Who screwed the pooch? HVAC or Fireplace guy.

You gotta wonder who was there last. I couldn't believe it when I saw it. Was a contractor REALLY that stupid?

In case you are wondering, that is the heating and cooling return directly over the fireplace insert.

It's a fireplace that should never be used.

It has to be purely a decoration. The insert is only meant to be used with unvented gas logs. There is no chimney.

And, there's no hearth extension.

That isn't a fatal flaw. I busted a ventless fireplace a couple of years ago for not having an extension, and the builder gleefully sent me the attached instruction manual. See page 7. The manual even says combustibles--except for carpet or vinyl--can be installed directly in front of the firebox.

I know, I know. Dumb . . .
