Traditional dampers are located in the "throat" of a fireplace. They are made of cast-iron and are housed in a low-tech frame work.


Cast-iron plate and frame do not seal tightly, allowing energy dollars to escape.


These cast-iron dampers do not seal well—they have a leaky, rough, metal-to-metal seal.
Recent lab studies have shown that even a new throat damper can leak up to $200 of heating and cooling a year. Imagine how much energy an old, rusted out damper leaks!

Lock-Top mounted on the top of the chimney.
Lock-Top's rubber gasket seals tightly like a storm door for your fireplace, and keeps heating and cooling dollars where they should be...in your home.
Lock-Top mounts on top of your chimney to keep out animals and rain.
Lock-Top easily operates from inside your firebox and seals tight everytime you close it—eliminating any draft.

Do you still need more convincing that the Lock-Top Energy-Saving Damper is right for you? Here is a five minute video that demonstrates the differences we have stated above.

Red, silicone rubber gasket under Lock-Top lid seals tightly to eliminate draft.
 

LOCK TOP DAMPERS

How to stop heat (and cool air in the summer) from leaking out of your customer’s fireplace chimneys?

Our Top Sealing Dampers.

 

Why use a damper?
  They are a great help to your keeping heating costs down and ensuring a safe, energy tight home!, be sure to check out all our damper options for your fireplaces !

There are plenty of affordable and efficient   new dampers available to homeowners today. We have found that many homes  have an old, warped and leaky throat damper. These are energy wasters, and they cost homeowners hundreds of dollars a year!

 These high-tech dampers could be offered to every chimney with a throat damper – even a new throat damper! Why? Because the new dampers, with superior designs and rubber seals, conserve energy as much as 90% better than a traditional throat damper.

Educating and offering you  these modern dampers is a win-win situation. We keep a happy satisfied customer , and you get the energy saving benefits that will save you money for years to come.

   
Damper Benefits
  • Quality stainless steel or cast aluminum
• Serves as a cap when it is closed - some have built-in caps!
• Saves heat from escaping out the roof's “big hole”
• Allows better flow for flue gases exiting the chimney
• Lifetime warranties
Caution :

Never use dampers on chimneys with gas logs. If the homeowner forgets to open the damper, the gas fumes are difficult to detect, and this could lead to Carbon Monoxide poisoning. Also, if a gas leak occurs, the gas could build up in the chimney, posing a dangerous risk.

Does Your Home Have An Uncapped Chimney?

If your answer is yes, you need a Gelco Chimney Top. Why? That's simple!
Your chimney is a hole in your roof!

An uncapped chimney:

  • Says "come on in, make yourself at home!" to nesting birds and animals.

  • Allows rain and snow to enter your chimney, which leads to moisture damage and expensive repairs.

  • Creates a fire hazard as burning embers and sparks escape through the open chimney and land on your roof or in your yard.
