Chimneys are one of the best items to have during winter. They can either be gas chimneys or a wood chimneys. Chimneys provide heat and give that cozy feeling of warmth.
But having a chimney also comes with responsibility.
You need to make sure your chimney is clean in order to avoid smoke and fire hazards.
Safety is probably the most important reason to buy a chimney cap. There are many stainless steel chimney caps or copper chimney caps.
Your taste and budget will have a lot do with the final decision you make.
When the chimney is not in use, birds may come and make their nest on top of your chimney shaft. You will also experience problems with water from rains getting into the chimney. Wind can also be a problem that can blow smoke back into the house.
Another reason why a chimney cap is important is that it prevents animals like squirrels from paying you a visit through the chimney. Having a chimney cap prevents embers from a wood fire getting through the chimney shaft and starting a fire.
Wind directional chimney caps are an interesting addition to the line of chimney caps. You might want to consider the wind directional chimney cap if you are getting a lot of wind down the chimney shaft. You get to protect your chimney and at the same time prevent wind blowing smoke into your house through the chimney shaft.
Buying a chimney cap will prevent debris from entering your chimney shaft. However, a chimney cap will not prevent soot from accumulating in your chimney shaft. You will still have to either pay someone to regularly clean your chimney in order to remove the soot and other debris that might have accumulated through use. Cleaning your chimney is not optional. If you want to prevent fire and possibly death, you need to take the time to clean out your chimney with or without the chimney cap.Roofing Enhancements Inc.
