Energy Top Chimney Damper
Energy Top Chimney Damper
A masonry fireplace with traditional metal throat dampers are responsible for on average 8% of the total heating cost. The draft metal tarot dampers do not provide a tight seal allowing cold air to be drawn into the home when the fireplace is not being used. The Energy Top chimney damper is a great addition to lower your heating and cooling cost for any home with a masonry fireplace. The easy spring action damper is fitted with a silicone gasket seal on the lid. When closed it makes an airtight seal that prevents cold air from being drawn down the fireplace when not in use and also prevents the cool air conditioning from going up the chimney in the summer months. The Energy Top damper will also prevent any driving rain and insects from entering the chimney when the damper is closed.
The Energy Top chimney damper is easy to install. You will only need a few common tools such as a hammer, wire cutter and a drill with a 1/4" drill bit. The Energy Top damper Includes 30 ft. cut to fit cable, fireplace bracket, cool-touch spring handle, mounting adhesive and hardware as well as a lifetime warranty. Simply use the mounting adhesive to glue the Energy Top damper to the top of the masonry chimney and lower the cable with the chain spring handle down the flue and mount the chain bracket to the wall of the fireplace. Adjust the chain spring handle to the fireplace bracket and you're done. Pull down and lock the chain handle in the fireplace bracket to close the damper and simply release the chain handle from the fireplace bracket to allow the damper to spring open when you are ready to start a fire.
When the Energy Top chimney damper is open, it is the least restrictive top sealing damper in the industry. When open, the Energy Top damper lid will act as a rain cap to prevent excess rain from entering the chimney when the fireplace is being used. When the Energy Top damper is closed it is barely visible given its low profile design.
Note: Do not use top dampers with gas logs - failure to open the damper with gas logs could result in carbon monoxide to back up in the home. Also, in the event of a gas leak & gas is trapped in the chimney, it could result in an explosion.
