In reply to fireplace draw is a complicated system by Brian on November 28th, 2002 09:22 PM [Go to top of thread]

why is it that older homes built in deep valleys and had fireplaces always had trouble with fireplace draw? I agree with you 100% that hot aire rises, but ventilation and air movement across the chimney top creates voids and causes a suction that also increases the rate of which smoke vacates the chimney and fire box.
