About this deal

It’s also important that you take into account where the heater on the electric fireplace is located; many freestanding models have a heater on the bottom, which is where it intakes air from the room. Chimney Draught Stoppers have a number of excellent qualities including not being impacted by water. You will need an electric wall socket nearby to where you wish to install the fireplace, or, you have a mains power cable that you can wire the fireplace insert directly into. All our service professionals operate on a simple but powerful principle - if a job’s not done right, we’ll make it right.

Hard to know how much difference it makes overall to a draughty Victorian terrace, but every little draught exclusion helps I'm sure! Even with the damper closed, up to 20% of the heat or A/C in your home may be leaking out through your chimney. The wool is felted to create a perfect plug for the chimney and a handle added for easy insertion and removal. Was going to use double socket maybe or single(will power tv also and Firestick) I know all the issues about burying connections behind plasterboard.Another requirement of traditional fireplaces is to have a vent that supplies the fireplace with oxygen. Whether you use a chimney balloon, a fabric draft blocker, glass doors or even create your own decorative cover, a fireplace draft stopper keeps your home warm while lowering energy costs. Lighting a fire in a blocked chimney is a fire hazard and could lead to dangerous smoke inhalation as well. Cut two-inch-thick foam to the shape of the opening; subtract about an 1/8- to 1/4-inch around all sides to leave room for wrapping with material. We just bought the house and the only thing the old owners told me is they had the chimney cleaned last year.

A chimney can act as a wind tunnel even when the damper is closed, sucking cold air down into your home through the fireplace opening. One of the biggest benefits of electric fireplaces is that they use a much more simplified process to heat your home compared to traditional fireplaces. Failing to remove the draft stopper prevents smoke and flames from exiting the home and could cause serious danger.Installing a magnetic fireplace vent cover over those vents is a smart solution that stops cold air dead in its tracks. Its contemporary black design is sleek and versatile, effortlessly complementing any interior décor.

The wall-mounted fire is a stylish and modern fire with finished MDF mantle and plinth and mirrored toughened glass front. The prop allows you to position the Fireplace Plug without having to touch the sooty fireplace interior.Besides guarding against rainwater and pesky wildlife entering your home through the chimney opening, adding a spring-loaded or lock-top chimney cap eliminates blustering downdrafts.

The fire has a stone, crystal and log fuel bed display with realistic flame effect options and adjustable LED colour and brightness. If you desire a longer-lasting solution to stop draughts, pest infestation, and water leaks in your fireplace, a Chimney Draught Stopper is what you need. It serves as a stunning decorative piece, with the included matches and pebbles adding a touch of warmth and charm to the entire room. We do offer a bespoke Chimmey Sheep® service, so please get in touch with your chimney dimensions and we'll be able to provide you with a quote.

Think about how often you use your fireplace, how much heat is escaping and if your fireplace has a draft stopper before selecting which type of fireplace draft stopper to use. A closed fireplace does the reverse during the summer, so your air conditioner doesn’t have to work as hard. The plastic Chimney Balloons can be blown up manually and are inserted into the throat of the chimney. Following the steps above, you can seal the damper with a similar DIY plug as the fireplace opening plug described. You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice.
