The Chimney Balloon

Saves on heating bills and stops chimney draughts.

Journeyman Chimney Services can supply and fit Chimney Balloons.

The chimney balloon is a simple and effective way of blocking off chimneys and flues when not in use. It stops draughts and saves you money on wasted heat going up the chimney.

A room with a chimney balloon needs only about half the heat compared with a room with an open chimney, so it makes sense to fit one in every chimney and flue which is not in everyday use. Using a chimney balloon will also reduce the level of outside noise entering the room significantly.

The chimney balloon is made in a special laminate of three plastics to make it airtight, tear resistant and long lasting. It also has a special shape that allows a little ventilation in two corners to keep the chimney vented and dry. Using a chimney balloon is completely safe; if accidentally heated, it will shrivel and deflate.

The chimney balloon comes in six different sizes to suit most chimneys and flues and we can order special extra large sizes for inglenooks.
