Is the Chimney Cap too Big or is the Chimney too Small

December 30th, 2011 · No Comments



Charlotte NC home inspector Preston Sandlin was performing a home inspection near Albemarle NC and he noticed a very curious thing; a chimney with a rain cap way too big.  After futher investigation he found that the rain cap obviously cam from another chimney that was way bigger than this one.  The problem with  this rather large rain cap is that it can actually impead the drafting process and migh actually lead to some back drafting which could result in carbon monoxide in the house.  This should be repaired to prevent this.
