Buying your hearth appliance from a privately owned UFS Member Store, whether it’s a cheap fireplace insert or top-of-the-line pellet stove, means you get to build a lasting relationship that will include annual Service & Maintenance.
In order to keep your fireplace, insert, or stove operating safely & properly, you will need to have it serviced regularly. Wood burning fireplaces & stoves and even gas and pellet appliances require annual maintenance like cleaning and inspections to keep them working as they should. When you purchase from a specialty hearth shop, you get to build a relationship that will last for years to come, and this includes service to your appliance.
Many UFS Member Stores are committed to providing regular service and maintenance throughout the life of your appliance, whether it’s annual inspections and cleanings or emergency repairs. Big Box stores, on the other hand, do not offer service after installation. Once you purchase your stove, insert, or fireplace, you’re responsible for finding and handling repairs & annual maintenance.
The service department personnel & contractors that work for our UFS Member Stores are trained to have a thorough knowledge of a full range of hearth products; from stoves to inserts, and even chimneys & venting systems. Homeowners can turn to our industry professionals who are completely qualified to handle all service & repair issues that may arise. That’s just another great benefit of buying from a specialty UFS Hearth Member Store.
When it’s time to repair your hearth or heating appliance, whether it’s a discount gas stove or top-quality wood burning insert, many UFS Member Stores offer repairs & replacement parts performed by highly trained & qualified service techs.
Your hearth appliance will undoubtedly require repairs and maintenance during its lifetime. If you have purchased your fireplace, stove, or insert from a Big Box store, you may wonder who to turn to when it comes time for repairs. Most times, your correspondence with these retailers ends after you pay for the product.
