Insulation Services Case Studies: Drafty Fireplace-Warrenton, VA

Thursday, March 23rd, 2017 by Justin Dobson


A drafty fireplace was driving this Warrenton, VA homeowner crazy.  They tried everything from pillows in front of the fireplace, to plastic shrink wrap, to cardboard taped to it.  All the while, they couldn't use the fireplace with any of those solutions.


Comfenergy fixes drafty gas fireplaces very often.  Any time the thermal barrier (insulation) and the air barrier (drywall) are separated, you'll have a comfort and energy issue.  The following pictures show how we fixed the fireplace for this homeowner so they could use it and not have to feel the drafts.
