New construction - Insulate Chase ?
I probably know this answer but I will ask it.
I have a chase that I will be installing a direct vent fireplace in.
Should I insulate it ?
Only if it requires insulation for the heating envelope (example: connected to un-insulated exterior walls)
Generally, you can install fire-rated insulation (not standard insulation) in the horizontal area where the insulated rafters (insulated roof-line) meets the chase.
