Don’t you just love the ambiance from your wood burning fireplace.

But… once the fire is out and embers are completely cold, don’t forget to close that damper when your fireplace is not in use.

The damper, located above the firebox (where you burn the wood), is a metal plate that acts as a stopper to prevent the warm air that is inside your home from escaping up the chimney and the cold outside air from coming down inside your house.
