A damper is a vital component of a fireplace system. Typically located near the base of a chimney, it essentially functions as a small door that opens and closes the chimney. When the damper is opened, it allows smoke, excess heat, and other byproducts of combustion to exhaust out of the chimney. When it’s closed, the damper prevents cold air from traveling down the chimney and into your house.
Fireplace dampers are constructed of heat-resistant materials, such as cast iron or ceramic. While these materials are durable, constant exposure to harsh conditions, including high temperatures, smoke, and creosote, can damage a damper. Fireplace damper repair services, as the term indicates, refer to the repair and maintenance of this vital part of your chimney. These services vary but can include cleaning, adjusting, sealing, or even the complete replacement of a damper. 1800 Chimney specializes in all types of damper repair services and will ensure that your fireplace is working correctly.
A fireplace damper serves two main functions: to exhaust the byproducts of combustion (smoke, excess heat, soot, etc.) out of your home, and to regulate the flow of oxygen (which fires need to burn) into your fireplace. In other words, the damper is an essential component of your fireplace system and it has a direct impact on the comfort and safety of your home. Therefore, if it’s damaged, having it repaired by a licensed professional at the first sign of trouble is a must. But how can you tell when you need fireplace damper repair services?
