Many love the summertime heat but that doesn’t mean you want to be exposed to it in your home. A cool home feels great on a hot day but sometimes the fireplace can ruin this. Don’t let your cold air escape up the chimney this summer!
This not only makes it hard to maintain a comfortable temperature, but it can also put a strain on your monthly energy bills, as well. The harder your AC is working, the more you’ll wind up paying, putting a dent in your bank account, and triggering a lot of stress.
If you are looking for a solution that will last for the long haul, consider investing in an energy-top damper. Learn more about these below, then call our team right away, so we can get yours installed.
All About Energy-Top Dampers
How does an energy-top damper work? Similar to throat dampers, they can be opened and closed with a chain or handle located inside of your fireplace. Rather than being installed at the base of your chimney, they are installed at the top of it. Why is this better? It allows them to work similarly to a chimney cap to keep birds, rain, and debris out of your chimney.
Along with this, they provide a tight seal with a rubber gasket ensuring no air gets in and no air gets out when the damper is not in use. There’s no doubt about it. When you invest in an energy-top damper, you get the protection you deserve!
To top it off, energy-top dampers are known for their streamlined appearance, ensuring your curb appeal is not affected at all. In fact, when closed, most cannot be seen from the street. There is no doubt that these are a solid investment for your home and chimney. Get in touch with our sweeps today to get yours installed!
What if I Already Have a Throat Damper?
Throat dampers work ok, but they don’t do a great job of keeping conditioned air inside. Because they are made of metal, they do not seal very well and are prone to rust. Rust can make them hard to operate and warp the metal.
