You can keep energy in your home by creating a tight seal at the top of your chimney. Using a chimney damper stops cold air from coming down the flue and wasting dollars by letting warm air escape. Our technicians are trained to determine the appropriate chimney damper size for the most effective seal and will help you choose from the many style options we have available.
Chimney Caps protect the chimney. On rainy days, the caps are there to prevent the rain from falling straight down into the flue system. This will also keep debris from forming. Everytime water falls into the chimney it has a higher chance that the creosote glazes and tars. Chimney caps also protect the house from stray sparks, that can cause hazard to your home.
Chimney Caps come in a variety of sizes, material and shapes. Caps are typically composed of stainless steel, copper and galvanized metal.
Having a damper is a very important part of your fireplace chimney. The damper prevents heated air loss through the chimney as well as down drafts when the chimney is unused. These are hooked on top of the chimney, which allows it to close and seal properly.
