For the Best Pellet Stove Maintenance in Town, Turn to Mountain Man Fireplace & Chimney, Inc.

When it comes to home hearth appliances, many homeowners default to fireplaces. However, a fireplace is just one way to heat your home. Pellet stoves are growing in popularity as a viable alternative to fireplaces as they produce less ash and smoke than traditional wood-burning units, but still offer a similar ambiance and charm. Pellet stoves are also eco-friendly and are the preferred option for environmentally conscious homeowners. 

Although they don’t produce as much soot and ash as wood-burning fireplaces, pellet stoves still require regular maintenance. If it’s time for an inspection and cleaning, call the trusted and certified professionals here at Mountain Man Fireplace & Chimney, Inc. Our knowledgeable chimney technicians are experts in pellet stove maintenance and will help keep your hearth appliance in peak condition. Call us to schedule an appointment at 303-679-1601 or reach out to us online.

How Often Should I Have My Pellet Stove Serviced?

We recommend following guidelines provided by the Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA) and the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) by scheduling professional servicing for your pellet stove at least once a year. This yearly check-in ensures your appliance receives a thorough cleaning and checkup to maximize its efficiency, safety, and lifespan. We’ll look over all of its components including the firebox, venting system, auger, and combustion motors.


With that said, you should make it a point to clean your pellet stove throughout the burning season to limit buildup in between annual cleanings. This typically involves removing ash, scraping the burn pot, and wiping down the glass doors. How often you’ll need to do this depends on how much you use your stove, but it’s usually every few days to once a week.

Do I Need To Hire a Professional To Service My Pellet Stove?

As mentioned above, you can – and should – perform some routine cleaning on your pellet stove yourself, but there are many advantages to hiring a professional for servicing, including:

  • Expert maintenance from certified professionals. The chimney technicians at Mountain Man Fireplace & Chimney are certified by the CSIA and the National Fireplace Institute (NFI). This means we have undergone extensive training and are committed to continuing our education to stay up to date on the latest advancements in pellet stove maintenance.
  • You can save money with preventive care. A certified chimney sweep has the knowledge to identify minor issues before they turn into major repairs. This can spare you budget-blowing expenses and keep your pellet stove running smoothly throughout the burning season.
  • Maintain your warranty. To keep your pellet stove warranty valid, most manufacturers require regular professional maintenance. Hiring a certified chimney sweep ensures your stove stays compliant, protecting your investment.
  • Eliminate questions about safety. When you have a hearth appliance in your home, it’s natural to worry about risks like a fire breaking out or carbon monoxide poisoning. If you take a DIY approach to pellet stove maintenance, can you be sure you’re keeping your family safe? Bringing in a pro is better for your peace of mind.
