The damper covers the flue to block air from flowing down the chimney when it is not in use.
Over time, dampers can become worn or damaged. In some cases, the damper breaks completely free. Other times, the damper becomes stuck and won’t open. Whatever the issue, your chimney cannot operate properly without a fully functioning damper.
