A "Chimney Without a Cap" is Like a "House Without a Roof" Imagine how much water would come into your home during a Rainstorm if you had a hole in your roof twelve inches square. Chimney Flues may be even larger than that, so where does all that water go? It runs down the chimney and seeps into the bricks and mortar, settling behind the firebricks, Causing Leaks, Rust, Mold & Other Damage. Let Our Professionals Install a Chimney Cap to Protect Your Home.
Who's Living in Your Chimney Squirrels? Raccoons? Birds?
Raccoons can easily climb in and out of chimneys and like to live and raise their young on the smoke shelf of a fireplace where it is dark and warm. It is dangerous to have animals living inside the chimney, they can catch on fire, enter your home, or both. Raccoons need to be removed from chimneys as quickly as possible, the longer they stay the more comfortable they become and their will to stay grows. Raccoons and chimney swifts will both return to the same chimney they have inhabitant. At the time of removal, our chimney sweeps can install a chimney cap or similar animal guard to prevent the problem from reoccuring.
Who's Living in Your Chimney??
Other animals have been found inside of chimneys, most usually other types of birds and squirrels perish inside of the chimney before they can be removed. The only animals that can remove themselves from chimneys at leisure are raccoons and chimney swifts.
To remove the raccoons we drop moth balls onto the smoke shelf. These dry out the air in the chimney and make it undesirable for the raccoon. We also drop a rope down the chimney to aid the raccoons escape. Then we make noise inside the fireplace because raccoons do not like loud noises. These three stimuli usually force the raccoon out.
After leaving the chimney the raccoon scurries to the nearest tree to hide. The raccoon will return after being removed; chimney caps are strongly recommended. After the raccoon realizes that it cannot get back into the chimney it will be looking for a new chimney to live in. Donít let it be yours!

The various claims made by chimney sweeps, cap manufacturers and fireplace retailers can often confuse the issue. An in-depth look at the different types of chimney caps will answer this burning question once and for all.
Most metal chimneys are sold and installed with a termination cap that is manufactured by the maker of the chimney parts. This is the best and safest cap to use because it is designed specifically for the exact brand. There are times when you may need to install a generic retrofit onto a metal chimney, such as when: You have draft or wind problems. Your cap has worn out and you cannot locate the manufacturer of your chimney.
Chimney Dampers 8 % of Your Furnace Heat if Going Up Your Chimney!!!! Our well constructed, superbly engineered chimney damper eliminates 90% of the winter heat and summer cooling loss that leaks past your current damper. It also eliminates downdrafts and keeps moisture and animals out of your chimney and home. Moisture in your chimney causes unwelcome odors and leads to deterioration of bricks and mortar. The Lyemance Top-Sealing Damper works year round to protect your chimney. That's why we install thousands each year.
Silicone rubber gasket provides solid, tight-sealing protection Nothing seals like a rubber gasket. That's why we use rubber enhanced silicone for lifetime durability. It makes the Lyemance Top-Sealing Damper seal super tight, just like an old fashioned Mason jar. Traditional throat dampers only give metal to metal contact - notoriously leaky and expensive. Who can afford heated or cooled air going out their chimney?
Your current throat damper was designed for the days when energy was cheap. Back then if you lost some energy here and there, it was no big deal. Today it is a big deal. Energy prices have skyrocketed and are predicted to go even higher. Lyemance solves your problem because it seals like no throat damper can.

The lid on the damper is spring loaded in the normally open position. It is shut by means of a stainless-steel cable that extends through the cable guide then down the flue to the firebox, where it is secured to a bracket fastened into a forward part of the side fireplace wall.
The Original can be installed on chimney tops in minutes, used with new or existing fireplaces. No special tools are required. Dampers are available in sizes to fit most standard flue liners, including round.
The low profile Original blends into the roof line. Each damper is completely assembled with a 32 foot stainless-steel cable and a tube of silicone sealant to bond the damper to the flue tile. Flue liner dimensions may vary 1 inch.
The LyemanceTM Original Damper is durably constructed of cast aluminum, so it won't rust or warp (unlike cast iron throat dampers), and fully guaranteed for material and workmanship.
The Original is much less expensive than repairing existing throat dampers.
