Chimney Caps Are Particularly Important In Florida

We have a lot of beautiful birds here in Florida, and some of them see chimneys as a welcome home — in particular, chimney swifts, which earned their name from their attraction to that particular nesting space.

We love Florida’s wildlife, but your chimney isn’t the ideal home for birds or other creatures. Animals can carry in flammable debris for nesting materials, and they can create unsanitary conditions, unpleasant noises, smells and insect infestations. Chimneys aren’t the safest place for the animals, either — young and sick birds and mammals can easily fall down the flue and, if they’re unable to crawl up or down, they quickly die.

The best solution for you and for those animals: Have a properly sized and properly installed chimney cap installed on your flue, which will provide protection against falling debris and falling rain, and encourage animals to seek a home elsewhere.

What If I’m OK With Nesting Birds?

Florida is full of nature lovers, and some of us are fine with sharing space with chimney swifts as they nest and migrate. We wouldn’t recommend foregoing a chimney cap because they’re designed to keep out animals, debris and moisture. But, if you’ve decided to let nesting birds nest, you have a few important things to think about.

If you have a prefabricated fireplace or a stainless steel flue liner, the birds will struggle to get a foothold on the smooth metal, and can fall into the appliance, which can cause injury or death. For your chimney, it’s recommended that you have a chimney cap installed to keep nesting chimney swifts out, even if you’d have liked to accommodate them. It’s better for your system, and ultimately kinder to the birds.

If you do end up with swifts nesting in your clay tile-lined chimney, you should still make sure to have the flue swept every fall after the birds have moved on. Chimney Swifts are federally protected, so it’s unlawful for you or for Young’s Chimney Service Technicians to remove them — instead, they must leave on their own. Chimney sweeping will remove the old nests, and with them, insects and bird parasites.

Whatever chimney or dryer vent needs you have, if you live in Altoona, look no further than Young’s Chimney Service! Call today to make an appointment with our skilled, CSIA-certified technicians!
