- A box containing a fire alarm.
- The opening on the bottom of the fireplace (called a firebox bottom) operates much like the air intake vents of a furnace.
- Because of the design of the firebox and the outer shell, heated air is easily contained and then forced into the room.
- A gas insert is a steel encased firebox that is positioned inside of an already designed and usable masonry fireplace.
- Once the gas is ignited, the firebox draws in the cold air from the surrounding room and heats it.
- If you look within the firebox, you see nice looking logs that serve only as a decorative element.
