Cold air coming down chimney

Posted by Jeff H on November 18th, 2000 11:35 AM

We recently bought an older house that has a big
stone fireplace. The prior owners of the house had
converted the fireplace over to ventless propane gas
logs. We have since converted to ventless natural
gas logs. When the logs are not lit, there is a
draft whenever you walk by the fireplace.

The front of the fireplace is rough stone so it would
be tough to put in glass doors. I have checked the
damper and it does not appear to be closing properly.
Since we have the ventless logs and do not really
need to open the damper, is there anyway that we can
actually seal the flue off? Do you know of any
commercial products that would allow us to do this?

Any information that you can give us would be greatly
