Chimney Balloon - How it Works

himney Balloon / Schornstein Balloon / Schoorsteen ballon / Ballon CheminéesThe Basic Principle

The science is really quite simple - warm air rises and cool air descends! In practical terms this means on a cold day, your unlit open fire will allow heat from your room escape up the chimney!

To make matters worse, as the warm air leaves, cold draughts will come in. You've probably noticed cold air rushing in to your room from under the door, from floorboards or from windows. Why does this happen? Well if warm air is flowing up your chimney, cold air is rushing into our room to replace this escaping warm air.

An unused open fire is like having a hole in your roof! With the vast majority of houses having one or more open fireplaces, that's a huge amount of lost energy.

What Are The Options?

How can you stop this heat loss? Well, you could seal your fireplace with bricks or board, however that probably won't look great in your room. If you ever change your mind and decide you'd like to light a fire it could also turn out to be very expensive!

You could jam the chimney with rags or newspapers! Hmm...apart from creating a mess when you're blocking the chimney, it'll make an even bigger mess when you are removing the blockage.

There are two other problems with simply blocking your chimney with rags or paper - it creates a fire risk and doesn't allow any ventilation through which can cause dampness. himney Balloon / Schornstein Balloon / Schoorsteen ballon / Ballon Cheminées
