About chimney cowls
Chimney cowls are used to prevent smoke from coming back down the chimney. There are many different sizes and varieties of chimney cowls to choose from. Purchase the one suitable for you.
Chimney cowls can be made of many materials but most of them aren’t durable and will require replacing the cowl after a period of time. Stainless steel cowls are the most durable because they are rust resistant and can withstand rough weather. These cowls are also very common and should be easy to find.
Because small animals like birds tend to enter the chimney or even nest there, you should think of purchasing a cowl that is built in such a way to prevent birds from passing through.
A durable cowl is determined by the material it is made of. If you do not want to spend too much money replacing the chimney cowl, choosing a durable one is crucial.
The size of the chimney cowl must resemble the size of the chimney itself. Measure the chimney top. This way you will have the right measurements for the cowl.
Purchasing an efficient chimney cowl is very important. The best you can find is the H type. It’s named that way because the chimney pipes have a H shape. This cowl reduces the possibility of downdrafts, is energy efficient and can be found in sleek and stylish designs, but also in bulkier ones.
