When it comes to saving energy and keeping your home at the temperature you want, a tight-sealing damper is key. Learn more below!

Energy Efficient Products

Many homeowners look for ways to save money on their month to month expenditures. One way to lower that energy bill is to ensure your damper has a strong fit and a tight seal so that the air inside your home cannot escape. Whether it’s heated in the wintertime or air conditioning in the summer, you deserve a comfortable atmosphere, without having to break the bank. Let us take a look at your damper today, to ensure everything is in tip-top shape.

One product we highly recommend is an energy top damper. These devices are placed at the top of your chimney or flue so that your home stays warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer. With throat dampers, the air from outside sits in your chimney and keeps that area around your fireplace uncomfortable, even with a tight seal blocking it out. Yet, with energy top dampers, outside weather doesn’t stand a chance!

These products also protect against animal entry, downdrafts, and water damage. There really isn’t a better choice! Start saving your dollars today by investing in one of SirVent’s quality energy-top dampers.

Cleaning Out Debris

Another problem homeowners may face is dampers that need some cleaning. If dirt, soot, creosote, and more pile up on top of your damper, it will not operate as well. And if you see water damage and/or rust, then cracks, holes, and other deterioration are soon to come. In this case, you’ll definitely need some repairs done or a replacement damper installed.

First things first, we recommend a thorough sweeping. Getting all of that debris cleared out will give us a solid picture of the situation so that we can take the appropriate steps going forward. Whatever you end up needing repairs or a whole new damper installed, we are certain we can get it taken care of.
