Draft coming in from fireplace. What can I fix and Who do I call?
I have a few questions about my gas fireplace. I have ceramic logs and use a key to turn onthe gas and I have to light it with a match. Cold air is coming in from the fireplace. I’ve got glass doors over the opening butthey are not flush so lots of gaps. I believe wasps are coming in through thereas well.
One cause could be that the damper seems to be stuck andwill not close all the way. I’m not sureif the flap is warped or what. It is acylindrical, swinging hinge type of damper. I pull the lever and it seems as though something is stopping it fromgoing all the way. Also, while I was outin the yard this weekend, I noticed an exhaust vent of some kind at the bottomof the chimney. The flaps were hangingdown so it’s always open.
My questions are as follows:
1. Who do I call to look at my damper? A plumber? A handyman?
2. Is that vent supposed to be open like that all the timeor did someone just put the wrong cap on it?
As always, thanks bunches!
