Are Chimney Caps Necessary?
Absolutely! While these may be a minor and inexpesive part of your chimney, they protect your chimney and can prevent numerous mishaps from taking placing thereby saving you thousands of dollars in unnecessary chimney repair and damage expenses.
What are the Benefits of Chimney Caps?
Chimney caps offer a variety of benefits which include:
- Keeping away animals.
Birds, squirrels, and other rodents are likely to deem your chimney a suitable habitat especially once the cold weather hits. If they start to build nests, your chimney will quickly be clogged causing various draft issues. A plugged chimney means smoke backing up into your home. Or if an animal crawls in your chimney and passes away, you could be left with some nasty odors and bug infestations. Chimney caps prevent animals from getting into your chimney and wreaking havoc.
- Prevents weather & reduces moisture.
Chimney caps prevent snow and rain from getting into the chimney. Too much water can cause significant damage to your chimney. Brick soaks up moisture pretty easily which can easily lead to a lot of deterioration and eventually collapse the entire chimney. A chimney without a cap is also exposed to the freeze-thaw process which means your chimney could tilt or settle out of place resulting in increased pressure and decreasing the brick’s lifespan.
- Reduces draft.
Without proper draft a cozy night indoors can quickly go wrong. Strong winds and bad weather can cause smoke to enter your home when a chimney cap is not installed. Chimney caps prevent the wind from outside from entering your chimney and proper ventiliation will remain intact.
How do I Get a New Chimney Cap?
Lowes and Home Depot have bargain deals on chimney caps that look appealing due to the discounted price; however, these caps are typically made of aluminum and do not always provide adequate coverage to keep your home safe and your chimney clean. Chimney caps come in a variety of sizes and shapes and are useful in different cases which is why it is best to get a recommendation and installation from your local chimney sweep who can recommend the best chimney cap for your chimney.
What are the Best Types of Chimney Caps?
Copper and stainless steel are the most commonly used and recommended chimney caps as they are the most durable and best for the job. Also, if you have a multi-flue chimney, with these types of caps you can put one large cap in place as opposed to installing several individual ones.
