TOP DAMPER, ENERGY TOP and ENERGY TOP Plus Dampers and Seal Tight Dampers are made for use only with open wood burning masonry fireplace chimneys and are NOT suitable for use in these installations:

  • Don’t use on chimneys serving vented gas logs. Vented gas logs require the fireplace damper to be fixed to an open position, this is to assure that soot, fumes & carbon monoxide do not enter your home
  • Use only on vent free gas logs, however we don’t recommend it because of moisture generated from the gas logs could damage the chimney structure.
  • Don’t use on chimneys serving other fuels, wood stoves or other appliances such as inserts, furnaces, etc.
