What do you need to know before you get your fireplace converted to a gas one, and how can you make sure that it’s going to be able to do everything that you want it to do? Here are some of the things that you will want (and need) to keep in mind when you’re converting your traditional fireplace to a gas one.

The first thing that you’re going to have to do is make sure that your chimney or home is going to be able to utilize a gas fireplace. This will involve you calling in your chimney sweep or repair person to come in and inspect it for you.

They will come and make sure that your whole chimney is working that the way that it should, that it doesn’t need any repairs, and that it is going to be able to be converted to gas. If you don’t have a chimney, then you will either need to install one, or you’re going to have to go with an option that does not require you to have one at all.
