Is Your Chimney Missing A Quality Chimney Cap?

A chimney cap, also known as a rain cover or spark arrestor, is a cover that’s installed on the topmost part of your chimney. If you take a look around and notice all the chimneys that aren’t properly fitted with a cap, you might be tempted to think they can’t possibly be all that important, but the truth is, chimney caps are a must. They play an essential role in protecting the chimney and ensuring safety in the home.

A chimney cap offers several benefits:

  • Enhancing the functionality and durability of the chimney by keeping water from getting into the chimney flue (Note: A dampened flue is one of the main causes of chimney performance problems and deterioration)
  • Keeping birds and small animals out of the chimney (and out of your home!)
  • Also serving as spark arrestors, catching burning sparks and embers that are carried up through the chimney, and preventing them from starting a fire on the roof or in nearby trees and shrubs.

In other words, the chimney cap plays a vital role in the maintenance and protection of your flue and chimney, and can help keep everything in working condition throughout the year. Is your chimney properly fitted with a quality chimney cap? If not, give Alpine Chimney Sweeps a call and we’ll take care of you!
