Fireplace Gas Line

    by

    I had a fireplace in my living-room that is already hooked up to a gas line in my 1920 house, i was wondering if i can use the existing gas line or i do have to run a new gas line .
    I would like to insert a square box.
    Thanks

    1. Has the flue been checked you could have a birds nest or obstruction. Why put in an insert, additional heat? If the fireplace was designed for gas the realistic gas logs may give you the look you want without the glass of the insert which turns black after a while. Just thought I’d throw that out there…

    2. test it for leaks. I installed one. make sure you have a shutoff valve at the fireplace AND at the source for the line.
