Fireplace 1 causes smoke in fireplace 2
I have an old colonial that was renovated (spray foam, very tight). I had a moron mason rebuild the center chimney. I have a large kitchen fireplace that has two flues and a brick oven (separate flue).
Behind it in the parlor is another fireplace (separate flue).
Upstairs I have two bedrooms each with a small fireplace (each has its own flue).
When I light the kitchen fireplace I can smell smoke in one of the bedrooms.
The chimney has new dampers on the top of the chimney. Smoke can be seen in the flue.
If I open the bedroom flue smoke pours in.
I called a chimney sweep and he indicated the top dampers look sealed and suggested installing a liner in the big fireplace because the clay pipe might be cracked and its leaking into the chimney.
Does this sound correct?
I already paid a ton of money on the chimney. there is an air vent in each chimney put it does not appear to be pulling air in.
