What Is A Chimney Damper?
A chimney damper is a device installed at the top of a chimney for the purpose of sealing the flue shut when the fireplace is not in use. In most cases, they are used as replacements for dampers installed just above the firebox. Lyemance & Lock top-sealing chimney dampers are as much as 90% more efficient than throat dampers due to the fact that they provide a silicone rubber gasket seal rather than metal to metal.
Chimney Dampers vs. Chimney Flue
When it comes to the difference between chimney dampers and the chimney flue, many people get the two terms mixed up. A flue and a damper each play their own specific role when it comes to the safe use of your home chimney. A flue is quite simply put any pipe or tube that draws smoke and gases out of the home through the chimney. In a fireplace, the smoke from the fire is drawn through the chimney flue and out of the home. Without this passageway, the smoke and gases would accrue inside your home and create an unhealthy and unsafe living area.
The chimney damper is a small device inside the flue and serves a few different roles. It regulates the airflow and protects against rain and pests. For a flue to work properly, it needs an effective damper. Overall, chimney dampers are meant to shut your fireplace when it is not in use. It is necessary as it keeps the warm air heating your home inside your home and not escaping up the chimney. If you have a leaky damper you could be adding hundreds of dollars to your heating costs per year.

What Our Clients Are Saying!
You have very professional and polite service men! They gave me some helpful tips about how to use my fireplace and really educated me about the chimney cleaning process.
Thanks for completing the job. By the way, I've already been referring you to friends. Your service techs were the most professional vendors I've had at my house in so long. It was a pleasure doing business with you. The stainless steel liner you installed was so inexpensive compared to the other two estimates I had. Thank you for your honesty.
I would highly recommend Always Affordable Chimney. They were very honest and cooperative. I am going through a divorce and had to wait months for my ex’s contribution and Tommy was more than patient and understanding. The work was done efficiently, neatly and to the highest level of quality. I would recommend them to anyone without hesitation.
These guys are great. The owner knows what it takes to get a job done. I had numerous issues and he found solutions, stuck with them and made it happen all while checking in on any of my concerns. I rarely come across anyone I would recommend to friends – I would sing this company's praises. From Tom and his intelligent crew to his wonderful office coordinator Justine (very professional and friendly), they came prepared, were considerate of my property, and did a fantastic job. They seem to love their work, go figure. Top of the line!
Thank you Tom for your exceptional job & advice at my Bay Shore home. I would have wasted a lot of money, time, & material if I listened to previous chimney companies. You're an angel!
