Chimney Cowls Fitted
In most cases chimney cowls are fitted if a fireplace is continually causing the living room, kitchen or home in general to become filled with smoke whenever the fire is lit. There are many causes of this, the main one being some form of downdraught through the chimney which is often caused by strong winds, and can prevent the smoke from travelling up through the flue and out of the house effectively. Having chimney cowls fitted can help to reduce this issue. Normally made of galvanised iron, chimney cowls are fairly sturdy structures, built to withstand the elements but can of course need replacing over time.
A chimney cowl is often described as a ‘hood shaped’ an in most cases people have chimney cowls fitted to the chimney pot itself, helping to protect against wind blowing back down into the house and encourage a better chimney draft. Other reasons to have chimney cowls fitted can include the prevention of rainwater entering the chimney, and in some cases to even stop birds falling into the chimney flue which is not only unpleasant for the animal but can also be costly to remove.
