Safe to say I’ve got good draft on this chimney. Was nice and quiet in the house and my boost air intake was whistling! Threw a piece of fridge magnet over the boost hole to shut her up! Lol

Is a flexible fridge magnet the way to go or what do others use?

Any advantages to covering the boost vs part of the primary air intake? Or should I stay away from all that and just throw in a key damper?

I roll up a tight cylinder of alfoil and jam it in the boost hole. make sure it's long enough that you can pull it out again when necessary.
