Some chimneys just struggle to work as well as we would like.
Like us humans chimneys can be a little on the short side, or too tall, or too fat and old. Chimneys that live in a particularly windy or turbulent location can often prove to be under achievers.
This is where the Windkat cowl comes "riding to the rescue". That chap in the picture above actually does arrive, cowl on head, astride a large black stallion, delivering your spanking new Windkat cowl directly to your door (pleaser note that should he prove unavailable we may use Parcelforce or some other courier).
The Windkat cowl works by directing gusts upwards via a series of ducts and nozzles, the resulting flow of air assisting the draw of the chimney rather than fighting against it.
This design, unlike spinning cowls, has no moving parts and therefore there is nothing to "stop working" or "seize up".
It is very easy to fit your new Windkat cowl to your clip-together twin wall chimney. Just add a lit of the supplied heat-proof Silicon and slide it in.
Fit to chimney liner with the supplied Jubilee clip. If fitting to stack screw down to brickwork. If fitting to top of chimney pot use provided heat-proof Silicon.
Screw down to top of stack - simples.
We offer 14 days from delivery to report any courier damage to your parts. If your item is damaged by the courier we will replace or refund as desired.
Stovefitter's Warehouse is owned and managed by Julian Patrick, blogger and author of The Stove Fitter's Manual. Julian was previously a full-time installer of wood-burning stoves (including solid fuel heating systems). He laid down the tools in 2013 to write his stove manual and open a small shop in North Wales (the Wood Stove Hut, soon to grow into The Stovefitter's Warehouse).
