    Customer Questions & Answers
    By Joyce from Ware, MA on November 27, 2014
    I have a fireplace opening that has an arched top which is made out of field stone which is very uneven. How does this draft guard attach to the fireplace? What could I do to make it work for my fireplace?
    By Tyler M. on November 28, 2014

    Answer:
    This draft guard includes magnets that allow it to attach to the metal facing of the fireplace and hold firmly in place. Due to your arch top and uneven surround, you will need to do some on-site modifications, and of course ensure that the listed dimensions are sufficient for your opening. We do have a larger version available if necessary:

    How well does this item close off the opening? Does it leave any air gaps?
    By eFireplaceStore on June 3, 2014

    Answer:
    This product stops a vast majority of back drafting and loss of room air up the chimney, but it is not gasketed. As such, there is not a perfect air seal. To achieve a perfect seal, a rope gasket would need to be added to the perimeter of the cover. Another option is to install a top mounted fireplace damper, such as the Lock-Top 8 in. x 13 in. Energy-Saving Chimney Damper. Top mount dampers are by far the most effective energy savers, as they seal against a level silicone gasket that is part of the damper assembly, as opposed to the uneven surface of a cast iron damper or the veneer surface of the fireplace facing.

    How does this cover attach to the fireplace?

    Answer:
    The guard will include magnets that allow it to attach to the metal facing of the fireplace and hold firmly in place.

    By Cathy from Raleigh, NC on February 15, 2014
    I'd like to use this to cover the fireplace when the fire has gone out, but is still a little warm or has gone out altogether. I like to wait until the next morning (or 8 hours or so after fire goes out) to close the damper. During that time, cold air is coming into the house and my warm air is going through the chimney. I need a cover to put over the fireplace during those hours and at all times when there is no fire.

    I know this product is wrought iron and should be fireproof, but what about the black powder finish? I would certainly not be putting this over the fireplace opening when there is actually a fire still going - just when the embers have cooled down to almost no heat or no heat at all. I'm just making sure about the fireproof point for my own peace of mind. I would be using this in the off season also to prevent any loss of a/c also.

    Answer:
    This item can indeed be used for the purpose that you are intending. The powecoated finish is able to withstand temperatures of 500 degrees without losing its color. As such, there will definitely not be a problem with covering the fireplace after the fire has burnt down.

    Helps to Stop Drafts

    We purchased this product for our bedroom fireplace. It really seems like it has helped to stop the drafts from coming in. The package included some magnets that don?t work because our fireplace is made from slate.

    This product does the job it?s intended to do. I am happy with how well it blocks off the drafts from the fireplace. I do use a throw to seal off the hinged areas.

    This product works well to keep the draft away from my fireplace. I do use a throw blanket to keep the hinged areas sealed off. Magnets are included that work great to hold the throw perfectly in place.
