    One common problem I've seen is homeowners using duct tape for sealing up air gaps on the ducts and flue. Mastic tape should be used instead. Duct tape will become brittle from heat and fall off.

    Never ever use any tapes or sealants on flue pipes. The natural draft should be pulling air into the openings. If that is not the case, you need a professional that understands drafts and corrects the issues.
