The ENERGY TOP Chimney Damper is a low-profile top mounted damper that also serves as a chimney cap. It has the tightest seal of any damper in the industry. Heat loss up the fireplace chimney accounts for an average 8% of your home heating costs! Energy Top Chimney Dampers help prevent this heat loss so you can stay warmer AND save money.
The ENERGY TOP Chimney Damper is attached to the top of the chimney’s flue tile liner. In the closed position, it is virtually invisible from the ground. It provides a tight fit that seals in your heat and seals out weather, insects, birds and animals.
ENERGY TOP Chimney Dampers and Seal Tight Dampers are very easy for home owners to operate. A chain drops down the fireplace; a bracket is attached to the fireplace wall, keeping the handle easily accessible. A slight pull on the chain releases the spring-loaded top into the open position. When open, this chimney damper design is least obstructive to exiting smoke.
The ENERGY TOP Chimney Damper is constructed of stainless steel and aluminum, meaning it will not rust or corrode. Mounting adhesive and hardware are included, making it easy to install.
Chimney caps come in a variety of shapes, sizes and materials. They are typically made of galvanized metal, stainless steel and copper. Our copper chimney caps and stainless steel chimney caps provide a lifetime warranty. Lindemann Chimney Company carries sizes to fit single or multi flues. We also have available custom chimney cap sizes for challenging installations. Chimney caps not only offer protection from weather and wildlife but add a nice architectural element to your home as well.
Without a chimney cap, animals and birds can make a home in your chimney, and major problems can develop. Too often, animals die in the chimney, resulting in awful odors, maggot infestation, and worse. If animals become stuck in your chimney, it can be costly to have a professional remove them. Additionally, nesting materials can cause blockages and are a source of combustible materials that can cause a chimney fire.
Chimney pots provide excellent rain protection, deter pests, and assist in chimney draft control. Most styles are rust proof and require very little maintenance. Whether you aspire to recreate the feel of the Victorian era or want to finish your chimney with the clean lines of a classic chimney pot, Lindemann Chimney Company specializes in custom chimney caps and can assist you in picking out the right pot for your chimney. We offer both clay and copper pot toppers.
Lindemann Chimney Company has been installing stainless steel chimney caps, dampers, covers and pots on some of the North Shores finest homes for over 40 years.
