Keep Your Chimney Protected With A High-Quality Chimney Cap Or Chase Cover

Those of us here at Chim-Cheroo work hard to keep the chimney systems of our neighbors throughout Mansfield, Ashland, Lorain, Loudonville, Lexington, Lakeside, Port Clinton, and beyond in tip-top shape, season after season. And one of the ways we do this is by making sure that every chimney is properly protected against damage with a quality chimney cap or chase cover.

What’s The Difference Between A Chimney Cap & A Chase Cover?

Homeowners frequently ask us, “What’s the difference between a cap and a chase cover?” It’s simple. A chimney cap is designed to fit atop a masonry chimney, while a chase cover is designed to fit atop a prefabricated chimney. Both essentially perform the same job: they keep moisture, foliage, animals, and insects out of your flue. Why is that so important? Because all of these can do a number on your chimney and fireplace!

  • Whether you have a masonry chimney or a prefabricated chimney, moisture from rain, snow, and sleet can ruin many of the chimney’s components. Masonry starts to crack and crumble; metal flue liners, dampers, and fireboxes begin to rust and corrode. If moisture makes its way into your chimney system, it will significantly shorten your chimney’s service life.
  • Many animals and birds, including raccoons and federally-protected chimney swifts, will nest in a chimney if possible, bringing flammable nesting materials like twigs, moss, and foliage, as well as insects, fur, feathers, and feces with them. These materials can cause flue blockages, start chimney fires, and force smoke and carbon monoxide to back up into your home. Additionally, young animals can get stuck in the chimney or fall down into the fireplace, oftentimes dying as a result.
  • In addition to the foliage that animals and birds may bring down into your chimney, if your chimney is capless or coverless, leaves and twigs can blow in of their own accord, blocking the flue and leading to inefficiency and chimney fire.
