At Lindemann Chimney Supply we understand how important it is to sell a product to your customer that you can stand behind that will also save your customer money. Chimney top dampers such as the Sealtight, the Energy Top, Energy Top Plus and the Top Damper can save your customer hundreds of dollars in heating bills. They are also a profitable add-on sale for your chimney sweep or hearth company.
Traditional masonry fireplace dampers are made of cast-iron. At best, your customer gets a metal-to-metal seal. Sometimes the castings may be off a little and the damper plate doesn’t seal flush against the damper opening. Add to this the likelihood of the damper being warped or rusted and you have a great candidate for a tight sealing damper.
Our dampers seal tighter than other comparable dampers on the market. The Sealtight Damper has more gasket than competitive products. This two-part gasket starts with an injected gasket under the damper frame. Then, the secondary gasket is attached under the bottom side of the front portion of the lid. In addition, our dampers have up to a 50% increase in surface opening area compared to similar models. Lifetime warranted.
Our Energy Top Dampers feature a soft, pliable rubber gasket seal, much like the seal that is used on some refrigerators. It is attached to the frame and actually compresses and conforms to the lid, forming strong flexible barrier to the outside elements. No other damper features this type of seal. Other similar dampers have a flat gasket or no gasket seal. In addition, the Energy Top Damper features precision engineering meaning it opens to the same pre-set height every time. You won’t find a lopsided Energy Top. Lifetime warranted
The Energy Top + Damper features the same great construction as the Energy Top but with a stainless steel chimney cover. This premium quality cap offers spark protection and deters animals from entering the chimney. With this cap attached to the damper, all you need to do is to seal it to the flue with the high-temperature adhesive, included. Then install the bracket and chain handle hardware below. Lifetime warranted.
The Top Damper is similar to other dampers on the market with the exception that it doesn’t require a fire safety device. This means you don’t have to spend those extra minutes assembling this device and fumbling with the installation. The Top Damper opens higher than similar dampers allowing for optimum draft. Lifetime warranted.

You have the equipment to install it. It’s dangerous for the average homeowner to be on the chimney. Most don’t have the equipment and don’t know how to install it. Without a doubt, it is a product that should only be installed by a qualified sweep.
