Many homeowners have come to accept the fact that the damper is a pain to open and close, cold air will leak into the home, and that heat and conditioned air will be lost up the chimney even when the damper is closed. That’s because throat dampers, although largely effective, provide a metal-on-metal seal, which means air is still going to make its way in and out. Additionally, metal is prone to rust and creosote buildup can make opening the throat damper harder and harder with time.
