Gate Service LLC repair over 1,000 gas fireplaces each year. Our process includes refurbishing existing parts, check thermopile and thermocouple, check for gas leaks, cleaning the glass, replacing the embers, adjusting the logs, replace batteries if needed, adjusting the gas valve for an optimal burn, adjusting the pilot assembly, and pushing high-pressure carbon dioxide through the system to clean it out. Approximately 80% of the time, our systematic approach will get your gas fireplace running and looking great again. If a part cannot be refurbished, we will contact you with options at your convenience

We specialize in finding and repairing difficult-to-solve fireplace problems. Safety is our number one concern. We will always check for gas and leaks before and after our service. Our goal is to leave you completely satisfied with all aspects of our service.


Fireplaces had a several parts that require frequently repairs, maintenance and/or replacement, we are here to help you to find what does your fireplace needs. Next we list the most common parts that  fireplaces have.   

Thermopiles and thermocouples are two types of temperature sensors commonly used in industrial, commercial and scientific applications. Both devices measure the temperature of a system, but they differ in their construction, working principles and applications.

  • Thermocouples are commonly used as safety devices for appliances to prevent overheating, gas leaks or fires.
  •  Thermopiles are typically used in situations that require greater sensitivity and accuracy, such as detecting HVAC system leaks.
Both require a frequently maintenance and service for the proper functioning of your fireplace.   

Gas flows into a series of valves attached to your gas fireplace. The valves are always closed unless something opens it. This prevents gas from flowing into your home when the fireplace is not lit. A device called a thermocouple will hold open the pilot light valve as long as the pilot light is lit. Our service consist on check if there are a gas lick and 

Burners are installed in gas fireplaces to support the log sets, and to power and control flames.

Gas logs are usually more for looks and aesthetics than for warmth. While they will emit some heat, they do not discharge as much heat as a built-in gas fireplace or gas insert. Most of the heat that is generated from a gas log set goes right up your chimney – just like a wood burning fireplace. This is one of the main factors that will help you decide which type of heating product you want to choose. Aesthetics vs. warmth. If you are looking for more warmth, you should consider a gas insert or built-in gas fireplace.

On our service we clean and rearrange the logs, or if are damage we can offer you a replacement. 

A chimney damper is a manual mechanism that controls airflow and smoke through the chimney flue.

A closed damper acts as a seal that keeps the exterior air out and the interior air in. In contrast, an open one sends carbon-monoxide-rich exhaust through the flue and also assists in starting and controlling a fire.

The high temperature limit switch is a safety device on a fireplace that is designed to cut the gas supply when the burner temperature exceeds the safe operating range. When the temperature drops back within the safe range, it will allow the gas valve to open again.

The switch commonly operates at an upper limit of 160°F (causing the burner to turn off) and a lower limit of 130°F. The limit switch has two main components: a long temperature sensor located inside the fireplace, and a switch mounting plate located on the outside of the fireplace.

Pilot Assemblies are a safety feature that detects for a pilot light to be lit before the thermocouple sends the signal to open the gas to the fire pit or fire feature. The pilot light heats up the thermocouple, as the thermocouple heats up it produces millivolts (1 – 1,000 of a volt). Once the thermocouple is hot enough, causing it to produce the correct amount of millivolts, it sends the signal to open the gas to the outdoor fire pit, fire feature or indoor gas fireplace.

Gas fireplaces provide a cozy and convenient way to add warmth and ambiance to your home. One of the key features to consider when choosing a gas fireplace is the ignition type. Different gas fireplace ignition systems offer distinct advantages and disadvantages, which can significantly impact your overall fireplace experience.

Standing pilot ignition is the traditional method where a small, continuously burning flame, known as the pilot light, ignites the main burner. Also known as continuous pilot ignition (CPI), these systems use millivolt ignition, which does not require any external power to ignite. For efficiency purposes, the pilot will turn off after a period of 7-days if not used. Turning on the fireplace at any time during the 7-day cycle automatically restarts the 7-day cycle.

Intermittent pilot ignition systems utilize electronic ignition to ignite the pilot light when needed. IPI turns on the spark electrode when the fireplace is turned ON, igniting the pilot and then the burner. Note: The pilot will not remain on after the fireplace is turned OFF.

Clean the fireplace glass is a thing that our technician does during our service call. we have to be sure that is in good condition or needs to be replaced.

Ceiling support boxes provide a safe passage for the double-wall chimney pipe through the attic, cathedral ceiling, or floor in multi-story homes. They also support the weight of the chimney stack. 

If your home has a fireplace and chimney, you may want to consider installing a chimney cap. With a small investment of time and money, you can save thousands by preventing damage to both your chimney and roof. 
Chimney covers protect your fireplace flue from rain, animals and debris. They can also protect your roof and reduce fire risk by trapping sparks and embers. Finally, they help block downdrafts. This prevents smoke and fumes from blowing into your house on windy days.
Fireplace caps come in many shapes and materials. The most common are metal, which are available in aluminum, copper and stainless steel. There are also decorative models such as copper caps, which are more costly but require less maintenance. If your chimney has multiple flues, choose between a set of small caps or one large multi-flue cover for a cleaner look.



A blower helps circulate the air in the room and pushes warm air out while pulling cooler air into the fireplace’s air channel. The released air from the blower helps increase the ambient temperature of the air in the room and, therefore, increases the fireplace’s effectiveness. It does not increase the heating capacity of the unit. The unit will always produce the same amount of heat; instead, it spreads the warm air out over a greater area. The whole room is a comfortable temperature instead of the immediate area beside the unit being really hot, and the far corner of the room is much cooler. 

Fire glass (also fire pit glass, fire rocks, fire beads or lava glass) is a type of tempered glass, chunks of which are used decoratively on fireplaces. Pieces of the glass are heaped around jets of burning gas, or around liquid ethanol, in order to conceal the jets and reflect the flames.
