**3 Important Reasons Why You Need A Chimney Cap**
1) Rain protection - water causes the greatest damage to your chimney of any of the elements. It soaks into the porous bricks, eats away at the mortar, hastens the destruction of the chimney liner, and destroys the chimney crown. A chimney cap does a great job of protecting your chimney from water damage.
2) Animal protection - one of the greatest sources of danger to homeowners is the threat of disease from animals like raccoons, squirrels, birds, and rodents that make their home in their chimneys. A well-made chimney cap will keep those animals out of your home forever. Sturdy mesh and a strong lid keep even the most determined critters at bay.
2) Spark protection - the mesh screen on chimney caps protects your home from sparks emitted from your chimney. That means less danger of a fire caused by stray sparks from your fireplace or wood stove.
Need A Chase Cover?
Factory built or pre-fab fireplaces do not have the same type of caps or dampers as a full masonry fireplace. Factory built fireplaces are metal fireplaces. These fireplaces are most common in new homes these days because of the lower cost associated with the installation and materials of the factory built system. While some are usually built inside of masonry structures they are uniquely different. Below is a picture of a chase cover replacement. A chase cover is essentially the roof of a factory built chimney. Chase covers are metal and should be replaced about every 12 to 15 years.
Here at Covenant Chimney Service we offer a lifetime warranty on all of our stainless steel damper systems. Our dampers are top mounted and dub as a chimney cap and damper all in one. All top mounted dampers have an airtight seal when damper is closed, saving you big money on your energy bills. Conventional dampers have a metal-to-metal seal, which tend to leak air from your home. A lot of fireplaces don’t even have dampers. Dampers range in many different sizes based on your flue size. Call us today for a quote on an energy saving lifetime warranty damper system.
When a "Lock Top Damper" is closed, the rubber seal at the top helps to keep the air from pulling in through the chimney, helping to control the negative airflow, which can cause particulates to enter the home. and help control bad smells like "Camp Fire" type smells as well as mildew smells. Breathe easier tomorrow with a Lifetime "Lock Top Damper System" from Covenant Chimney Service (Nashville Chimney) today.
