I have a traditional brick chimney which I no longer
use as I have switched to a high efficiency propane
furnace (so the smoke goes out through a small pipe).
Any estimates of how much heat loss I am having
(brick having a low R-value) and what I should about
it? (I don't think I have the energy to remove it).

I had chimney guy do mine. It's just a flat piece of metal overlapping
ceramic liner by maybe a half inch. Not sure how it was attached.
Inside, I sealed around damper with a silicone type caulk. I had closed
off the fireplace because wife did not like burning wood smell and we
put in an electric insert.
