Could You Benefit From A Top-Sealing Chimney Damper?
How much would it cost you to leave your door cracked open all winter? If your chimney does not have a top-sealing damper, this is basically what you are doing all year long—hemorrhaging your energy dollars right out of your chimney. Whether you have a fire lit or not, your chimney is constantly drawing warm air—warm air that you paid big bucks for—into the fireplace and expelling it to the outside. Have you noticed that it’s often noticeably colder in the room where your fireplace is? This would be why.
Replacing A Throat Damper With A Top-Sealing Damper
If they have dampers at all, most older hearths have throat dampers, located just above the firebox. Top-sealing dampers have since been found to be far more effective, which means lots of old chimneys in Sacramento still need to be retrofitted with top-sealing dampers.
When installing a top-sealing damper, our technicians bypass your existing inefficient damper and create an airtight seal at the very top of the chimney. You’ll find that top-sealing dampers are easier to operate than your existing throat damper—no more bending over with the flashlight looking for the damper handle. The top sealing damper’s handle is mounted right in the fireplace, easy to see and easy to reach. Top-sealing dampers are also the best choice when your chimney’s existing damper is frozen (rusted) open or shut.
Tell your chimney sweep that you’re ready to “close the door” on cold drafts, expensive heating bills, and difficult-to-operate dampers by purchasing your top-sealing damper today.
