English term or phrase: including not blocking chimneys
If houses are unoccupied for long periods try to have some form of natural ventilation, ***including not blocking chimneys***, available.

Handelt es sich hier um "nicht blockierende Schornsteine/Rauchabzüge" oder lese ich das einfach nur falsch und es handelt sich hier um eine - mir bisher unbekannte - Form des "einschliesslich, aber nicht begrenzt auf..."???

Vielen Dank im Voraus!

dazu gehört auch, dass man Kamine nicht blockiert
Explanation:
I think they are talking about using just about anything that will allow air to circulate; so, if you leave the damper open and don't put a screen or insulation inside the firebox, you are not blocking the chimney
(Usually, when a house is empty, it's actually a good idea to block the chimney, or you might have birds or raccoons move in)
