I find myself oddly drawn to Stack Overflow right now.

comment How can I prevent my house from smelling of smoke after having a fire in my fireplace?
@bcworkz. The cover for my fireplace has two glass doors, designed to be closed, with a grill at the bottom with vent holes that can be closed as well. I have no issue closing the flue but getting a good evacuation is apparently the key to removing the smoke smell. How can I do that? Is it truly a crap shoot with the proper extinguishing of expiring coals?

OK. So assuming the flue stays open to clear combustibles and smell, I wonder (aloud) if closing the glass doors and leaving the tiny vents open are enough to allow the circulation for air to rise out the chimney. What is going to move that air up and out once it's cooled?

I live in Minnesota, have city water, and no water softener, I'm not sure I would really recognize hard water without serious stains in my showers. I'm curious, how does the amount of water coming from under the rim affect flushing?
