Drafty Gas Fireplace Insert
In the winter (Alberta) we get huge drafts coming in the grills of our gas fireplace insert. I’ve noticed it when it’s not in use, especially at night but it seems inconsistent and not necessarily predictable by the temperature or audible wind. From the outside there is a fresh air intake on the chimney and there is a metal chimney exiting the top of the old stucco chimney.
What can I do here? Who would I even call to look at it? My husband likes the fireplace but I am really concerned about the draft coming in when it can be -30 C here and our winter is long.
