I converted a wood burning fireplace to gas logs. My question is what is
more efficient? Keep the glass doors closed or open? The conversion
doesn't have a blower.
I always thought if you have the doors open, it draws heat from the furnace
up the flue. The gas fireplace doesn't heat the house, just the living
room, so the furnace does run while the fireplace is going. But, it doesn't
really throw a lot of heat out with the glass doors closed.
