    Default Chimney Balloons

    Not really home automation exactly, but related :-)

    Has anyone tried one of these balloon things to try to keep all that valuable heat going up a dormant chimeny?

    Our victorian terrace still has 2 uncapped-off chimneys which we dont use. We found these things online (ie here amongst other places.

    I wondered if they were any good - if anyone has experience using them?

    I've been using one in my new house to seal of the chimney. Does exactly what you would expect and keeps the fireplace clean from any debris falling down as well as reducing the draught. Not it is not meant to seal completely and allows some ventilation which should prevent dampness in the chimney.
