  1. Install a Fire back, a sheet of heavy metal, such as cast iron, to help control the heat and radiate it back into the room.
  2. Place a grid with a house in the floor of the fireplace fan. The fan pushes the air cool environment, warm in the chamber and blows the air hot into the room.
  3. Insert an inflatable chimney pillow at the base of it when it is not in use. This prevents the air that is heated from another source, such as an oven, go to the masonry fireplace.
  4. Install fireplace doors tight fitting to seal the circulation and not waste air from the room by the masonry fireplace.
  5. Place a chimney fan on the top of the chimney to help the fire burn hot. Remove the chimney cap and place the fan in place.
  6. Install a vent from the outside of the chimney of the combustion chamber to remove the air cold outside for combustion instead of air heated from the inside.
