Leaving a chimney or fireplace unassessed can easily have life-changing impacts on you and your home. Some chimney deterioration is common because chimneys are constantly absorbing precipitation. A masonry chimney is similar to a sponge as it is dry and porous and absorbs and releases water. As this cycle is repeated the brick and mortar begin to break down and cause a leaky chimney. A leaky chimney results in discoloration of the bricks, rusted chimney and fireplace parts, mold growth, and foul smells.
These water issues aren’t exclusive to masonry units. Prefabricated chimneys also experience leaks that yield these same results. Ultimately, even if your chimney isn’t being used it’s still necessary to have it inspected so you can live safely and avoid costly damage to your home.
There is something you can do to avoid unforeseen circumstances that result from a neglected chimney. Allstar Chimney Sweep Creola is ready to help you get scheduled for your annual inspection today so you can know that your chimney isn’t a threat to you and your home.

Chimney sweeps are vital to the lifespan of your chimney and in promoting safety in your home as a whole. A sweep removes soot and creosote to help you avoid the devastating result of a chimney or house fire. They also offer the great benefit of providing the technician performing the sweep with the opportunity to complete an inspection on your fireplace and chimney to make sure other safety measures are also in place.

The Benefits of A Lock-Top Damper
So what exactly is a damper?
A fireplace damper is normally located at least 8 inches above the firebox opening. The damper acts as a door separating the chimney and the inside of your home, allowing the smoke to exit when open. When the damper is closed, it prevents downdrafts from entering your home.
Are you aware of what kind of damper you have on your chimney? If not, it is worth it to find out because your leaky throat damper could be costing you hundreds of dollars a year in energy loss. Read more below to find out why and what you can do to prevent this.
The Problems with Traditional Throat Dampers
Traditional dampers were designed for times when energy was not nearly as expensive as today. These throat dampers cause several problems because they are made completely out of metal. Throat dampers are sealed by metal to metal closure, which allows hot and cold air to leak through. Due to this inefficient seal, your air conditioner may need to work harder and longer to get to the temperature you have set and that can run up your utility bill. Allowing air into your chimney also interferes with the temperature of your flue liner which makes starting a fire difficult because of the cold air rushing down the liner. The air can then push smoke and ash into your home, and no one wants that! Traditional dampers also add no protection from outside debris entering the throat of your chimney. Any blockages or clogs can cause smoke and dangerous gases to enter your home.
The Advantages of A Lock-Top Damper
Lock-Top dampers use a silicone rubber gasket for a perfect seal that allows no air to seep through. These dampers block rain from entering your chimney as well, so you do not have to worry about any corrosion is your flue liners or chimney throat. Adding this damper greatly extends the life of your chimney and increases its effectiveness. By being placed on the top of your chimney, these dampers also add protection against debris and any pesky critters that try to burrow in your warm and homey chimney. Not only do Lock-Top dampers save you money on your utility bill, but they also prevent future damages that can come from only having a traditional throat damper installed. So, say yes to saving energy and money by calling your top-rated local chimney sweep company to come to inspect your chimney and install one of the best energy-saving fireplace dampers the market as to offer!
