throat damperFireplace throat dampers are used to regulate the flow of air from inside your home from moving up the chimney and being released outside. They are usually made of a cast iron plate that can be opened or closed with the help of a lever or handle. However, even the top-of-the-line plates do not hold a strong seal and you can lose valuable energy. Recent studies have shown brand new fireplace throat dampers can leak up to $200 worth of heating and cooling per year. Imagine what you may be losing with that old rusted throat damper that you have been meaning to replace. Do yourself a favor and start getting the most out of your home’s energy source - convert your fireplace from a throat damper to a top sealing chimney damper. Top sealing chimney dampers create a tight fit on the flue to ensure that your conditioned air cannot leak out through your chimney. They have been proven to be up to 90% more efficient than the traditional fireplace throat dampers. locktop chimney damper

There are a few different models of chimney top dampers to choose from – the most popular being the Lock-Top and Lyemance brands. The Lock-Top chimney damper is constructed of a stainless steel lid that is attached to a cast aluminum frame by stainless steel springs. The Lock-Top chimney damper also features a safety device that will automatically lock the damper so it will stay open in the case of a chimney fire. locktop2 chimney damperThe Lock-Top II chimney damper is complete with an included chimney cap and your choice of a 3/4” or 5/8” mesh animal guard. lyemance openThe Lyemance energy-saving damper is made out of solid non-rusting aluminum and features a silicone rubber seal that creates a tight hold at the top of your flue. lyemance closedOpening and closing your top sealing chimney damper is a breeze with the long cables that are threaded down the flue and mount with the handle to the inside of your firebox.
