Living in the Northeast, especially Boston, or the larger Massachusetts and New England area can take a serious toll on your home. One of the biggest dangers of living in an area that deals with both frigid winters and scorching summers is the effect it has on your shingles, windows and chimneys. A clean, maintained chimney is pivotal to keeping you and your family safe, especially through the winter months. Having an operational chimney is a great way to save money and allows a relaxing and tranquil visual to your home as well as a serene environment for you and your family to enjoy.
Guaranteed Chimney of New England services home owners across the Boston area and we are a certified chimney cleaning company. If you are in need of service to your chimney damper, please contact us today. We can help you with whatever questions you may have.
What is the importance of a structurally sound Chimney Damper?
A leaking or missing fireplace damper can cost a homeowner close to 300 dollars in heat loss alone. Guaranteed Chimney of New England has you covered, regardless of the task at hand. We have conventional replacement chimney and fireplace dampers and components. Many people love the cozy feel of a great fireplace, but these additions do come with some maintenance. Cheap and ineffective chimney and fireplace dampers can cost you big in heating loss and you may not even notice before you are well over a thousand dollars in losses. Create a tight seal at the top of your chimney and keep energy in the home. The top sealing chimney damper is designed to stop cold air from coming down the flue, and expensive conditioned air from going up. Save your money starting today by improving your fireplace to maximum efficiency.
Unlike the fireplace and chimney, which are only being used when you have a fire going, the damper plays an important role when the fireplace is both active and inactive. When the fireplace is in use, an open damper prevents smoke from filling up your home by giving it a way out through the flue. When there is no fire, keeping the damper shut tight prevents cold outside air from entering the house-a cost effective way when conserving energy.
Keep Your Home Safe
Finally, if you are using your damper properly, you can control the intensity of your fire just as well as you would from adding more gas, firewood or pellets. If you change the degree in which your damper is opened or closed, you control the amount of oxygen that can enter the flue of your chimney and reach the fire. In addition to a fuel like gas or wood, oxygen is a crucial element to maintaining your fire. Without a proper flow of oxygen, your fire will not breath and burn out quickly.
