**Please note, the first picture shows the Chimney Control fitted using extra long legs – these can be found in accessories**
The Chimney Control is an extremely useful energy & money saving device which allows you to close the chimney at the top pot.
Spring mounted chimney cowl with a chain attached. This chain drops down the inside of the chimney to the fireplace. The chain allows you to open & close the chimney. Length of the chain is 33 feet (10 metres); therefore this chimney cowl is suitable for a 3 storey building.
The overall adjustment between open & closed is approx. 3 ½ inches (9 cm). Through the use of the chain, this allows a number of control positions.

The ability to fix the Chimney Control at a number of positions gives you a huge degree of control over the following;
* Heat Loss up the chimney:
A huge amount of heat can escape up from an unlit fireplace. A Chimney Control will eliminate this money waster.
* Draught & Fuel Consumption: With a smaller opening there will be less draught & less fuel burned. The chimney control is a draught reducer.
* Flow Reversal: When a chimney is used infrequently it will cool down to the outside temperature. When this happens an airflow reversal can occur. Cold air can sink down the chimney & escape from the fireplace, cooling the room down. Equally, an extractor fan or a second fireplace can draw cold air down the unused chimney. The Chimney Control will stop this.
* Up-down Problem: When two chimneys are back-to-back or very close and one is being used, smoke and fumes can be sucked down the unused chimney and back into the building. A Chimney Control placed on the unused chimney will prevent this re-entry occurring.
* Noise Reduction: Some chimneys are susceptible to external noise levels from wind or even moving vehicles that can sometimes be heard indoors. A fully closed Chimney Control will reduce noise.
* Birds Nesting & Rain Penetration: When the fireplace is not used the chimney control can be closed to stop the birds & rain entering the chimney

Important: This chimney cowl will not prevent a downdraught when open.
Important: This chimney cowl cannot be used with a stove, boiler or any closed appliance.
