Unprotected Chimneys? The Answer is MAD!September 23, 2016
If you use the chimneys in your home, are you getting a downdraught, causing annoying smoke and smells? If your chimneys are redundant, do you have problems with birds or bats taking up residence? Even if you haven’t, an unguarded chimney can be letting cold, damp air down into the house.
