How Much Does a Fireplace Damper Cost?

The fireplace damper is a cast-iron or steel door that will open and close at the base of the fireplace.  To put it in simple terms, picture it as the door to the chimney.  Keeping a fireplace damper open allows the smoke to exit the home through the chimney; closing it would cause the smoke to fill the house instead.  Keeping the damper open when there is no fire, however, can cause warm air to be wasted by escaping through the chimney.  A fireplace’s damper should be closed when there is no fire but open when there is a fire.  Over time, the damper may not open properly or can become stuck if it gets rusty when rain seeps through.  If a homeowner fails to take care of the damper, the draft and heat from a fire will be lost.
