The Importance of Chimney Caps
Homes and businesses throughout Westchester require services to their chimney. One of the more crucial elements to a chimney are the chimney caps. Here are a few reasons why they are a vital part of any chimney.
Safety From Animals
Chimney caps provide helpful safety measures for homeowners with a chimney. They are often an overlooked aspect, but still important all the same. Perhaps the biggest benefit of a working chimney cap is the protection from animals. A cap is designed to keep animals and debris out of your chimney flue and, subsequently, your home. Small birds are known to create nests in the flue if there is a way to get there through the cap.
Raccoons and squirrels are also known to infiltrate an unprotected flue. In addition to any infiltration are the droppings these animals leave. These droppings can carry diseases and be harmful to the health of you and your family.
And if any of these animals create a nest, that nest can block your flue from completely sending out all of the carbon monoxide and smoke into the air. Instead of leaving it to seep into your home. The small investment of a chimney cap can avoid any of these hassles with animals and all that comes with it.
Protection From the Elements
Properly installed chimney caps are the best way to stop moisture from snow and rain from entering your chimney. They are also designed to prevent leaves and debris from entering and possibly blocking your chimney. On top of that, they can also prevent animals from infiltrating. The maintenance of chimney caps is even important during the off-season of chimney use. The rainy months in the summer can do unknowing damage. So, before you begin to use your chimney again in the winter, have it inspected to ensure it is safe to use. Chimney caps should be in proper working condition all year long, especially in an area like Westchester where winter is prevalent.

What Our Clients Are Saying!
You have very professional and polite service men! They gave me some helpful tips about how to use my fireplace and really educated me about the chimney cleaning process.
Thanks for completing the job. By the way, I've already been referring you to friends. Your service techs were the most professional vendors I've had at my house in so long. It was a pleasure doing business with you. The stainless steel liner you installed was so inexpensive compared to the other two estimates I had. Thank you for your honesty.
I would highly recommend Always Affordable Chimney. They were very honest and cooperative. I am going through a divorce and had to wait months for my ex’s contribution and Tommy was more than patient and understanding. The work was done efficiently, neatly and to the highest level of quality. I would recommend them to anyone without hesitation.
These guys are great. The owner knows what it takes to get a job done. I had numerous issues and he found solutions, stuck with them and made it happen all while checking in on any of my concerns. I rarely come across anyone I would recommend to friends – I would sing this company's praises. From Tom and his intelligent crew to his wonderful office coordinator Justine (very professional and friendly), they came prepared, were considerate of my property, and did a fantastic job. They seem to love their work, go figure. Top of the line!
Thank you Tom for your exceptional job & advice at my Bay Shore home. I would have wasted a lot of money, time, & material if I listened to previous chimney companies. You're an angel!
