My wife and I were talking about putting a fireplace in the living room.
It was a subject that had come up various times, but nothing ever happened.
When all of us were visiting her sibling 1 afternoon, all of us saw he had installed a gas fireplace in their living room. My wife asked how she could put the gas line into the house? She said that was a straight-forward job, but had she had a gas gas furnace, she could’ve truly just connected to the gas line that went into the gas furnace. My wife started thinking about this since all of us had a gas gas furnace. She called the Heating, Ventilation & A/C corporation and ask about the probability of connecting to the gas line that went into the gas furnace when all of us put in our fireplace. The Heating, Ventilation & A/C serviceman wasn’t sure if it was a nice idea, and she said she had never seen it done that way. She said it may be safer to run a direct gas line from a gas tank into the fireplace instead of connecting directly into the gas furnace. My wife is all about safety, and so was I. We didn’t want to do anything that was going to cause a fire or an explosion in our home. Instead of installing a gas fireplace, all of us opted to install an electric fireplace insert into a fake fireplace setting. It looks just as pretty even if it does not throw off a lot of heat, but it was the ambience that all of us were going for and not the heat. Two weeks later, all of us were kneeling in front of our electric fireplace listening to the fake logs crackle and enjoying the ambience.
