Learn How Much Energy Your Fireplace Might Be Wasting and How to Solve the Problem
If you have a fireplace in your home, you probably don’t realize how much energy you’re actually wasting. There are more than 100 million homes in North America that use either a wood or gas burning fireplace. While fireplaces have many benefits including keeping you warm, they are also a sneaky source of energy loss.
Unsealed or open fireplace dampers are the main culprit contributing to energy loss. It’s been estimated that 80 to 90% of the heat produced by wood burning in an open fireplace ends up being lost up the chimney.
The average fireplace can raise your home’s energy consumption by 30%, or about $200 per year. That certainly adds up over time, so looking into more energy-efficient versions of fireplaces is a noble and worthy cause.
