I have a wood-burning fireplace in my basement. I don't use it because it
sucks all the warm air out. Does a gas fireplace offer more efficiency than
wood, i.e. is some of the combustion heat retained, such that I could use it
to heat up the basement while watching TV down there?
I have a gas line on that end of the house, so it shouldn't be a problem to
get gas to the fireplace.
