Row Of Chimney Pots without Anti-downdraught Chimney Cowls

So let’s first be clear when down draught or blow back (smoke being blown back into the room) occurs when it is windy or only when the wind blows from a certain direction then you have a good chance of eliminating the problem by fitting one of our chimney cowls designed to prevent, stop or reduce downdraught or as commonly known – anti-downdraught chimney cowls.

To make your life easier we have created a helpful guide to choosing a suitable anti-downdraught chimney cowl on our website. Check out our Chimney Cowl Finder. Just answer the three simple questions and you will be given a list of suitable cowls.  Couldn’t be any simpler.

What are our best selling anti-downdraught chimney cowls?

The Colt Top Cowl. If you burn gas or oil then Colt Top Cowl for all fuels is for you but if you only burn wood or coal in an open fire or if it is a multi-fuel or woodburning stove then the slightly cheaper Colt Top cowl for solid Fuels .  This cowl is particularly popular with the Trade and is easy to fit.  Colt Tops are manufactured by a British company supplying chimney cowls for over 80 years and they have sold over 4 million.

When would I opt for the Colt Top Square cowl?

Again when only burning wood and/or coal and if the downdraught problem occurs when the wind comes from a particular direction.

If you don’t have a chimney pot or the size of pot is extra large there are still cowls for you to consider.  Please call us on 0131 336 3589 and our friendly team will be happy to advise you further.
