    Question:

    Do you have any information on what could happen to a Heatilator gas fireplace that has set in a house under construction for one month, and has been rained on for three of the four weeks. The insulation has been wet for one month and rust has formed at the tube feeding the gas ports



    Answer:

    MY biggest concern would be the gas valve itself. These are not designed to be wet for long periods of time. In any case, the excess moisture is not good and the situation should be mentioned to the manufacturer to see if they have any suggestions for avoiding potential problems.
