Is Your Chimney Protected With A Properly Fitted Chimney Cap Or Top-Mounted Damper Cap?

We all know we need to protect our chimney system and work to keep unwanted things like rain, animals, and birds out, but what’s the best way to do that? The answer: a quality chimney cap or top-mounted damper cap!

Chimney caps and top-mounted damper caps are fitted and installed at the top of chimney flue and are designed to help keep your chimney’s interior moisture- and animal-free. Having a professionally installed, high-quality cap or damper cap can save you thousands of dollars in repairs, lower your utility bills, and keep your chimney system in tip-top shape. Read on to learn why chimney caps are so important:

Keep Moisture Out – We get a lot of service calls related to water damage, and unfortunately, by the time we’re called, there’s usually a good deal of damage already done. Although we have the skills and knowledge to make any necessary repairs, homeowners can prevent the need for repairs and save a great deal of money by making sure they have a properly fitted chimney cap!

Prevent Animal & Bird Entry –  No matter how much of an animal lover you are, chances are, you don’t want them nesting in your chimney. Not only can birds and animals be incredibly noisy, but they also tend to bring flammable nesting materials, insects, feces, and other things in with them. This can lead to flue obstructions, damage, and disease. Additionally, animals may become trapped and die in the chimney or escape into your home. Although we do offer humane animal removal services, the best way to prevent potential headaches and damage is to have your chimney capped from the get-go.

Why Opt For A Top-Mounted Damper Cap?

Many homeowners are now choosing to replace their old, rusty throat damper with a new top-mounted damper cap. These quality products serve double duty and work to close off the flue and protect the chimney when the hearth is not in use. Because they are installed at the top of the flue instead of in the throat of the system, they prevent moisture and animals from ever entering the chimney system. Additionally, because they can be closed when the hearth is not in use, top-mounted damper caps can prevent conditioned air from leaving your home and sudden gusts of cold air from entering your home. Protection and energy savings? Now, that’s good news!
