Hi,

This is Kyle K with Member Care. Thanks for posting your question.

Although we don't track going rates for various projects because this varies widely depending on market factors and location, members are encouraged to include how much a project cost in their reviews.

With that in mind, a good way to find out a general price range, login to your membership and search for Gas Logs, and then look as the project cost associated with each review. The best way to get the most accurate information is to request multiple bids from several local contractors. As the price will vary with work site considerations and individual contractors' approaches, getting multiple estimates will help provide a clearer idea of what to expect in terms of pricing.

I hope this information help! Please let me know if I can assist further. You can respond to this thread or submit a new Answers post. You can also reach us at memberservices@angieslist.com. We're happy to help!

Some use a standard funace/hot water heater model thermocouple, other a custom design. IF the former than a normal Plumber should be able to fix it for minimum service charge plus cost of the thermocouple - $10 or thereabouts typically.

If custom type, then a plumber would have to come, seewhat you have, then order thermocouple, then come back (second visit charge commonly) to install it - so all around, I would say a gas log/gas insert place that sells and services them would be a better bet. Gas Logs is your Search the List category. Assuming the thermocouple or similar simple issue is the problem, probably about $70-100 labor plus the part - could be around half again to double that if the problem is in the gas valve itself and it needs changing out, depending on whether it is readily accessible or embedded in the facing of the fireplace.
