The fireplace is going downhill

I would rather have this than the reverse

After about 10 years, a gas fireplace is just about done for, as sad as this is, in the first 2-3 years of its life, a significant decrease in efficiency happens, however if you are not on it with cleaning plus maintaining your gas fireplace, it will not live that long, but getting a Heating plus A/C company to my apartment has proven to be just about impossible. I wanted to be superb plus do regular heating tune ups every fall season. Any local Heating plus A/C company I called either put me on a waiting list, did not call me back or refused to make the drive to my home… My gas fireplace just went years with no professional help. My partner plus I did everything the two of us could. I wiped the outside plus vacuumed up the inside once a year. My partner frequently would mess with the electric start. That has been the furnace repair that won’t go away. The fireplace is a little odd about turning on plus off. The wireless remote no longer will operate our heating system… You have to manually turn it on plus off, but periodically the fireplace just won’t turn on. My partner plus I keep messing plus messing with it then. After the furnace comes on, sometimes it won’t turn off. There are afternoons that the apartment is around 78 degrees plus the furnace won’t turn off. I would rather have this than the reverse. I suppose I need a current heating system, however I just can’t make myself put in the time, effort plus work.
