The Chimney Balloon Draft Eliminator is an inflatable draft stopper that prevents
energy from being taken from your home. The average home owner loses over $400 annually
in energy costs. Whether it be warm air in the winter or cool air in the summer,
the Draft Eliminator is a cheap solution to an expensive problem. Chimney drafts
are generally caused by a broken, warped, or missing damper. A chimney damper is
made of metal and "seals" against a metal frame creating a not so air tight seal
to begin with. Frequent heating and cooling causes the damper to warp or break over
time. This breaks the seal even more allowing the heated air in winter or cooled
air in summer to escape through your flue. In some cases just the opposite happens
and outside air will come down the flue and enter the home.
The Draft Eliminator stops this heat loss by acting as a plug. By inserting the
Draft Eliminator you seal the opening and insulate it with air which is one of the
best types of insulation available. This wonderful product has been saving families
hundreds of dollars for over 15 years. Each Draft Eliminator comes with a 10" valve
handle and an attachable 25" flex tube for inflation.
If this isn't enough length for you, we offer an
optional handle extender kit. This
will add an additional 16" and is highly recommended if you have a damper that is
high up in your chimney. If your looking for a more permanent fixture then come

Product Note: Sizing for a Draft Eliminator is quick and easy. The actual
size of the Draft Eliminator does not reflect on the size of your chimney. Make
sure that you properly follow the sizing instructions before ordering. The most
common reason for return is ordering the wrong size. See Sizing Instructions.
