The Benefits of Anti down draught chimney cowls for insulated flues

There are many types of chimney cowls available and they are standard products for owners of wood-burning stoves to allow hot air and fumes to be more efficiently extracted by the flue pipe.

Anti downdraft chimney cowls for twin flues prevent a downdraught, which as well as a nuisance can actually be dangerous to you. In addition to creating an unpleasant smell, the smoke can contain high levels of carbon monoxide, which can cause death.

An anti down draught chimney cowls for insulated flues can be used to keep debris from entering your chimney, thereby reducing the risk of chimney fires and blockages.

About the FlueCube Anti Downdraft Chimney Cowls

A variety of chimney cowls are available on the market such as the spinning cowl, the open fire chimney cowl, the H-shaped chimney cowl, to give just a few examples. The type of cowl chosen depends on the type of flue, the type of fuel being burned and the prevailing wind direction. Cowls are designed to increase the draught up the chimney, reduce smoke spillage and reduce downdraught.

Nevertheless, the FlueCube provides the best protection against nesting birds, vermin, wind, and snow as well as promoting the efficiency of your stove. It is designed to fit snugly over the flue pipe and its adjustable design allows it to be tailored to fit any flue pipe. The FlueCube is also made of durable materials that can withstand the elements and last for years.

Even homeowners who have been using stoves for many years have benefited from purchasing anti down draft chimney cowls for twin wall flues such as FlueCubes. Through creating a positive draw through the flue system, the FlueCube improves stove efficiency, stabilising the burn within the stove, and therefore increasing the efficiency of the stove (burn) by consuming more black carbon (soot) than would have been possible previously, resulting in cleaner flues.

How Does The Fluecube Work?

A common problem associated with wood burning/solid fuel stoves is that of puffs of smoke coming into the room from the stove or fireplace. This is usually caused by a lack of proper ventilation in the room. To avoid this, make sure the room is well-ventilated and the chimney is free from any blockages. In addition, use the right kind of fuel for the stove and ensure it is burning hot enough.

It can be caused by a downdraft, which occurs when air is blown back down the chimney. As a fire burns, warm air rises to the top of the chimney, carrying smoke and gases up the chimney with it. The downdraft effect can occur when warm air rises up the chimney, and this warm air will be overwhelmed by cooler air pushing down the chimney due to low-pressure weather conditions, causing the warm air to be overwhelmed.

The solution to the problem of downdrafts is to install the FlueCube, a solid fuel chimney cowl, which is a very quick and easy fix. The FlueCube prevents downdrafts in two ways - by creating an updraft in the flue and by creating a wind-break effect. This helps to ensure the fire burns efficiently and cleanly, providing a better burning experience.

It is important to use anti-downdraft chimney cowls when your chimney is exposed to windy conditions and the wind creates drafts and eddies, causing smoke to blow down the chimney and into your home.
In addition to wasting heat, unused chimneys can cause damp problems, as well as make fireplaces and stoves smoke. There should be a flue ventilator installed on any chimneys that are not used.
It is possible to prevent rainwater from entering the flue by using rain caps, hooded cowls, and wind-directional cowls. In order to ensure adequate protection against rain and other elements, it's important to select the right cowl for your chimney.
