Warming Homes, Warming the Homeless

Caps & Dampers, has expanded their mission to help provide safe and warm housing to their community with the launch of a new initiative to support some of our most vulnerable citizens – the homeless.  For every chimney that Caps & Dampers cleans, they will donate a package of socks to the homeless.

“We built this company to help keep families safe and warm, and that mission extends to our entire community.” says Lena DiGenti, co-founder of Caps & Dampers. “As we continue to grow, we have more opportunities to help. We would like to see a day when everyone has a safe and warm home, one chimney at a time. Until that day, we will continue to provide support for local homeless shelters, clothing drives, the Keep Hartford Warm initiative, and DCF foster care clothing drives and comfort cases.

Jen Hoyle, Caps & Dampers co-founder states, “We have always believed in helping people to become their best selves, and that can only happen if someone has the basic essentials to live. This initiative is not only warming the homeless, but it’s also warming our whole community.”

Client Feedback

“Caps and Dampers is the ONLY chimney company I would ever trust.” – Mark, East Longmeadow, MA

“Shopped around, best price, quality workmanship, professional in all regards, will recommend to friends.” – Bob Hurvitz, West Hartford.

“I could not be happier with the exemplary service I received from Caps and Dampers! With one quick and easy call, I was able to schedule a routine, annual cleaning of my fireplace and furnace chimneys. I found out they also perform a variety of other routine maintenance that I needed done, including air duct and dryer vent cleaning, and even snow removal. I was thrilled to get everything set up and taken care of in one shot. The inspection and cleaning were very thorough, without the pushy sales guy or usual upsell scare tactics. I only needed one small repair which was done quickly. I also decided to add a cap to keep out rain and animals. I was able to schedule the other cleaning services for the same day. It was all very convenient and reasonably priced. I would definitely recommend this locally owned, family business.” – Holly Connor, West Hartford
