OTHER GAS EQUIPMENT
Burners, heat exchangers and pipe connectors should be inspected and maintained periodically by a certified natural gas professional.
Follow the manufacturer’s instructions for use and maintenance. Remember that insects can block gas flow into the metal tube under each burner, possibly causing a fire.
Stove, hotplate or wall oven
Keep the oven and burners clean. Never use a stove or oven to warm the room. Do not line the oven with aluminum foil, which could block the air intake or interfere with the circulation of hot air. Instead, place a cookie sheet on the oven shelf under your oven dishes.
A natural gas dryer must be vented to the outside. Even if you clean the internal filter regularly, dust can accumulate in the vent pipe, creating a fire hazard. Twice a year, inspect and clean the outside cover on the dryer vent. If it is fitted with a flap valve, make sure it operates freely.
Contact your pool distributor or installer about heater and pump maintenance. Before being switched on, a pool heater with finned copper tube heat exchangers installed in living space must be cleaned annually by a natural gas-certified technician. Check the manufacturer’s or installer’s instructions to determine whether you have this type of pool heater.
