I get lousy draw in my fireplace when the cap is on. What is wrong?

Our Answer:

It is quite likely that the draft of your fireplace is weak to begin with and the cap is simply enough to stifle what little draft there is. There are a couple of things that could cause this. 1. The chimney cap screen height is too short, placing the top of the cap too close to your chimney termination and impeding draft. 2. The chimney is too short and the house itself is fighting the chimney for draft. This often is characterized by smoke rolling back into the room.
