I have a fire place in my house and its open but its non-working. Its unsafe to use, who ever built the house built it wrong. Since its open cold air is always pouring in which makes the heat stay on to try and keep my place warm. Anyone know how I can fix this that isnt expensive? I already tried stuffing pillows up to block air but its not working.

Ply wood it up. ply wood the entire open face of the fire place up if you do not plan to use it or get it fixed any time soon.
we had to do that with a house we had. The fireplace was nice, but was safe to use and we were getting bats and good
drafts thru it. So we measured the entire front face and liquid nailed the wood to it. You can paint if black to make it look
like it's a fake fireplace then put a black iron/fireplace grate infront of it.
