What are Weather Caps?
A weather cap, also known in the HVAC industry as a rain cap, or china cap, is an important piece of roof equipment. A weather cap can be fabricated to cover any roof opening including chimneys, flue pipes, exhaust pipes.
Weather caps protect your system by preventing rain, snow, or any other weather.
Water can cause many problems in your system. It can lead to the corrosion of any of the elements, especially fan and electrical elements.
Why do I need to Purchase a Custom Fabricated Weather Cap?
High quality, well fabricated weather caps can be custom designed to fit over your exhaust pipe or any other roof opening. The cap has a larger diameter than the pipe or fitting. It includes side vent panels. It is important to purchase weather caps from experienced fabricators so that the cap can protect the system while avoiding restrictions to exhaust airflow. A well fabricated cap is part of an energy efficient HVAC system.
