Important Fireplace Safety Tips
Safety tips for operating your fireplace
It’s a simple concept that we all understand – fireplaces can get hot. But sometimes, especially with gas fireplaces that have sealed combustion systems behind glass, it’s easy to overlook basic gas fireplace safety.
When using any fireplace – gas fireplaces included – there are real flames and hot gases involved. The fire is contained, but as the fireplace warms the room, the materials that surround the fire can get hot, like the metal surrounding the firebox and the glass, which can reach temperatures high enough to cause serious burns if touched. This is why it’s immensely important to ensure a fireplace safety barrier screen is installed over the glass, as well considering the additional safety tips we’ve outlined below.
