Victorian Rumford Conversions
The links on this page, along with the Instructions for building new Rumfords, an article on fire safety in historic chimneys and an article written for Sweeps, will show you how to improve a fireplace by re-building it as a Rumford fireplace, or by "Rumfordizing" it.
Hopefully the pictures will show you why. But, besides making it look better, "Rumfordizing" a fireplace will make it more efficient, draw better and make sure it's safe and meets modern building code standards.
