The Fireplace Plug: A Draft Stopper For Your Chimney

  Subscribe to FREE newsletter  Mar 15, 2016

AMAZING!! The energy bill at John Bristol?s Chevy Chase home fell by $722 over seven months after he installed a pair of $55 Battic Door Fireplace Plugs!

As seen in the Washington Post, Chicago Daily Herald, Bangor Daily News, The Alliance to Save Energy, The Columbia Daily Tribune, The Philadelphia inquirer, The Philadelphia Daily News, The New London, CT Day, and many more!

The Large Fireplace Plug is an inflatable urethane plug measuring 38" x 16". It is quickly and easily installed in the fireplace just below the damper level.

The Fireplace Plug can be adapted to work in almost all fireplaces. Even if you have an unusual construction, the Fireplace Plug can be successfully installed in less than 2 minutes.

The Fireplace Plug is provided with 5 "slittable" areas that can be cut to provide an opening for a damper handle. As the Plug is inflated it seals around the damper handle sealing the opening!

Here are 3 tips that should assist you with a fast and easy install for our large plug:

  • Lower the air pressure so the plug is not hard. If you put in too much air it will become stiff and could create gaps. The plug should seal all gaps and conform to the shape of the fireplace.
  • Lower the pole and install in a "V" not a "^". After you insert it tuck the front and back up. Then add a little more air so it seals.
  • Please note that it is not always necessary to make a slit to accommodate the damper handle. Trial fit the plug first without making any slit for the damper handle. If the damper handle is in the way, open the damper to move the handle, or remove the handle temporarily.
