You wouldn’t live in your Chattanooga home without a roof. By the same token, you shouldn’t operate your chimney without a secure flue cap cover, a simple component that affords you a variety of protections.
What Is a Flue Cap Cover?
We likened these components to roofs, because that’s really what they are. Flue caps fit securely over the opening of your chimney flue with mesh-like sides to allow smoke to exit. Our Chattanooga-area customers swear by these devices because of the many benefits they bring.
Protection against rain falling into the flue
Chimney covers do an exceptionally good job of preventing rain from entering your chimney flue. Once inside, moisture can lead to chimney liner damage, deterioration of interior masonry, rusting of the fireplace damper, mold growth and other serious issues.
Flue cap covers keep debris out
Leaves, twigs and falling fruit from nearby trees have a way of ending up in chimney flues throughout Chattanooga. All this debris can narrow the smoke passage and send smoke and dangerous carbon monoxide into your home. It also can serve as fuel for a chimney fire.
No admittance for small animals
Raccoons, squirrels, birds, bats and other little animals love to take shelter in chimneys. Many species build nests in there and birth their young. The nests, along with the occasional dead animal, can cause a drafting blockage just like the debris mentioned above.
Help to contain flying sparks and embers
Flue cap covers are excellent components for blocking flying sparks and embers. This is especially important should you experience a chimney fire. During even a small and relatively “minor” fire, hot materials can exit the top of your chimney if you don’t have a secure cover. The result could be roof damage and a fire in your yard.
