In checking the house for air leaks, I've discovered there's about a
one inch gap between the wood facing that surrounds our original
equipment vented gas fireplace and the metal frame surrounding the
glass doors, and a substantial amount of cold air is flowing through.
As the fireplace is gas,we already have to leave the flue damper open
and I'd really like to seal this leak up.
I've temporarily placed the kind of foam weatherstripping you use
around window a/c units to seal the gap, and if there's no safety
issue, I'll probably just leave it there. Does anyone have any thoughts
Thanks, and happy new year.
