Down Draft-

A down draft occurs for several reasons. The problem could be that the chimney is not high enough to create an efficient draft. Another reason could be environmental issues. Wind blowing in the right direction could be enough to create the puff of smoke into the house. Another reason could be trees surrounding the home that all too tall. The wind blows across the tops of the trees and blows down when it reaches the empty spot where your home sits. There are several reasons that could cause the down draft. Sometimes the treatment is as simple as a special cover placed on the top of the chimney. Call us for a check up to find the exact cause or check with our specialists page on our website about drafting issues.
