Chimney Cap Installation

Twin Cities Chimney Cap Installation

A chimney cap sits and mounts to the top chimney flue tile(s) and has several important functions. The first is to keep out any falling debris, leaves, branches, and animals from entering the chimney potentially causing the flue to become blocked. A blocked chimney will keep by-products of combustion from properly exiting up the flue and, should they enter the home, can be harmful.

Importance Of Having Chimney Rain Caps: Recap

1. Reduces moisture intrusion

A chimney cap will keep rain water from coming down your homes chimney. Rainwater can damage chimney's with clay liners, chimney dampers and chimney mortar joints. Beyond the damage from the water itself, moisture from rain water can produce mold and mildew.

2. Keep out animals

Animals like bird's, raccoons and squirrels often try to make their homes within chimney's. In many cases, these animal's will enter the chimney but won't be able to exit, eventually dying. This can produce flies and unpleasant odors in your home. A professional installed chimney cap, sized properly, will prevent animal's from entering the chimney.

3. Reduce downdrafting

If the wind is blowing in a certain direction, it can introduce a downdraft. If you don't have a chimney cap and you're using a wood burning fireplace at the time, a wind-induced downdraft has the potential of blowing smoke back into your home. The flat-shaped top of a chimney cap is designed to help prevent wind-induced downdrafts.

4. Stop sparks and embers

Some people refer to chimney caps as a spark arrestor, which basically means that the chimney cap helps prevent lit embers or sparks that travel up the chimney from landing on the roof, and possibly catching it on fire.
