When we think about chimneys, we often think about the chimney stack and the fireplace. However, there are several important accessories that keep the chimney appliance working properly. A very important accessory is a chase cover.
Chase covers protect your chimney when it is not in use. This is usually the summer. The cover keeps leaves, sticks, animals and even water from collecting inside the chimney. If water gets into your chimney, it can be very bad news. The water eats away at the mortar, and eventually causes the chimney structure to fail. Needless to say, rebuilding a chimney structure is a very expensive proposition.
This is why we constantly preach maintenance. Having your chimney inspected and swept, as well as putting a chase cover on your chimney, will save a lot of money in the long run. No matter what economic climate we happen to be in, that is a very good thing!
