Installing a gas fireplace is a complex process that should only be done by a licensed professional. The first step is to choose the location for the fireplace, which should be a central location in the room or in a location where it will be most visible.
The next step is to determine the type and size of the fireplace that will best suit your needs. This will depend on the size of the room, the style of the home, and the preferences of you and your family.
Once the location and size of the fireplace have been determined, a gas line will need to be run to the fireplace. This will typically require drilling through walls and floors, and running the gas line through the attic or crawlspace.
Additionally, one of our professionals will need to install a venting system to remove the exhaust gasses from the fireplace. This will typically require drilling a hole through the roof, and running a vent pipe through the attic.
To prevent issues with your gas fireplace, schedule annual inspections by certified technicians, perform monthly visual checks, and keep vents and burners clean. Install gas leak and CO detectors, follow manufacturer guidelines, and educate family members on safe operation practices.Read Full Answer
