For decades, we have been working to make our homes more energy efficient to conserve fuel and reduce energy costs. Loss of heat through an open chimney has become a concern in this energy conscious environment. Glass doors attempt to solve this problem but eliminate the hearth’s natural warmth and ambience.
Flue Sentinel delivers a “Healthy Hearth” - an open hearth that acts like a sealed hearth. The Flue Sentinel seals the fireplace from the outdoors while maintaining the aesthetic appeal of a natural, open gas or wood fireplace, minimizing heat loss and maximizing fuel efficiency.
Flue Sentinel dampers and fans are the best of both worlds. They automatically open and vent when the fireplace is in use and automatically close to the outside when not in use. This provides all the benefits of a sealed hearth with the ambience of an open hearth - a warm, inviting focal point in the home.
The desire: A large, open gas fireplace.
The problem: Heat loss. Cold, drafty rooms. Wasted energy.
The old solution: A manual damper, permanent glass panes or glass doors.
The new solution: The Flue Sentinel is mounted on top of the chimney, opens and closes automatically, and saves energy.
