Chimney Caps, Damper Caps, Chase Pans & Covers: What’s the Difference?
So, what’s the difference between these various components? We’re glad you asked!
- Chimney Cap — A chimney cap is a metal chimney component that covers the flue itself. Although these are great for keeping animals and moisture out of your chimney flue, they don’t offer protection to the entire chimney top or crown.
- Custom Cover — A custom cover will, like a chimney cap, provide protection to your flue opening, but it also covers the entire crown or chimney top. With a custom cover, it doesn’t matter what style or size you need, you’ll get guaranteed protection for your entire chimney top.
- Chase Pan – A chase pan is a metal covering that sits atop a factory-built chimney, sort of like a chimney crown. It’s important to note that your flue will still extend past the chase pan, so you’ll still need to get protection for your flue in the form of a cap or damper cap.
