Do you have a gas or wood burning fireplace?
Do you know whether you have a gas fireplace or a wood burning fireplace? Sometimes it can be hard telling the difference. A wood burning fireplace burns wood as a fuel source but some wood burning fireplaces use a gas starter for easily lighting a fire. Gas starters are typically found under the firewood grate and use a keyed value to control the flow of gas. We recommend having the gas starter on for no more that 10 minutes at a time when starting a fire. Another way to tell if you have a wood burning fireplace is most have an 8 inch or larger damper and glass doors that open so you can insert your firewood.
A gas fireplace on the other hand will typically come with ceramic logs or fireglass depending on the style. If you have a direct vent fireplace or stove you might find that the glass does not open, this is a clear sign that you have a gas burning appliance.
