About this deal

OK – we could not help ourselves… here is a fourth reasons… And isn’t there enough plastic in the world already?

It’s like leaving a window open all the time, except that the passage of warm air out is exacerbated by a phenomenon known as the stack effect. In your quest to improve the energy efficiency of your chimney, you might not know which is the best option. The Chimney Balloons are not made of stretchy rubber like actual balloons but a clever tri-laminate plastic, which makes it very strong and puncture resistant but not able to stretch to fit many ranges within each size bracket (however due to the use of rubber bands in the construction the Chimney Balloon will fit a greater range than the inflexible PVC copy on the market, the Chimsoc).

There are 6 standard sizes of Chimney Balloon and these will fit standard chimneys, but there is not much flexibility within these. If you light a fire with the Chimney Sheep in place, the fire will smoulder and not draw properly, and it’s fire retardant so it won’t burst into flames, which is fine with an open fire but to be honest the Chimney Balloon is a safer bet for gas fires.

When our kids are older I’d like a wood burner but until then our chimney is just a source of wasted heat. The review is absolute (loaded) nonsense to be honest – if it’s doing its job, the sheep will block the air to the same extent as the balloon. We don’t always notice the warm air escaping, but as the air disappears up the chimney it needs to be replaced, so it pulls in cold air from around doors and windows, through floorboards, and even right through walls. When you do decide it's time to get your chimney inspected, you can count on Vertical Chimney Care for the best products and service in all of Chicagoland. Chimney balloons – a term sometimes used for chimney draught excluders – are often suggested as a method for draught proofing a chimney.Using a Chimney Umbrella to block off the chimney flue will significantly reduce the air flow through the chimney and can save you over 0. Our chimney sweep recommended an old pillow in a black plastic bag, which has worked v well for us (attach something to dangle down so you don’t forget it’s up there! There are also felt and wool flue blockers that are perhaps easier to install as you merely push them into place (no tiresome inflating). The Chimney Balloon® is an inflatable fireplace blocker that prevents drafts from a chimney caused by a broken, warped, or missing flue damper. Made from felted sheep wool, this product is designed to prevent any damp issues from occurring as it is breathable, blocking the majority of airflow into and out of the chimney, whilst allowing for ventilation.

au which hosts a curated range of draught stoppers, roof insulation, wall insulation, underfloor insulation, secondary glazing and shading options that support Australian homeowners to retrofit their homes to become more energy efficient. In truth, I don't mind which blocker the homeowner chooses to use, so long as the chimney is blocked," says Tim Pullen.Please ensure that if you're using a Chimney Sheep® chimney plug in a gas fireplace, it has been decommissioned as advised by Gas Safe or use one of our magnetic fireplace draught excluder blankets. The fact is, your fireplace is a centerpiece in your home that brings warmth to so many good times with your friends and family. We do offer a bespoke Chimmey Sheep® service, so please get in touch with your chimney dimensions and we'll be able to provide you with a quote.
