No cap or cover on the chimney?

Let Our Experienced Techs Help you

A chimney that is open to the sky lets rain and snowfall inside and cause that wet campfire smell to permeate the room. It also gives animals and birds opportunities to build nests. Things pile up, and your chimney could be blocked, leaking carbon monoxide into the home.

Benefits of chimney caps

  1. The weather in Charlotte tends to be rainy in the spring and summer months but having a chimney cap plays a critical role in keeping your chimney and flue in proper working condition all year round.
  2. A chimney cap prevents water from entering and causing a leak. Without a chimney cap, moisture can enter the flue anytime it rains. This moisture can damage your walls or ceiling. Keeping water out of the flue improves your chimney's functionality.
  3. In windy areas, a chimney cap can be extremely beneficial in making your home more energy efficient. Cold blasts of air are prevented from entering into homes equipped with a chimney cap.
  4. Installation of a chimney cap is minor and relatively inexpensive.
  5. When caps are installed with mesh netting, it prevents animals from entering and building nests. Nesting materials cause chimneys to become clogged which leads to other issues and additional costs. Also, when animals have the opportunity to enter the chimney, there is the possibility of them getting stuck and dying. This can cause a horrible odor in your home.
  6. Chimney caps prevent against potential chimney fires because they keep flammable material from entering the flue.
