How about gas fireplaces? Is it safe for a bird to be in a home that uses a gas fireplace? Do they need to be put in a different room when it's on?

Thanks!

Jo Ann.

If you are positive the aluminum isn't coated, then it should be safe....the only time aluminum releases toxic fumes (that I know of ) is when it is heated to the point of decomposition....

JazzsMom,

Depends on the type of fireplace you have. Ventless fireplace inserts seem to be a hot item nowdays, but personally, I would never use a ventless around birds. Even tho the units are designed to burn clean, I just wouldn't take the chance...

Vented fireplaces in good working condition shouldn't pose any problems as long as a person uses good common sense...just keep in mind that some artificial logs are treated with metalic salts (including lead) to add color to the flame, so proper venting is extremely important.

keep in mind these fundamental security safety measures:

Chimneys, stoves and supplements wind up hot amid activity. This is a trademark related with their capacity of giving warmth in the home.

Guardians are encouraged to repel little youngsters from chimneys, stoves and additions. These apparatuses ought to be regarded with indistinguishable alert from hot range tops, broilers and garments irons. Physical obstructions, for example, movable wellbeing entryways in entryways, can be utilized to keep youngsters, and additionally pets, a protected separation away.

Manufacturing plant screens that are furnished with the item and optional obstructions, for example, unsupported screens help to lessen the danger of genuine consumes, as they can keep skin from coming into coordinate contact with the glass or fire. Be that as it may, screens likewise hold warm so contacting them isn't prompted.

Likewise with all warmth creating apparatuses, chimneys, stoves and embeds (and their encompassing material) will stay hot for a timeframe in the wake of being killed, so alert ought to be utilized constantly.
