cold air through bottom vents
We recently bought a 1996 house which has a Majestic gas fireplace. With the cold weather now, we notice a lot of cold air coming in through the bottom vents of the fireplace. What does one do to prevent that? Would taping the vent from the inside help prevent the cold air from coming into the room. Of course, then we'd have to remove it each time we light the fire.
Any suggestions? Any ideas appreciated.
