·         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.

·         When you use the fireplace, reduce heat loss by opening dampers in the bottom of the firebox (if provided) or open the nearest window slightly--approximately 1 inch--and close doors leading into the room. Lower the thermostat setting to between 50° and 55°F.

·         If you never use your fireplace, plug and seal the chimney flue.

·         If you do use the fireplace, install tempered glass doors and a heat-air exchange system that blows warmed air back into the room.

·         Check the seal on the fireplace flue damper and make it as snug as possible.

·         Purchase grates made of C-shaped metal tubes to draw cool room air into the fireplace and circulate warm air back into the room.

·         Add caulking around the fireplace hearth. Find out more techniques to improve your fireplace or wood-burning appliance's efficiency. Learn tips for safe and efficient fireplace installation and wood burning.
