What it Means

Everyone loves a Lennox Hearth Products fireplace. And using a fireplace smartly means that you can enjoy the aesthetics of the flame without sacrificing the heating efficiency of your home. Open flues can draw heat out of your house, even when your fireplace is operating.

Consider using top-sealing dampers to keep warm air inside during winter and outside during summer. Blowers, which help circulate hot air around the room, and glass doors, which can greatly improve air intake control, provide opportunities to make your fireplace a lean, mean, burning machine.
