Tip Of The Day: Add a Fireplace Draftstopper To Plug The Chimney

Adding a Fireplace Draftstopper to plug your chimney can help you stay warm. When winter winds blow when a fireplace is not being used, expensive heated room air often escapes through a leaky chimney damper. That's now easily corrected by adding an inexpensive chimney plug -- like a beach ball or mini air mattress of sorts. You put it in the fireplace just below the damper and inflate it by mouth until it expands and seals off the chimney flue. It blocks heat in and freezing cold out. It also keeps out soot, birds, noise and debris until you open the valve and deflate it. And that's the Tip for today.

We could all agree that home heating costs are going straight up.  Which is why keeping that expensive warm air inside is very important.  When chimney's are not in use that expensive heat is escaping straight up them.
  One would think closing the damper would be enough to keep cold air out and warm air in, but not necessarily so.
A solution to this problem is the fireplace plug.  It is like a plastic inflatable plug for your chimney.
To install it, you partially inflate it with the breathing tube...
...then slip it up into the top of the firebox...
...and lock it in place.
Finally, finish inflating the plug and tuck the tube out of sight.

Some heating experts claim that an unlit fireplace with a damper open can increase heating costs by as much as 30 percent. Now that could add up to $500 over the course of a season.

Well, here's a solution that's relatively inexpensive, easy to install and pretty much invisible.
