What Are Flue Stretchers?

Flue stretchers (or flue extenders) look like chimney caps but are much taller, and are designed to attach directly to your flue tile to extend it by one or two feet. Flue stretchers address two problems:

  • Negative house pressure: If you have both an upstairs and a downstairs fireplace, negative house pressure can draw the smoke from one flue down the flue next to it. Using a flue stretcher for the upstairs fireplace puts distance between its smoke and the pull of the downstairs flue.
  • Drafts: Placing the flue opening above other roofs and nearby structures increases upward drafts and reduces downdrafts.

Is a Flue Stretcher Right for Me?

A flue stretcher may be right for your home if you have both an upstairs and a downstairs fireplace and you notice smoke entering your downstairs area when you have a fire in the upstairs fireplace. Other indications that you might need a flue stretcher include having draft issues in a single-fireplace chimney. By raising the height, you naturally increase the draw of the chimney. 

Additional Considerations

Flue stretchers install like a chimney cap and have a chimney cap built in, removing the need to purchase one separately.

Our flue stretchers are available in stainless steel and copper. Both of these options are incredibly durable and corrosion-resistant.
