If you are thinking not to replace your old fireplace at this time, make it as energy efficient as possible.
HERE ARE SOME OF THE TIPS:-
IF YOU ARE LOOKING TO REPLACE OR INSTALL A NEW Natural Gas fireplace in your home,
there are a few things to consider:
To keep the fireplace running efficiently you need to periodically clean the logs, embers, and glass door. The natural gas fireplace can be vented or vent free.
Both are safe as long as you follow some basic safety tips.
Safety Tip 1
Carbon monoxide is the biggest safety issue that you need to be aware of because it can be deadly. A vented fireplace vents the fumes out of the house through a chimney.
Safety Tip 2
Natural gas fireplaces produce a lot of heat so you must be very careful to keep all combustibles away from the unit. This is especially true with a vent free fireplace because they are made to have an almost complete combustion which lowers the carbon monoxide level. Also a safety screen is recommended to avoid an accident with small children or pets. One rule is to keep all items 2 feet away from the fireplace to keep them safe.
Safety Tip 3
Yearly maintenance checks are needed to make sure make sure the unit is running properly and safely. The best recommendation is to have this done each year before lighting it for the first time before winter sets in.
Safety Tip 4
Always keep the fan and air circulation passages clean. Along with making sure all the vents are unobstructed and able to work properly. You can refer to the owners manual on cleaning the fan and air circulation passages.
