I have a wood burning fireplace insert, that is not currently being used.
Now that it's cold in my area (27F), I've noticed that there is quite a draft coming from the fireplace. How can I cover/insulate the fireplace to stop the draft?
- Must be wife approved (so not too ugly).
- Must stop the draft.
- Must be easily removable.
- Must be safe when fireplace is in use.
I've seen solutions where a sewn blanket is hung over the fireplace, using hook and loop tape. I have my fears that the hook and loop tape would not fair so well while a fire is burning, but I'm not sure how hot the face of the fire box gets (since we've not had a fire yet).
