Open Fireplaces

Sealing over your fireplace or replacing it with an electric one will save a significant amount of heat from flying up your chimney and money from your wallet. Covering the opening completely or using a chimney balloon are the most common ways to achieve this. Installing damper flaps (that control the circle of air) is another easy way to reduce heat loss if you still like to use your fireplace.

If you’re in a rental property, you can also consider a temporary cover or seal in the chimney.
