HEAT LOSS FROM THE FIREPLACE

The major complaint from most fireplace owners is that their fireplace cost them more money in wasted energy when it is not burning than it saves when it is burning.  Since most of the time our fireplaces are not burning, this cost us energy and money all year.  Your chimney’s “reason for existence” is to draw large amounts of air into the chimney then up and out of the home.  This is why you do not have smoke coming in the room when the fireplace is burning, the chimney draft pulls the smoke and your heated indoor air out of your home.  The problem is when the fireplace is idle, the chimney is still drawing the air from the home and exhausting it up the chimney.Many conditions will influence if your treated air is going up the chimney to the outside or the cold air drafts are coming down the chimney and into your home. Conditions such as chimney height ( the taller the chimney, the greater the draft ), air temperature, air pressure, humidity levels and the closeness of other structures or trees to your chimney will determine if you have a downdraft or an updraft, you may also have both at different times of the year.

The Fireplace Fashion Cover will interrupt this air flow, in either direction, and stop your heated and cooled air from escaping from your home and the untreated air outside from entering your home in the form cold fireplace drafts.
When insulating our homes, we seal every gap around doors, windows, electrical sockets, heat vents, etc.  Why doesn’t anyone seal up the fireplace?  We install new windows and doors to save energy.  Why doesn’t anyone seal up the fireplace?   There is definitely a gap to the outside all of the time, even when the damper is closed. Whether you have a wood burning fireplace or a gas burning fireplace, there is a large hole in your home to the outside.   Most of the time this hole, called a chimney, is never closed off.

Typical Gas Fireplace Installation

Typical Gas Fireplace Installation

Shown here is what a typical pre-fabricated gas fireplace looks like on installation.  The air chamber around the exhaust pipe in the center is usually not insulated to allow the heat of the exhaust pipe to dissipate.  This unheated area has a vent to the outside that allows this exhaust pipe heat to exit the home and the cold outside air to enter your home.  The air chamber around this exhaust pipe in the center is usually not insulated to allow the heat of the exhaust pipe to dissipate.  This is the reason you get cold outside air from the fireplace 365 days a year. This also allows for the transfer of cold air through all the metal and glass areas of your fireplace assembly.

“I looked for over one year for a product like this, and I’m so glad I found your site. Just received the cover and it is magnificent. Now I am also a seamstress, but never thought to make this type of cover myself. Beverly, you did a wonderful job! Believe me, I checked out the quality of the workmanship and it is perfect. Not a stitch out of place! Best of all, it does what it’s advertised to do, and does it well….insulates the fireplace. Thanks Beverly!”  MJ S.–Pennsylvania
