Did you know energy dollars are escaping out your chimney?
Until the 1960’s most fireplaces were built without a throat damper to seal off the chimney.
A Top Sealing Damper is a simple, cost-effective solution to seal off the inside of a chimney and stop those dollars from leaving your home.
Top Sealing Dampers are not just for missing dampers. They are a great replacement for warped, rusted, and leaky throat dampers.
Why Install a Top Mount Damper?
Saves you money
Seals in your heat in the winter and air conditioning in the summer
Seals out animals, birds, and insects
Seals out rain, hail, and even that little bit of snow we might get
Helps prevent sparks from landing on your roof
Eliminates wind downdrafts when closed, minimizes when open
Much more efficient than traditional throat-mount dampers
Handle is easy to reach, see, and easy to use
All of our top sealing dampers are “Made in the USA”
All of our top sealing dampers are made of 304 Stainless Steel with a special stainless steel aircraft cable that runs inside the flue from the cap down to the box. A simple to operate handle is installed right in the firebox at an easy reach for operation.
Arizona Chimney Sweep will help you determine which model is correct for your chimney and assure you have a proper fit. The top sealing damper is available with or without the bird guard/spark screen.
If you do not know the condition of your damper, don’t delay and contact us today to schedule your evaluation.
Humane Bird Removal
Do you have a bird stuck in your chimney?
Pigeons and other birds gravitate to the highest perches possible for many reasons. Unfortunately this would be your chimney on most houses. Without chimney protection birds and other wildlife tend to go into and get stuck inside the chimney.
There are different speculations why they go into the chimney. Either way, once down the chimney they cannot get out. They cannot fly out and most chimneys are too slick and steep for birds and other wildlife to climb out.
What should you do if you have a bird in your chimney?
Call Arizona Chimney Sweep! We offer humane methods of removal of all birds. Our goal is to get them out and let them fly away unharmed.
Birds carry diseases and their fecal waste causes contamination on surfaces they are perching on.
How do I prevent birds from entering the chimney?
The best guarantee to keep birds out of your chimney is with a Chimney cap.
Bird Spikes will keep birds from perching on the top of your chimney and falling in.

Are Birds Taking Over Your Chimney?
Bird Spikes are the most effective, permanent protection against bird landings, nesting and roosting where they are not wanted.
Arizona Chimney Sweep offers Bird Spiking along the chimney top and small nooks and ledges only. This will prevent pesty birds from congregating and nesting or roosting on those specific areas.
Installing Bird Spikes will stop birds from creating unsightly messes and health problems.
Our Bird Spikes are constructed of 316 Stainless Steel spikes, manufactured into a U.V. protected polycarbonate base. The patent pending design provides extra strength and stability, and unlike other spike products, it will not rust or deteriorate under extreme conditions.
Before the birds take over, Contact us today for your bird spike evaluation.
CHIMNEY CROWN REPAIRS
Do You Have Cracks and Erosion?
The chimney crown covers and seals the top of the chimney from the flue liner to the chimney edge.
Most masonry chimneys are built with an inadequate crown constructed from common mortar mix. It is not designed for and will not withstand years of weather abuse without cracking, chipping, or deteriorating. This will allow water to penetrate the crown causing erosion of the bricks and mortar of the chimney’s vertical surfaces.
Arizona Chimney Sweep can help save your crown from deterioration.
We use a flexible elastomeric waterproof sealant to coat the crown and protect it from weather-related conditions for years to come. The product will form a continuous, seamless coating with a textured appearance.
Many times the crown does not need a total coverage and only needs small minor cracks and holes filled. We offer a similar sealant to seal those cracks and holes in the crown to bond a waterproof flexible seal.
