Caps Help Prevent Chimney Issues
Caps reduce the likelihood of water getting into the chimney flue and chase area. Without a cap, water will damage not only your chimney system making it unsafe for use, but the water will leak into other areas of your home, leading to structural framing damage, deterioration of other components (insulation, walls, ceilings, etc.), and possibly mold growth.
Certain styles of chimney caps can help to reduce or prevent downdrafts. Especially if your home is on the beach (or anywhere east of Interstate 95 for that matter), blasts of air can force smoke into your home – plus cause inefficient heating.
Caps fitted with wire mesh prevent animals from nesting in the chimney or entering your home. Birds are notorious for building nests in chimneys and obstructing the air flow needed for proper drafting and the safe elimination of toxins.
Wire mesh on a chimney cap also functions as a spark deflector (sometimes called a spark arrestor), helping to prevent flammable debris and embers from flying out of your chimney. This reduces the chances of catching your home (or a neighbor’s home) on fire!
