-Call them and point out what they did. See what they say?
If they say they didn't do it. Do not argue with them, let's hire a inspector to check the damage. To see it just did or it's been damage for long time. If it is just recently then the people you hire to do the work for you damage. If the damage seam too old then is not them.

Good Luck

Even if it was a wood burning fireplace from the beginning & was converted to gas ?


Now that's a LOT of additional information. I hesitated to answer your question the way it was worded originally.... IF in fact it is a masonry chimney and originally built to burn wood, you should have a chimney sweep do a thorough inspection of the flue to ensure it is safe to use again. Flue temperatures, while burning wood, EASILY exceed 1200 degrees whereas natural gas flue temps are in the 450 degree range.

It also should have a clay tile liner and not be fabricated of brick only. The unsafe thing of an unlined brick chimney or a chimney with a severely cracked liner has to do with unburned gases condensing within the inner surfaces of the chimney. Some of those gases are moist and will condense on the inner surface and eventually have an unsafe build up that can be ignited by an oversized flame or excessive sparks causing a flue fire. During a flu fire, temperatures exced 2000 degrees and an unlined BRICK flue of that age could have lost some mortar allowing superheated gasses to seep into the crevices. Those superheated gasses then explode when igniged by the flue fire and either do extreme damage to the flue, blow the entire chimney apart or in the worst case scenario burn your house down.

I'm sure you've seen houses burnt and the chimney was left standing....but you have also seen damaged houses with the chimneys blown off the end of the house and laying in rubble toppled out into the yard. The latter visual picture was an example of the end result of the gasses exploding. If the chimney was inside the house instead of on the end of the house, the house would have been burnt also.

There is a lot to be careful about when heating with wood and to start off safely you need to have your chimney inspected and the gas components removed with the gas line capped EXTERNAL of the fireplace.

Wood stove problems


Appliances that can draw air out of your house, like the clothes dryer, air exchangers, bath and kitchen fans can cause a negative air pressure issue. The combination of a cold chimney flu and barometric pressure can also cause a down draft.

Install a Carbon Monoxide Detector in your house when using any fuel burning appliance. Be informed about the dangers of Carbon Monoxide Poisoning.

It could be a draft issue . In order to work properly the stove needs to be able to draw air in to replace the airgoing up the chimney along with the smoke from the fire. In old houses this was not a problem be cause they were loosely constructed and replacement air could be drawn in around windows and doors and gaps in the walls. Newer homes are a lot tighter therefore no replacement air can get in. In some cases the house is so tight that running an exhaust fan or dryer actually creates what is known as a negative pressure situation if this is the case air can be drawn backwards down the chimney and into the house bringing the smoke from the fire with it. To check for this try starting a fire with a window or door partly open. If the fire drafts correctly you may have to install a make up air for the stove. Hope this helps.

Hot water heater not venting properly.


Hi .. it appears that your house is very tight. From your description of leaving a window open , it seems that the gas heater is suffering from lack of make - up air. Forcing the gas exhaust up the chimney will not really resolve this. You will still be trying to move air out without any air input to replace it. You may be able to install a spring loaded vent so there will be an air exchange. Something like a dryer or bath vent hood installed backwards .. this might work. There does not need to be much of a make-up air supply .. something like a 1 inch hole might be enough. I have seen this problem in a neighbors house , he weather proofed his house so good, that his fireplace would not light, no draft !

Any thoughts, concerns?

How does a draft inducer blower work


A draft inducer blower is used to create a proper draft in a chimney or exaust pipe from your water heater or furnace. In a high efficiency furnace or water heater, there is not enough heat expelled from the unit to the chimney to create a proper draft. The toxic carbon monoxide gas which is expelled through the chimney from your appliance is normally carried upward due to the rising hot air in the chimney. When appliances got more efficient (putting more heat into the water tank and less going out the chimney), manufacturers had to add this blower to help get the gases out the chimney since there wasn't enough hot air to create a draft.
Hope this helps.
