Top Mount Chimney Dampers are devices for saving energy that are installed on top of a chimney to shut the flue when the chimney is not in use as well as regulate the amount of draft needed when burning a fire. These are often used as replacement dampers for the traditional fireplace throat dampers that are installed just above the firebox when a masonry chimney is built. These top sealing dampers are much more effective than throat dampers as they provide a silicone rubber gasket seal instead of metal to metal seal that doesn’t allow saving of energy.
