Save up to 30% on energy bills.
Huge heat loss occurs when a chimney damper doesn’t seal properly or is missing or broken. You can’t see it, the heat just goes out of the house. If your chimney’s damper isn’t sealing properly its like leaving the front door open in the middle of winter!
That’s not all. You can be spending up to 30% more on air-conditioning in the summer months, too!
You could be losing $350 to $500 or more out of your chimney, every year, without even knowing it.
Chimney Products: Caps, Dampers & More
We offer a wide range of caps to suit any chimney: round, square, rectangle or multi-flued. Custom built models are also available for challenging installations. We offer chimney caps in copper or stainless steel. Other materials are available, such as galvanized metal and aluminum, but these materials are not as durable. A quality chimney cap is a one-time investment that will protect your chimney for a lifetime.
Fireplaces in older homes were built without dampers. Dampers help prevent heat loss by sealing the chimney when the fireplace is not in use. An open fireplace chimney can allow hundreds of dollars in energy loss through the chimney each year. A top mount damper is an effective solution for upgrading an older fireplace chimney. It’s even a great idea for newer fireplace chimneys, as well!
Furnace Flue/Hot water tank liners/Fireplace liners
As chimneys age, they begin to deteriorate and threaten the safety of the home. Relining an existing chimney can be tricky, but a flexible steel lining system makes difficult applications easier.
At Chimney Cricket, we have been installing metal chimneys for a very long time and would be glad to speak with you about which chimney liner might be best for your home.
Vent Free Gas Logs
Want wood fire realism, but not the hassle of toting, lighting and fumbling with wood? We offer several sizes of different types of gas logs with remote control & 3 burners give 3-dimensional flame! These are super clean burning, dramatically realistic.
TIP: Direct Vent gas appliances are the most energy efficient and provide the greatest heating capability.
Vented Gas Logs
Vented Gas logs must be burned in a fireplace capable of burning wood and the damper must be open while the gas logs are in use. The reason for this is that they do not burn the gas cleanly and create exhaust that is very similar to burning a real wood fire. This exhaust needs to be able to go up the chimney. The real beauty of vented gas logs is that they produce substantially more yellow flame than vent less logs which makes them look far more realistic. The downside is that mos of the heat goes right up the chimney.
