What Are Hurricane Chimney Caps?
Hurricane chimney caps are chimney caps that are designed for hurricane- and storm-prone areas. While standard chimney caps feature open metal mesh exteriors, hurricane chimney caps have a layer of solid walls separated with space for airflow to increase insulation. The lack of mesh makes them more resistant to very high winds and rain and less likely to get natural debris caught in them, while still providing optimal airflow.
Is a Hurricane Chimney Cap Right for Me?
If you live in an area prone to hurricanes, storms, or high winds and rain, a hurricane chimney cap is the best choice for your home to prevent downdrafts and keep rain and debris out. Your hurricane chimney cap will last longer than a standard chimney cap would in similar conditions.
