Avoid the draft from your chimney

You expect brisk, shivery breezes on an autumn day -- but not in your home. So Battic Door Energy Conservation Products has some clever devices to plug leaks from overlooked areas such as clothes dryer vents and bathroom fans.

We're especially taken with the Fireplace Draftstopper, an inflatable, urethane flue plug that can be installed in a couple of minutes and removed whenever you want a fire.

It keeps warm air where it belongs -- in your house -- and banishes cold downdrafts around leaky flues.
Given today's energy costs, it shouldn't take long to recoup the price.

The Draftstopper comes in two sizes to fit nearly any fireplace. 508-320-9082;

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.
