Fireplace conversions to get rid of the wood and add the convenience of natural gas. There’s a number of things that you should be very much aware of when this takes place. For an example here you can see there’s been a gas log unit installed in the place of the wood cradle. The burning of the log must be all the time controlled by an on and off switch. But the homeowner is not decided to do anything whatsoever with the screened front or the screen doors allowing air at all times to pass into the fireplace. The chimney not what you’d call energy-efficient especially when the fire is off, and when the fire the burner is off then you still have a standing fire being the pilot light.
Vent must always open so therefore you can see the damper has been fixed open by using double acorn nuts and there’s an actual locking material. To make it more energy-efficient and certainly power smart for the home we want to take and put glass doors. The reason you should have glass doors, they’ll cut out 70% of the heat. You’re saving energy when you’re burning your gas log because you’re pumping heat in. But it’s when you’re not using your fireplace is when you’re saving your energy with glass doors. With the glass doors closed with the fire off then that heat is not escaping by going up the chimney.
