While adding a gas fireplace to your living room is a fantastic idea, have you ever thought about doing the same for your porch? While it may seem a little out of the ordinary, adding a gas fireplace to your porch can help provide comfort, especially on those cooler summer nights.
Installing a gas fireplace to the porch will also help improve the value of your home, and the installation process isn’t as difficult as you might think. Most porch fireplaces are built with zero clearance and rest directly on the wood framing.
Basically the firebox is fit into a chimney chase, which is then framed and sheathed, before being sided like a normal house wall. An insulated flue is then passed through to the top, where a shroud or a sheet metal cap is then used in order to prevent debris or the elements from getting into the fireplace.
If you’re looking for a way to improve the value of your home, as well as add to the comfort of your porch, then consider installing a gas fireplace right onto your porch. For additional information, contact us at Valor Radiant Gas Fireplaces today.
