Energy Saving Tips For Your Fireplace
Using a wood burning fireplace in the winter in conjunction with your furnace is a great way to reduce your overall energy consumption. The following tips can help you reduce heat loss from your fireplace.
Keep your fireplace damper closed unless a fire is burning. Keeping the damper open is like keeping a window wide open during the winter; it allows warm air to go right up the chimney.
If you never use your fireplace, plug and seal the chimney flue.
Check the seal on the fireplace flue damper and make it as snug as possible.
