    At Lindemann Chimney Service we like to share with you ways to save money on your home. Chimneys are an important part of a home. They exhaust flue gases from fireplaces, woodstoves, furnaces and water heaters. It’s very important to keep your chimney in prime operating conditions. Having a chimney cap can help protect your chimney from damage and will save you money in the long run. Architectural chimney cap

    • Chimney caps keep out rain, sleet and snow. This moisture causes freeze/thaw damage, odors, and deterioration of the flue. As the moisture drips down the chimney it can end up on appliances, migrate through mortar joints, and affect drywall, wall paper and more. It can also end up on the furnace, in the fireplace firebox and other areas which can require costly repairs.
    • Caps deter animals from nesting in your chimney. Animals not only have young in the flue but also bring in nesting materials like twigs, leaves and debris. These materials are flammable and could cause a damaging fire.
    • Spark arrestors deter flying sparks and embers which can ignite combustibles. In fact, caps with small mesh are required in areas that are prone to wildfires.Energy Top Plus152
    • “Paid” heated and air-conditioned air can exit the fireplace chimney or, depending on the pressure in the home, cold air could be siphoned down the chimney into your home. A combination chimney cap and damper creates a barrier stopping this migration.
    • Smoking related to wind related downdrafts can be eliminated with the correct type of cap. We can analyze the situation to determine the correct solution that is needed.
    • If you are experiencing draft issues with a smoking fireplace, inadequate draft or if your chimney is incorrectly sized, a chimney cap/fan combination can help to cure these draft problems. Clay Pot Toppers
