About copper chimney caps
Most people think that copper chimney caps are only good for decorative reasons. In fact, the copper chimney caps have some advantages, other than aesthetic.
A chimney cap helps keep the rain out of the chimney.
Another upside of the chimney cap is the fact that it keeps small animals from entering your chimney and house. Chimney tops have always been ideal places for birds to nest, but with a chimney cap, you won’t have this problem.
Throughout the fuel burning process in the fireplace, sparks and embers shoot randomly. Having a chimney cap you will avoid these potential fire producers from shooting out the chimney and igniting your home.
