Have you noticed your heating bills increasing each winter? If you are looking for ways to reduce costs this winter, All American Chimney Service, LLC has an answer. We carry and install the official Lock-Top Energy Saving Damper that can save you 10 percent of heat loss during the coldest months of the year. Older traditional throat dampers do not work as effectively as this type of damper because they do not seal as tightly. We would like to tell you more about how a Lock-Top damper can save on energy costs by sharing with you some information fromHomeSaver, the company who manufactures this damper.
Saves Up To $200 a Year
An old throat damper can have problems with leaking air. This means the heated air from your fireplace goes out the chimney and cold air from the outside comes into your house. When you switch from using a throat damper to a new Lock-Top Energy Saving Damper, you can see a savings of up to $200 in your winter energy costs.
Seals Tightly With a Silicone Rubber Gasket
Throat dampers cannot completely seal off your home because they do not have the silicone rubber gasket you will find on a Lock-Top Energy Saving Damper. With its tight seal, no heated or cooled air from your home can get out through the chimney. This type of damper also works as a chimney cap by eliminating downdrafts, sealing out water from rain and melted snow that can cause damage to the masonry of your chimney, and keeping birds and animals like squirrels and raccoons from being able to enter your chimney.
Sits On Top Of Your Chimney
Mounted on the top of your chimney, a Lock-Top Energy Saving Damper is in the perfect location to create an airtight seal. You can easily open and close this damper by using the cable that drops down your flue and attaches to a handle which mounts where you can reach it.
Comes With a Lifetime Warranty
Made of durable stainless steel, a Lock-Top Energy Saving Damper is constructed with cast-aluminum, and these two materials provide the factory lifetime warranty. All American Chimney Service will install this damper to ensure it provides that airtight seal with the silicone rubber gasket.
