A Quality Chimney Cap Keeps Your Chimney Flue Dry & Clean of Debris
Having a working chimney and fireplace can be a major blessing, especially during major Indianapolis winter storms when power is lost. But are you doing everything you can to keep your chimney system clean and in good condition so you can enjoy it year after year?
As part of proper chimney maintenance, protective components should be installed on your chimney system, and one of the most important components is the chimney cap. Chimney caps, which are designed to fit atop your chimney flue, help with the following:
Protect against water damage – By sealing off the flue, chimney caps work to keep water out of your chimney where it could do serious damage to both metal and masonry components.
Prevent animals and debris from entering your flue – Without a chimney cap, animals, branches, and debris have access to your chimney flue. The dangers can range from dangerous and highly flammable chimney obstructions to trapped animals, feces, bad odors, and more.
Prevent stray sparks from exiting the flue and igniting nearby tree branches or bushes – During a fire, stray sparks can be ushered up the chimney with the smoke. If allowed out of the flue, these sparks can land on nearby trees, bushes, or brush and easily spark a fire on your property.
