Please see the attached video and give me your opinion.
The unit is not venting right out of the top at all and I believe it is fully disconnected inside the chimney. But I also noticed I can see the glow of the orange flame that i believe should be contained in the firevox, below the unit I’ve never seen anything like that. Is this thing even safe???
Is that a wood burner converted to a gas fireplace? It looks like a gas starter.
Regardless, I would write hard on that one.
I believe it is fully gas there was an old wood fireplace behind it but I noticed as I was documenting all the major things wrong with it I started to get in the headache and I don’t know if that’s related or not!! Unfortunately I get headaches at the drop of a hat
Be a good time to have a CO sniffer.
whatever it is , there is not enough information in that video…do You have a picture of the damper?, was it open? do You have a picture from farther away?, that looks like a handyman special from here…I would defer to a qualified chimney sweep for a cleaning and evaluation…
