Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
Air Conditioning in a room with an open fireplace: Pointless?
I've moved into a rented house and my bedroom has a fireplace. It's also heading into summer so I've set up my air-conditioner. And it's occurred to me that all that refridgerated air will probably wind up going up the chimney.
So I need to cover this thing over. I tried with plastic and the thing acted like a diaphragm, a noisy one that woke me up all the time. Can you buy fireplace covers? Would a piece of wood sealed with something like blu-tac or gaffer/cloth tape work? I've tried googling for help on this and I've only come up with renovation ideas for bricking over or tiling a fireplace.
