    Question Insulate Gas Fireplace Insert

    Hi folks, Im in Red Deer Alberta. It gets super cold here.

    I have a signifigant draft from my 1986 gas fireplace insert.

    Should I have the insert replaced? Or will a contractor be able to insulate it somehow?

    i would get ahold of a contractor in your area and see if you can get a heat activated damper for the chimney because most of that cold air is probably coming down the chimney.

    You need a full inspection by a pro to determine where the cold is coming in. Depending on the type of fireplace it is, it might be just the nature of the product, or otherwise a leak in the building envelope behind the fireplace.
