Chimney flue coveris a good investment, sealing an unused fireplace or any unused flue at the top of the chimney can be a good economic move

  • Open flues allow a lot of water to enter flue area to cause damage and rust to the metal damper and any other metal parts as well as soak up masonry and cause damp creosote odours
  • open unused flues provide handy shelter for raccoons and other wildlife
  • a open unused flue with a faulty or open damper allows expensive heated air to escape at a rate of up to 300 cfm

Prior to installing any fireplace chimney blockers make sure to clean the flue or you will have unwanted creosote smells in your home.

And once you have blocked off your chimney it’s a good idea to put a warning plate inside the firebox to stop someone from unknowingly lighting a fire in a fireplace chimney that has been decommissioned.
