    Question:

    What is a good type or types of chimney cap to use on a brick chimney using a wood-burning stove insert? One that will keep out most of the rain and also eliminate- or at least not be prone to- DOWNDRAFTS on windy days.



    Answer:

    Most all standard chimney caps can help with certain downdrafts. Vacu-Staks - made by a company called ICP, also claims to be specially designed to help with wind-related problems.
    Read our article on chimney caps at the link below.
    Another new option is are flue extensions which can work in numerous ways to improve your draft and avoid downdrafts. A link to Extend-A-Flue is also below.
