Chimney caps protection from downdrafts, rain, and animal invasion
There are many benefits to installing a chimney cap. Chimney caps keep water from coming down your chimney. If water enters, it can damage your chimney and its components. Water would also cause mold and corrosion. An obvious benefit is that a chimney cap won’t allow animals enter the chimney flue. If an animal enters your chimney, the damage and problems are fairly obvious. They prevent wind drafts which would cause your home to smoke up, if you’re having a fire in the fireplace and a chimney cap is also said to prevent lit embers from landing on your roof. There are many styles of chimney caps and all types of materials.
