Are you sick of cold drafts swooping down your chimney and ruining the cozy aesthetic of your living room? We don’t blame you! Draft issues can be very frustrating to deal with. Winston’s Chimney Service is here to help you put a stop to them.

Malfunctioning Chimney Cap Cold Drafts From Your Chimney Image - Northern Virginia - Winston's Chimney

If your chimney cap is broken or cracked, or if you don’t have a chimney cap at all, downdrafts will likely be a big problem in your home. Most know of a chimney cap’s role in keeping out animals and excess moisture, but that’s not all they do! They also stop excess debris from entering the flue, prevent sparks from escaping onto your roof, and – you guessed it – stop downdrafts from swooping down your chimney.

A proper working chimney cap is an inexpensive way to ensure your chimney and fireplace work as efficiently and as safely as possible with every passing year, and our CSIA certified staff can install or repair your chimney cap, no problem. It’s an investment you’ll be glad you made!

A Poorly Constructed Liner

Another issue could lie with the liner. The chimney liner plays a major role in protecting your home and masonry, but it needs to be properly constructed in order to do so. Unfortunately, this all too often is not the case and a faulty liner will result in drafting issues. If you feel that your liner needs some attention, give us a call. We’ll be happy to look things over and advise you on the best possible steps moving forward. You can count on us to get the job done right!

Need Reconstruction Work?

If you can’t seem to find the root of your drafting issues, you may need some reconstruction work done. Chimneys can be too big, too small, or too short. In these cases, you’ll need a professional team in to do some renovations. Some systems just weren’t built properly to begin with and a lot of older fireplaces need a little work to get them functioning as efficiently as possible.
