Moisture

Chimney caps and rain pans keep moisture from coming into your home. Rainwater can cause severe damage to chimneys with steel liners, chimney dampers and mortar joints. Water from rain can also produce mildew and mold.

Animals

Animals like birds, raccoons, and squirrels often try to make their homes within chimneys. In many cases, these animals will enter the chimney but won’t be able to exit, eventually dying. This can produce maggots, flies, and unpleasant odors in your home. A professionally installed chimney cap, sized properly, will prevent animals from entering the chimney.

Discourage Backdraft

Where certain wind conditions exist, a chimney cap will discourage downdrafts. Some caps are specifically designed to prevent wind from blowing across the chimney, others actually create and updraft when wind blows through them.

Sparks and Embers

Often, people refer to chimney caps as “spark arrestors”, meaning the chimney cap helps prevent lit embers or sparks that travel up the chimney from landing on roof and possibly catching the home or business on fire.
