Dampers are used to close the fireplace flue when not in use. Closing the damper helps keep animals, birds, twigs, and other debris from getting into your home through the chimney flue. A closed damper prevents heat from escaping your home in cold weather, and air conditioning from escaping your home in the summer.


Rich & John’s Complete Chimney Service can repair or replace faulty dampers which will lower your home’s heating and cooling costs.
