Be it through a specific type of home comfort system or by combining HVAC with the beauty and benefits of a chimney, it is important that your home be inviting.

Passaic homes with chimneys must ensure that their home’s chimneys are up to code and work properly in order to prevent a home fire.
A chimney cap is a metal covering placed at the top of your chimney. It will contain a wire mesh designed to keep birds, leaves and other items from entering your chimney. Passaic homeowners will find that having a chimney is helpful accessory – no matter what the time of year.
Benefits of Chimney Caps

We know that your chimney is not just part of the architectural aesthetic, but it is beneficial in keeping your home warm on those blustery fall and winter days. Our many years of experience make us skilled in determining the effectiveness of your chimney and to determine what type of chimney cap will best suit your needs.
When it comes to protecting your chimney’s health, the best thing you can do is ensure that there is a chimney cap atop each one of your home’s chimneys. The cap can be made from aluminum, copper or stainless steel and will provide many benefits for your chimney system.
- Preventing Animal Entry – One of the prime reasons to have a chimney cap is to prevent animals from going inside of your chimney. Quite often, animals will crawl into an uncapped chimney, then get stuck and die, resulting in a necessary and unpleasant retrieval. Birds will also build their nest atop, or inside of, your chimney. Should chimney swifts build a nest inside the chimney, you must leave them there until they move on, as these birds are protected by the federal government.
- Moisture Prevention – You do not want rain to enter your chimney as it will not only enter your fireplace, but can also get inside the house walls or attic and do significant damage.
- Wind – A chimney cap will keep the wind out, thus preventing cold air to enter your home or allowing smoke to fill your home.
- Spark Detractors – On dry days, the wire mesh of a chimney cap will keep the sparks from escaping to the roof and providing an opportunity for a fire on the roof.
