    This is why, if there is not built-in storage next the fireplace, one should have a sturdy container nearby to keep a few logs and some kindling in.

    Better be just cocoa too, not anything that’s 80 proof.

    A good roaring fireplace will make the rest of the house drafty.

    Yes, fill your neighbor’s air with smoke so they can’t breathe. The fine particulate matter from wood smoke is a serious pollutant, lodging deep in the lungs, but people romanticize wood smoke while they demonize car exhaust, which actually comes in lower on the threat level.

    I thought Joan and Wally have a furnace?

    For us we have bi-level and house has insulation. We have tried to run a fireplace built in house, we have sliding glass I call window husband states glass door, each time fireplace is going we have to open sliding glass or smoke drifts in house and fire alarm goes off does not warm house lit fireplace gets house smoky. We have new furnace and a/c installed last year. Our gas bill has been low so we keep comfy.
