Why install chimney caps?
Every chimney needs a cap. Without a cap, you have a huge open hole in your home that can lead to many problems. What problems can you prevent with a chimney cap? For starters, they provide a barrier between nature and your home, protecting against the following dangers:
1. Clogging: Without a chimney cap animals, leaves and twigs can fall into your home. During the months in which your chimney is not in use, some animals may even try to make a home in your chimney. Nests and twigs can cause a blockage in your chimney and all the problems that come with a blockage, including chimney fires. This can be easily prevented by installing a chimney cap.
2. Fire: A chimney with no cap can also lead to a fire. Without a cap, burning embers from the fireplace have nothing to stop them once they reach the top of the chimney flue and can easily fly out. This, not only, can cause damage to your roof, but can also cause a house fire. The simple solution: install a chimney cap.
3. Water: When you have no chimney cap, rain, snow and ice fall directly into your chimney. As the moisture freezes and thaws throughout the winter it can cause damage to the interior of your chimney wall, that can eventually weaken the entire structure of your chimney. A chimney cap can easily deflect the elements and prevent this sort of damage.
Simply put, a chimney cap, although seemingly unimportant, can prevent a wide array of problems in the future. Contact us to discuss what type of chimney cap is best for you. We can customize chimney caps to fit your taste and needs.
