I installed this damper on my fireplace flue and I get a strong soot smell in my house when the damper is closed. Any idea what is causing the smell?

Our Answer:

These dampers work so well at sealing your flue that the downside to them is that they allow any odors from your chimney to creep back into your room. A thorough cleaning of your flue should alleviate the soot smell that you are noticing.
