Fireplaces

I thought that when a fireplace is in use, some of the heat from the house gets sucked up the chimney, instead of staying in the house & warming the air.  Therefore, using a fireplace can increase overall heating costs, because the furnace is forced to run more.  

Here, most people heat with oil, wood, or propane-----some with electricity, if there's no choice in the matter.  A few have gotten their solar power act together.  Not sure what the Amish community in ME heats with, or how they keep their greenhouses warm during early spring.  CS
