To guarantee a satisfactory amount of air flow for the fire to combust safely and efficiently, a competentteam will evaluate the situation and fit vents in locations around the room, or beneath the floors, thus resolving this problem. Unused and blocked up chimney flues may also need to have air vents installed since they can sometimes trap moist air within them and cause damp to occur inside the chimney breast.
