Why is it important to Install a Chimney Cap?
There are many reasons why installing a chimney cap on your home is important.
1: It will prevent birds or squirrels from nesting or entering your home through your chimney.
2: Leaves and twigs can easily fall into your chimney through the chimney top. Often this will cause a blockage and could result in a chimney fire when you light a fire in your fireplace.
3: A chimney cap helps to keep dangerous burning embers down in the flue chamber and do not let them fly onto your roof which could easily lead to a house fire.
Smartcap Chimney Cap Colours
Up until the 2015 winter season the Smartcap was only available in a terracotta colour. It is now available in 4 different colours.
