new gas fireplace, first time use question
We just moved into our new house with a gas (propane, direct vent) fireplace. We were told we need to run it about 6 hours initially to allow it to "cure" (he might've used another word, but I'm not sure) and to open windows and use a fan to help the smoke get outside. That's sounds messy! Is this really necessary?
In our last new house, albeit 14 yrs ago and not a direct-vent (like a wood-burning FP but with gas logs installed instead), we didn't do this and I don't recall a problem.
