Fireplace Dampers

A fireplace damper (often called a chimney damper) is the door between the fireplace firebox and the chimney flue. Problems with the damper are often cause of cold air drafts.

Top Sealing Damper Caps are those where the damper serves as both a cap and a damper. It is installed at the top of the chimney flue and is operated by means of a cable which extends from the damper cap to a bracket in the fireplace. It is a spring-loaded system that can be adjusted pursuant to the opening you want to achieve. Their great virtue is both their airtight performance and unlike a traditional damper, they can be installed without a firebox rebuild.

Since choosing a proper chimney cap is daunting and involves reflection upon the use of the chimney and a careful measurement to ensure a proper fit, call Full Service Chimney, Kansas City’s Premier Chimney Sweep, for advice and professional installation of the cap that’s best suited for your chimney.
