With the cold winter months behind us, don’t forget to close up your fireplace during the warmer seasons ahead. It’s important to keep the damper closed in your fireplace. Having an open flue is essentially equal to having a small window open in your home. The open flue can make your home up to 8% less energy-efficient, and an inactive but open fireplace is an invitation for wild animals to find their way in. Just give it a firm close to help seal up your house.
