Who doesn’t love the smell, sound and heat from a crackling fireplace on a cold winter’s day? While it may not be the most efficient way to heat a home, it sure is nice. To maximize the potential of your fireplace, consider investing in something called a C-shaped metal tube grate. It holds the firewood, but it’s designed to draw cool air from the room into the tubes and circulate hot air from the fire back into the room. There’s no special assembly to use it; it comes fully assembled, and you simply place it inside your fireplace.
