I have a Martin Industries gas log heater AU40L/U40T/UF40T, installed around 1997 and has worked wonderfully until recently. Now it emits a gas odor when in use. What's the average life span of these heaters?

Our Answer:

Typically, unvented fireplaces and decorative logs will last approximately 20 years when serviced regularly. Buildup of debris in the main burner orifice, dust or debris clogging the air shutter, and perforation of the main burner tube can all cause issues with odors and CO emission. I highly recommend having the unit inspected and serviced if necessary. If any corrosion or damage to the burner is present, the unit will likely need replacement.
