What is the California building code requiring all gas

Customer Question

What is the California building code requiring all gas insert fireplaces that are being installed must have the sealed glass fronts on them? They apparently cannot have doors on the fireplace that open and expose the gas logs.

Dear Customer,

California Green Building Standards Code 4.503.1

This code section requires that fireplaces circulate exterior air (not interior air) - this separates the two in an effort to reduce inefficient HVAC operations in the room by the home's primary system, and to try to prevent fire conditions in the home.
