Chimney Caps & Pans

   As you can see, there are many different types of chimney caps.   Pairing the right set of cap and pan for your home is very, very important to protecting you, your family and your house from damage. Your chimney cap is one of the smallest parts of your fire burning system, yet it deserves no small amount of attention.   The chimney cap is your first element of protection against the environment and is one of the least expensive pieces of equipment you’ll ever have to maintain.  A good cap and pan setup on your chimney should do three things for you:

1.)  Provide spark protection:  hot ash and cinders coming out of your flue can cause devastating roof fires just to start.

2.) Keep the critters out!  Squirrels and birds love to make their nests in high, cozy places.

3.) Keep the water outside, where it belongs. Anyone who has dealt with water damage knows; it’s easier to prevent it than it is to repair it.
