Direct Vent Fireplace Termination Cap


Hello everyone,

Recent had Lennox direct vent fireplace insert (gas) installed along with termination cap. Just noticed some bird chirping near the cap and noticed that that the top part of the cap is "open" In fact, I noticed bunch of nesting materials inside. Please see picture below. Shouldn't the top part be closed to elements?

Many thanks

I have a cage over this vent.

However I have a woodpecker who likes to hammer on my other vent which is a cap. Time to put the spikey things on.

Great idea! I was hoping to put some metal mesh at the top only for esthetics.
