Energy Top


Four Season Protection
Save on Utility Costs

Energy Top Plus

The Energy Top is now available with the added protection of a built in Stainless Steel Cap. It comes completely assembled as one unit and it's called Energy Top Plus. The Energy Top Plus, when closed, seals out rain, snow and sleet while sealing in "paid" heat and air conditioning. When open it has the protection of a conventional chimney cap.

The ENERGY TOP and Energy Top+ Dampers are a top mounted damper that also serves as a chimney cap. When closed, this low profile damper is a great solution for saving “paid” energy dollars for historical homes with leaky or missing dampers.
Heat loss up the fireplace chimney accounts for an average 8% of your home heating costs! Energy Top and Energy Top+ Dampers help prevent this heat loss. Stay warmer and save money!

  • Four Season Protection for your chimney.
  • Precision engineered mechanism is easier to open and close than throat dampers
  • Serves as a chimney cap when closed.
  • Doesn’t require a fire safety control
  • Easily accessible handle mounts inside of fireplace
  • Defaults to open position for maximum safety
  • Lifetime Warranty

ENERGY TOP and ENERGY TOP Plus Dampers are made for use only with open woodburning masonry fireplace chimneys and are NOT suitable for use in these installations:

  • Don’t use on chimneys serving vented gas logs. Vented gas logs require the fireplace damper to be removed completely or fixed to a permanently open position; this is to assure that soot, fumes and carbon monoxide do not enter your home.
  • Use only on vent-free gas logs if approved by the appliance manufacturer and the local authority having jurisdiction. However, we don’t recommend it because the moisture generated from the gas logs could damage the chimney structure.
  • Don’t use on chimneys serving other fuels, wood stoves or other appliances such as inserts, furnaces, etc.


Energy Top and Energy Top+ Dampers can be installed by homeowners who feel comfortable working on a roof, but U.S. Fireplace Products Inc. strongly recommends you use the services of a qualified chimney sweep who can also inspect your chimney and provide other valuable home safety services.

Energy Top and Energy Top+ Dampers may be used on round factory-built chimneys venting a fireplace. An RS Adapter for solid-pack chimney or a RS Adapter for air-cooled chimney is available to make this transition. Note: This may affect the fireplace listing. Check with the fireplace manufacturer before installing the adapter and damper.
