A chimney cap is an important component of a residential fireplace. It's designed to cover the top of the chimney so that smoke can escape. The following reports examine the global chimney caps market and where it's headed.
It's estimated that about 60% of homes and residential buildings have a chimney. Found above the fireplace, the chimney is an essentially a tunnel that vents smoke. Without a chimney, the smoke produced by the fireplace wouldn't have anywhere to go. Rather, it would remain trapped inside the home, causing extensive smoke damage while polluting the air in the process.
Thankfully, all indoor fireplaces are required to have a chimney to prevent this from happening.
Some homeowners are reluctant to build and install a fireplace, believing that debris will enter their home through the chimney. There's actually a component that's designed to prevent debris from entering through the chimney, however. Known as a chimney cap, it features a mesh-like design that allows smoke to escape while preventing solid debris from entering. If a chimney doesn't have a cap, leaves, branches and even animals can enter the home through the chimney. Problem such as this are avoided, however, by installing a cap.
