How does a chimney cap work?
A chimney cap is held in place by galvanised steel spring wires. It works by slotting over the opening of any chimney pot up to 11” external diameter. The smart ventilated design will still permit constant ventilation of the chimney in order to avoid damp issues. Please enquire with your local chimney sweep or other contractor with the necessary roofing qualifications about installing a chimney cap.
Do I need a Chimney Sheep® too?
As this chimney cap will still allow some air to seep through for ventilation purposes, it’s worth having a Chimney Sheep® at the bottom of your chimney. This way, you can guarantee that cold draughts are truly abolished and your home is kept snug and warm. And remember, not only are you stopping cold draughts from entering your home, the chimney cap and chimney draught excluder combination will also reduce noise and debris.
