Vacu-Stack Chimney Cap - $60 (Manitowoc)

Vacu-Stack chimney cap with Masonary Adapter. 9 inch model. Price this on Woodland direct and you will see that it is $244 dollars plus shipping (click all the way to the end to see the final price). This worked well for me for a few years but I recently installed a fireplace insert and I am selling this chimney cap for a fraction of what I paid for it. It can help with chimneys that have poor drafting due to being cold or not tall enough. With this price give it a try, what do you have to lose? It is all stainless steel and built like a tank. The metal alone is probably worth what I am asking for it.

From the Manufacturer's web site:

"The Vacu-Stack Solid Pack Stainless Steel Chimney Cap is the premier chimney cap for solving common, wind-related draft problems. These problems often occur for homes that have hills, mountains, tall trees or buildings in the vicinity.

How it works: When wind flows around the Vacu-Stack's unique design, wind speeds increase which creates a partial vacuum. This vacuum then pulls flue gases up and out of the chimney, thus preventing wind-induced downdraft and the resulting infiltration of smoke, odor, and flue gas into your home. This cap also functions as a conventional chimney cap by protecting the chimney from rain, snow, debris, and animals. It is designed for round chimneys that are not air insulated (also called air-cooled). The Vacu-Stack can also be installed on a square or rectangular chimney using the Masonry Adapter.

The optional stainless steel spark screen is required in some states. 1 inch x 1 inch is standard; smaller 1/2 inch x 1/2 inch mesh is also available.

Please be aware that any Vacu-Stack chimney cap that is larger than 12 inch will be custom made and will ship out in 1-2 weeks.

Customers from all parts of the country have had great success with the Vacu-Stack. We have found that the Vacu-Stack will solve the majority of down draft issues when they are wind-related. Customers who purchase and install the Vacu-Stack for non-wind-related issues may see an improvement, but not a complete resolution to their down draft problems. Please be aware that if you purchase and install the Vacu-Stack, it cannot be returned.

Designed for use with:

Single wall chimneys
Masonry chimneys
Solid pack insulated chimneys
Class-A chimneys
B vent chimneys"
