The Top Damper is now available with the additional protection of a built-in Stainless Steel Cap. It comes completely assembled as one unit and it's called the Top Damper Plus! When closed, the Top Damper Plus 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. Gain the added benefit of a cap and lose none of the functionality of the Top Damper.
The Top Damper effectively seals in “paid” energy dollars. It mounts to the chimney top and seals with a flat rubber gasket when closed. The Top Damper is constructed of premium stainless steel and cast-aluminum and won’t rust like conventional cast-iron dampers. The control mounts in the firebox for quick and easy access and defaults to the open position.
Heat loss up the fireplace chimney accounts for an average 8% of your home heating costs! The Top Damper helps prevent this heat loss. Stay warmer and save money!
The Top Damper is made for use only with open woodburning masonry fireplace chimneys and are NOT suitable for use in these installations:
The Top Damper 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.
The Top Damper 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.
