Exploring the Dance of Weather and Chimneys

Ever noticed your chimney struggling on stormy days? Let's dive in! High winds can create downdrafts, pushing air down the chimney instead of letting it rise naturally. This disrupts the crucial draft needed for efficient ventilation.

But that's not all! Mist and rain saturate the air, making it heavier. This added weight hinders the upward movement of smoke and gases, making it challenging for your chimney to draw properly.

Why does this matter? Poor chimney performance can lead to issues like backdrafts or even the potential buildup of harmful gases. So, when the weather takes a turn, consider these factors for a safer and cozier home. Stay informed, stay warm!
