Vacu Stack
Chimney Caps

The Vacu-Stack Chimney Cap solves the two wind related chimney problems -- wind induced downdraft and dynamic wind loading. The streamline flow of the wind around the Vacu-Stack prevents wind from blowing into the chimney -- even when the wind is deflected downward. The Vacu-Stack creates a venturi that causes flue gases to flow up and out of the chimney.

There are no moving parts to bind or malfunction.
Vacu-Stacks are tested by an independent testing laboratory. In the absence of wind, Vacu-Stacks provide a more than adequate passage for exhausting flue gases. The open spaces in a properly sized vacu-stack are several times larger than the flue opening. The unique design of the Vacu-Stack gives excellent protection from downdrafts caused by wind, where other devices often fail.

   High quality austenitic stainless steel, T-304, guarantees superior durability for long service life. All fasteners and hardware are also made of stainless steel for complete corrosion protection. Ribbed construction provides extra strength and reinforcement. Exposed edges are hemmed for ease of installation. The Vacu-Stack chimney cap is made in the USA.

Easy, Quick, Secure Installation:
Fits Round, Square, or Rectangular Chimneys Problem Free Installation The Vacu-Stack Chimney Cap is easy to install. It fits directly into round flues. Square and rectangular masonry chimneys require a stainless steel adapter. The adapters are adjustable and fasten securely to the inside of the flue. Chimneys should be cleaned and inspected before installation and must conform with applicable fire, safety and building codes. Detailed instructions are furnished. The Vacu-Stack is easily removed for annual chimney cleaning and inspection.

Round Metal Chimney Installation:

Vacu-Stack caps easily fit inside round factory built chimneys. Optional stainless steel Spark Arrestors are required in some states. Check your building code..

Apply a thin film of silicone caulking (not furnished, but available from your local home center) to seal the joint between the Vacu-stack and the top of the chimney.

AIR COOLED CHIMNEYS REQUIRE TDW MODELS.... 

DO NOT bend the three spacers located on the underside of the TDW models. The spacers maintain ventilation space between the bottom of the Vacu-Stack and the top of the chimney. This is essential for uninterrupted air flow through the cooling channels in air cooled chimneys.

It Works!!!!

Dear Reiner,

We received our Vacu-Stack from you last week, and I wanted to let you know how pleased we are with it. We have lived in our home for almost 20 years, and gave up using our fireplace years ago. The reason was that the smoke would back up into the house any time there was the slightest wind outside.
 
Evidently this was caused by the peak of the house being higher than the chimney, and so the wind would come down off the peak and into the flue (see photo).

 

     

  It was very simple to install the vacu-stack on my chimney; it took me less than 5 minutes, as it fit perfectly inside the flue as you said.

We immediately started a blazing fire to test it out, and there was absolutely no smoke or even the slightest smell of smoke in the house. Also, in the past, whenever we had a fire left overnight, in the morning the whole house would smell like smoke. With the vacu-stack, we do not have that problem anymore.

The real test, though, was the other day, when we had our first Nor'Easter, with wind gusts of up to 50 MPH for several days. I was skeptical that the vacu-stack could prevent smoke backing up with winds that high, but our house stayed warm and toasty and smoke-free!

     
I am very grateful for the time you spent helping me figure out our problem, and coming up with the solution. We love using our fireplace, and plan on keeping it going 24 hours a day to save on our heating bill this year.
So thanks again for everything; there's nothing as warming and beautiful as a roaring 'smoke-free' fire!!

Sincerely,
Perry & Frauke R
Montgomery, NY
