    Customer Questions & Answers
    By Judith from Lamy, NM on November 28, 2014
    Can you show how the Wind Guard would be installed over the Dura-Vent Rain Cap on the Snorkel we installed?
    We have super-high winds here in Lamy, NM. Our Jotul propane stove was installed on the West wall and the pilot light cannot stay lit in high winds.
    By eFireplaceStore on November 30, 2014

    Answer:
    Checking the dimensions provided by the manufacturer, there is enough width and depth for the wind guard to fit over your snorkel termination without an issue. The guard would simply span the exhaust/intake port on the snorkel and screw to the exterior wall on either side of the snorkel riser. This should help to cut down on the amount of wind that can force its way down the snorkel. Please keep in mind that extremely high wind gusts can still cause pilot outages. If you experience sustained winds of 50 MPH or more, you may need to have a custom, solid wind guard made to cover the termination.

    By Kelly from Denver on January 30, 2013
    I am hoping to prevent winds from snuffing the pilot light. I use a DuraVent 36" snorkel. Is this the right solution? It seems pretty expensive.
    By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on January 30, 2013

    Answer:
    This is indeed the correct item to help against high winds blowing out the pilot or causing back drafting issues. The guard can be used on the standard and periscope terminations.

    By Ken from Spokane, WA on March 14, 2016
    Can this be used as a safety guard to prevent children from coming into contact with exhaust from a stove? I have no wind issues at all.
    By eFireplaceStore on March 15, 2016

    Answer:
    This could indeed serve as a passive safety guard to prevent children from accidentally bumping into the termination. However, it does not cover the upper or lower quadrant of the termination, so it could only serve as a sort of barrier from accidental contact.

    By Joe from CT on February 26, 2015
    This wind guard was placed over my DuraVent sconce termination cap without any effect on it. I have a Vermont Castings radiance gas LP heater on the south wall of our home and when the wind is from the south, the flames go crazy. Should i consider a different termination cap? Could I turn the wind guard to cover the top and bottom of my sconce termination cap to reduce the incoming wind? The way that it is installed now is like your picture above and my sconce termination cap openings are on the top and bottom, not the sides.
    By eFireplaceStore on February 26, 2015

    Answer:
    Both the sconce and standard Duravent terminations offer similar anti-draft performance, so changing the termination would not have much effect in this case. However, rotating the wind guard for your installation would indeed be the best idea. The standard termination vents primarily from the sides, so the standard orientation is not as effective for the sconce cap.
