    As the holiday season quickly approaches, many begin to look for ways to cut costs in other areas of our lives.  One great way to save some cash is by reducing your heating and energy bills.  While the fireplace is often considered an additional expense that only adds to the increased utility costs during the winter season, there are ways to reduce its effects on your holiday budget.

    Here are ten ways to save some cash while maintaining and using your home’s fireplace:Family by Fire

    1. Seal any leaks around the chimney.
    2. Keep your flue clean to ensure an efficient fire that will heat your home properly.
    3. Close the damper when the fireplace is not in use.
    4. Add caulking to the fireplace surrounds to prevent drafts and lost heat.
    5. Lower the thermostat when the fireplace is in use.
    6. If using a gas unit, utilize the fan to push the warm area throughout the room and home.
    7. Purchase dry, seasoned hardwood from a reputable supplier in bulk for reduced fuel costs.
    8. Install tempered glass doors to the unit to prevent cold air from exiting through the flue.  
    9. When possible, close off the area that is being heated by the fireplace.
    10. Run your ceiling fans clockwise (reverse) can help better circulate the warm air within the space.
