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.
