How Does a Fireplace Work?

Fireplaces work by creating a non-combustible environment, where a fire can be started, built, and maintained, and works in tandem with your chimney. In a masonry fireplace, the chimney is the passageway for smoke and gasses to be removed safely from your home. The part that connects the chimney to the firebox is called the smoke chamber, the smoke chamber is built like an upside-down funnel and is the transition from a wide opening in the firebox to the narrower opening of the chimney.

A fire is built in the inner hearth. You may notice that the back wall in your hearth is angled slightly forward before it meets the damper, this angle allows heat to be pushed out into the home while the smoke and gasses rise into the chimney, thereby heating your home safely. In a prefabricated fireplace, there is no smoke chamber the flue comes directly out of the firebox and goes straight up to the roof the damper is located at the throat of the firebox to allow for ventilation and an updraft when in use.
