Drafting Issues Bringing You Down? Check Out Our Makeup Air Solutions

When drafting issues are present in a fireplace, a big reason for this has to do with the air pressure in your home. Modern homes are designed to be really well-insulated, which seems like a big draw for many, but this isn’t always ideal for those looking to utilize a chimney.

The problem lies with this fact – for every cubic foot of air that exits your home, another cubic foot of air must be brought in to replace it.

What happens in homes that are too tight is that the warm air in your home rises and exits the home faster than the outside air can get in to replace it. This leaves air trying to come in through the chimney, which then causes backdrafting and a smoke-filled living space.

We Offer Long-Term Solutions

We’re guessing if you’ve had problems with makeup air and backdrafts in the past that you’ve already searched for ways to prevent this. And there are definitely things you can do like open a window, prime your flue, or adjust your damper. Unfortunately, these solutions are all short-term and, let’s face it, don’t always work. 

What you need is a long-term solution that takes the stress off of you and finally offers a way to enjoy your chimney system with the ease and peace of mind you deserve.

That’s why we invite you to optimize your air with Plusaire® products installed by our team of experts.
