Invest in a fireplace duct

If you’re building a new fireplace, install ducts around it so that cool room air is drawn in, circulated around the fire box, and ducted back into the room. The ducts are completely self-contained, and the air never mixes with the chimney smoke. If you want to have the warmed air blown out at floor level so that it will heat the room even better, install a fan in the duct system.

Homeowners with existing fireplaces can install a small-scale duct system in the firebox. This heat exchanger consists of hollow tubes bent into a shape that fits around the fire. Cool air from the floor enters the bottom of each tube, is heated by the fire, and convected out the top of the tubes and into the room.
