I have a wood burning fireplace and am thinking of converting to gas, cleaner and less mess. How would that work? I have a gas cooking stove but the source of gas would be quite a distance from the fireplace. Any information you have would be appreciated

Our Answer:

The first step would be to consult a plumber about the cost estimate and viability of running a gas line to your fireplace. Different factors may make the installation easy or nearly impossible. Running a gas line into a manufactured (metal) fireplace is usually not too difficult. Most models come with knockouts for a gas line on either side that allow the line to be installed into the box and gas logs to be fitted. Masonry fireplaces are more difficult because the plumber would need to use a specialized masonry drill to run the line into the fireplace.
