Rachel says:

I purchased a chimney balloon from purchase.ie a few weeks ago. It arrived in record time. I had set up a giant jixsaw to do over christmas right in front of the fireplace, and prior to installing the chimney balloon, I was subjected to a strong draught which was coming down the chimney. Since installation, I have experienced no draught! The chimney balloon has made a huge difference to sitting room. It is cheaper to heat and there is no noise from the chimney.

I am delighted to have come across purhase.ie, finding the website and service very efficient and any staff I’ve had the pleasure to deal with most curteous and friendly

    I hate to be devil’s advocate here, but I’d like to know when and where the first chimney fire related to these devices occurs. Naturally somone will forget such a device is in place and light a fire. Don’t these fireplaces have dampers? There’s a quick and easy diagnosis if you forget to open the damper when starting a fire as your entire home will fill with smoke. Oops! How do you explain to your home insurance company the cause of the fire was a plastic balloon that you voluntarily stuffed up the pipe, and will they pay out for the damages?

    • David firstly I would like to say that this product is on the market since the 1990s and we have sold thousands of units ourselves over the past 6 years we are in business so it isn’t something new. It has been tried and tested and is designed for chimneys which are never or rarely used only.
      Secondly it comes with a red label which says “remember to remove the chimney balloon” and it is suggested to customers to place this label in the fireplace to highlight the fact that it is installed. We also suggest that the inflation tube that comes with the chimney balloon is not removed after it is installed and instead hangs into the fireplace and is thus clearly visible.
      Finally if you do light a fire the chimney balloon will simply shrivel up and fall into the fireplace. We have spoken to many people in the past that wished that they had bought a chimney balloon rather that stuffing there unused chimney flue with old pillows and cushions. If you were to light a fire in this situation it would cause far more damage.
