Fireplaces in Tight Houses
We are building a custom house with SIP walls and SPF roof. Manual ventilation will be installed. Plans were originally for a 2×6 enclosure and an unvented fireplace. The research I’ve done says unvented fireplaces in a tight enclosure are a bad idea but the client (my wife) doesn’t like the look of an exterior chimney.
Is there a way to vent a fireplace unobtrusively? Or, can I get a way with unvented gas logs if I supply make up air?
