Why Choose a Top-Sealing Damper
- Usually, they are installed at the top of the flue, acting as both a damper and a chimney cap.
- They close the flue from the top-down, preventing debris, animal intrusion, water penetration, and even preventing humid summer air from entering.
- Top-Sealing Dampers have an airtight seal that prevents any airflow from entering or leaving the chimney system.
Top-Sealing Dampers Save You Money
One of the most common complaint chimney sweeps get is a stinky chimney and fireplace. This is a common issue in the summer because the air trapped inside the chimney is being drawn back down. When you install a top-sealing damper, it will improve the odors coming from your fireplace. If your chimney persist to stink after installing a top-sealing damper, then it’s a good idea to schedule a routine chimney sweep to clean the soot and creosote out.

Your top-sealing damper will still work as a damper. You must open it while a fire is being lit and burning, and you can close it after the fire is completely out. Once closed, no air will escape, so it is unsafe to close it while there is still a fire. You can engage and disengage the damper with a cord that reaches from the top of the flue all the way to the hearth.
