Homeowners spend millions each year caulking, replacing windows & doors, and weather stripping to make their home more energy efficient. But, one of the biggest culprits of energy loss is the chimney.
When you have a fire in your fireplace, the chimney works great. It acts as a funnel and takes smoke and dangerous gasses away.
But, your chimneys work even when there is no fire. This is the easiest escape route for the warm air in your home. You can tell that air is escaping through your chimney if your chimney has cold air in it or if you feel powerful drafts from very small gaps in your windows or doors.
Cold air can't get in unless it is going out at the same speed.
How do you stop this?
Insulation helps keep your house cool in the summer!
