ENERGY SAVINGS

The cost of heating and cooling a home is getting more expensive every year!  Why let that nice inside treated air escape up the chimney or allow the outside untreated air to enter your home and make your heater and air conditioner run more often.  The design of the Fireplace Fashion Cover, with it’s 3 layer construction and magnetic seal, is designed to interrupt the constant air flow into and out of your home and save you energy dollars,  All Year Long–Winter And Summer.Since the average monthly heating or air conditioning cost are in excess of $400.00, and most utility companies report that at least 35% of our energy bill is do to heating and cooling the air, we all need to stop wasting our energy and dollars. The Fireplace Fashion Cover will save you energy and dollars 365 days a year by insulating and isolating your living area from the outside air, hot or cold.  No one wants to spend money for energy that is wasted.  Let’s all stop the fireplace chimney from burning up our energy dollars.

Our Fireplace Fashion Cover have been used by Habitat for Humanity to close off an unused fireplace and save the homeowner energy and money. Our own fireplace, with a functional damper and glass doors still sent our heated and cooled air up the chimney.  We saw an immediate saving on our heating bill of 13% per year as soon as we installed our Fireplace Fashion Cover.

Your Fireplace Chimney Is Like A Giant Straw Sucking Your Expensive

Heated And Cooled Air From Your Home And Sending It Outside!!!!!

Researchers have studied this effect to determine the amount of heat loss through a fireplace, and the results are amazing!! One remarkable research study showed that an open damper on an unused fireplace, in a well insulated house, can raise overall heating energy consumption by 30%.Another recent study showed that for many consumers, their heating bills may be more than $500 higher each winter due to air leakage and wasted energy caused by fireplaces! The fireplace is like a giant straw–sucking the heated air from you home. This is like leaving a window open all year.

Save Money–Your Fireplace Could Be Costing You $1000 Or More Per Year!!

Fireplaces are the largest intentional opening in the home, costing US families over $6.1 BILLION (based on figures as of March 2005) each year in wasted energy costs. When fireplace dampers are closed they do not provide an airtight seal and are quite ineffective at controlling air leakage. Most fireplace dampers are left open.A recent study showed that 80% of fireplace dampers are inadvertently left in the open position. Many fireplaces have broken and/or missing dampers. Energy Options Northwest had this impressive finding; the effective leakage area of a fireplace damper average is about 30 square inches when closed. The majority of energy loss in the home is due to air leakage. Air leakage, or infiltration, occurs when outside air enters a house uncontrollably through cracks and openings. Because the fireplace is a wide open hole to the outdoors, this will cause your air conditioning or heating system to either push air out of the fireplace, or worse, suck air in through the fireplace.

Any Fireplace Draftstopper Will Usually Pay For Itself In One Heating Season.

Save Energy–Can We Afford To Heat And Cool The Outside Air?

In an apparent violation of the Model Energy Codes, there currently exists a requirement in the International Residential Code that the fireplace dampers must be permanently blocked open when a vented gas log set is installed. This is intended to sufficiently prevent the spillage of combustion products into the room when the fireplace is used, and to prevent build-up of gas should the pilot light be inadvertently be extinguished. The unintended consequence of blocking the damper open is, of course, significant energy loss when the fireplace is not being used. This requirement is not in agreement with the Model Energy Codes that require all openings to be caulked, gasketed, weatherstripped, or otherwise sealed to limit Air Infiltration And Heat Exhausting.   http://www.energysavers.gov/seasonal/tips_winter.html

The Inside Of Your Chimney Should Be Part Of The Outside Of Your House

Not The Inside Your Home

The fireplace damper does not completely stop air movement up or down the flue. A seal is not formed even when the damper is closed. Infiltration around the perimeter of the damper is considerable in most cases, since oxidation, residues, and warping, do to excessive heat, have contributed to the size of the gaps. A single layer of metal is all that separates treated inside air from the outside elements – a loose fitting layer at that! If any other opening in the building were to be covered only by a loose fitting sheet of metal, the homeowner would be alarmed and give immediate consideration to the problem.


Since The Fireplace Damper Is Always Hidden From View, It Usually Goes Unnoticed,

And Is Left In The Open Position,Long After The Last Fire.

Save Money–No Expensive Heated Or Cooled Air Going Up The Chimney!

An open or poorly sealed damper can draw heated and cooled air up the chimney even when the fireplace is not in use. This can occur in both heating and cooling seasons, creating a net energy loss on an annual basis.

Energy loss through a fireplace happens year round if special measures are not taken to prevent it from happening. Even with the damper closed, air infiltration still takes place. Heat loss occurs up the chimney even when the fireplace is not being used. In summer, cooled air escapes through the closed, but not airtight, damper.  www.energysavers.gov/seasonal/tips_winter.html

Saves Energy–Air Conditioning And Heaters Run Less Often.

Even brand new dampers may not close tightly. Dampers can become warped after the first hot fire, they may even be installed incorrectly to begin with. Let’s get rid of open fireplace dampers that waste our valuable resources, and cover that hole in the wall!

A chimney is designed to remove by-products from a fire by creating a “draft”. This “draft” also pulls air from your home and up the chimney. Air that you’ve PAID to cool or heat, even without a fire in the fireplace, there still will be a “draft” in the chimney as long as there’s a temperature difference between indoors and outdoors.  www.energysavers.gov/your_home
