal point of all living rooms, a place for families to gather and make memories. Over the years fireplaces have changed in look and design to match that era. If you are wanting to add some life to a drab looking fireplace, a rustic touch, or a modern edge; Churchill’s offers door home appointments. A fireplace door is a surround that goes onto your fireplace to completely transform the appearance. They are completely customizable in size, color, style, and accents. For a small fee we will send one of our designers to your house. She will walk you through the process of selecting the perfect door for your home, and ensuring it fits correctly. We are able to create doors within a variety of budgets, there’s no reason you shouldn’t have a beautiful and functional fireplace!
Over years of use gas logs will start to show wear and tear. The embers will start to fade and won’t glow as bright. The logs will start to accumulate soot and debris. The lava rocks will start to collect ash and become dull. Churchills offers a job called a “Fluff job” where one of our installers will come out and remove all your gas logs. They will then scrub them clean, add fresh new embers, and fresh lava rock. The result will have your older gas logs looking almost brand new! Please inquire if you’d like to enhance the look of your existing gas logs.
