In Need of Fireplace Damper Repair or a New Clean-Out Door? Call Hudson Chimney

If you’re searching for a reason as to why your energy bill might be astronomical, you may want to look up – within your chimney, that is! If your system is not currently equipped with a top-sealing damper, it could very well be the cause of you needing to pay more, only to receive less. Why? Because the cast iron throat dampers commonly found in homes with older, traditional masonry chimneys are not nearly as efficient at sealing off the system (when it’s not in use) as their top-mount counterparts. Due to their location and the way in which they are situated within the appliance, they’re known for causing issues with draft and improper airflow – especially over time.

The good news is that installing a new, top-sealing fireplace damper is an easy and affordable way to lower your energy bill and increase system performance. Not sure if your system even has a damper? No problem! Top-sealing dampers are the perfect solution even in these cases because of their location and the ease of installation.

We Sell & Install High Quality Top-Sealing Dampers

We told you you could save, but what we didn’t tell you was how much.

Here at Hudson Chimney, we’re proud to carry Energy Top and Energy Top+ dampers which come with a lifetime warranty and have the tightest seal in the industry. These dampers will help you prevent unnecessary energy loss keeping you warmer and saving you money.

  • The damper does double-duty, serving as a chimney cap when closed.
  • The damper has an easily accessible handle that mounts inside your fireplace, pictured above.
  • The damper’s unique mechanism makes it easier to open and close than traditional throat dampers.
  • The damper is constructed of stainless steel and aluminum so components won’t rust or corrode.
  • The damper always opens to the perfect pre-set height and defaults to open position for maximum safety.

What Is a Chimney Clean-Out Door?

Designed to help you maintain the health and overall functionality of your appliance, chimney clean-out doors are installed at the back of your system and provide an easy way for you to remove ash and other burned remnants. Despite the fact that there are many codes and regulations about the importance of clean-out doors, not all chimneys have them. Not only do these doors offer a convenient way to remove all the gunk, they’re also valuable in helping detect problems inside your chimney flue interior. For instance, if you’re clearing out the ash pit through the clean-out door and you find masonry fragments, your liner has been compromised and requires immediate attention.

Fortunately, though, the professional experts here at Hudson Chimney can install a chimney clean-out door that will allow you to clean ash from your fireplace with ease. Available in a wide variety of sizes, styles, and builds, our fireplace and hearth experts can help you find just the right product for your specific appliance.
