These are the standard installation for most fireplaces. They are usually made of cast iron and are installed at the time the fireplace is built. There are generally 3 main parts to make a complete unit. The body, plate, and handle. With this type of unit installed it is likely you will feel cold air down drafting into the fireplace when it is not being used, even when “closed”.
These dampers usually have a few different aliases. Top Mount, Energy Saving, Pop Top or replacement dampers just to name a few. These units generally mount to the top of the chimney and have a handle mounted in the fireplace for easy operation. Most Top Mount fireplace dampers have a gasket and are just about airtight, this stops cold air and animals coming down your chimney, as well as not letting the heat flow up and out of your chimney. This style is also used when a damper plate is missing or the body of the original has been modified or damaged.
