Improving Fireplace Efficiency

How effective is your fireplace as a heater in your home? If your fireplace is 15 years older or more, it may “actually waste more energy than it creates throughout the season,” according to “How to Make Your Fireplace More Efficient” by Mother Earth News.

Of course, replacing your fireplace with a newer, more energy-efficient model, is ideal, but many of us are looking for a quicker, less costly fix. From the simple addition of fireplace doors and cast-iron firebacks that reflect heat back into the room, to inserts and inflatable plugs that stop warm air from exiting through the chimney when the fireplace is in use, check out Mother Earth Newssolutions for making your fireplace a more effective heater.
