Stop cold drafts instantly with draft stopper

Brrrrrrr. Isn’t a fireplace supposed to keep you warm???

Stop valuable warm air from leaving your home and minimizing drafts from your fireplace home in Springfield, VA Some heating experts claim that an unlit fireplace with a damper open can increase heating costs by as much as 30 percent.

Now that could add up to $500 over the course of a season.

We researched and found the most useful information on a draft stopper you can find anywhere…..

If you have a fireplace then you have a draft (draft= heat being sucked out of your home up the chimney) This raises your utility bills and decreases your comfort. We can flip that on its head and raise your comfort while decreasing your energy bills.

The Large  Fireplace Plug Draft Stopper is an inflatable urethane .

It is installed in the fireplace just below the damper level. The Chimney Draft Stopper can be adapted to work in almost all fireplaces. Even if you have an unusual construction.

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

There are several possible causes of feeling cold air from a wood fireplace.

You will want to make sure the damper is closed. Also check the installation manual for any other potential openings that may need to be shut.

If the fireplace is mounted on cement versus plywood, that can also transfer cold into your home. If the chase area or doghouse is not insulated adequately, that is another possibility.

Please check with your builder or installer on the insulation of the chase.

Chimneys work hard funneling and and pumping dangerous smoke and gasses out of your your home. This keeps your home safe when your gas logs are running and a fire is lit.

Now, when your fire is not lit this is the easiest escape route for warm air in your home.

How can you tell if you have a drafty fireplace? Is their cold air in your fireplace? Do you have drafts at your windows and doors? Do even the smallest gaps have powerful drafts? We can all agree that this will be very costly.

Heating costs are going straight up. Keep your warm air inside your home, keeping your comfortable and your electric bills down which is very important.

Stop that warm air from going straight up your chimney and start saving money now.

Keep the heat in your home with a draft stopper professionally installed to seal cold air out of your home.

Imagine stopping those cold air drafts in your home instantly? Well you can with a draft stopper damper or installed in your chimney by Nice Heating & Air

“Service was outstanding from the time of arrival which you could track arrival time live on a website link they send you so you know when they will arrive. Technical knowledge was very high, quick and efficient Kyle and his partner both handled the install of a Sensi Predict as if it was a walk in the park. I highly recommend Kyle from Nice Heating & Air for all HVAC issues and for new installs, him and his team are an amazing company and will think of them first if any issues arise in the future for sure....”

“Rolando Medrano was very professional and followed the CDC protocol of 6 feet social distance and had a mask and put disposable shoe covers before entering the house. He made sure to address all of our issues and provided answers for all our questions. He came on time and called before he came to update on timing and his status! He was a great help!”

“Highly recommend Nice Home Services for your HVAC needs. Have been member of their annual maintenance plan for three years now and been extremely pleased with their approach to business. They are professional, knowledgeable, and relatable. The service specialists take their time to fully diagnose the issue and explain the situation in a way that is easy to understand. Never had an instance where they try to push product and instead look for ways to recommend how to save you money. Need anything done on your home's HVAC, call the folks at Nice Home Services and know you're making the right choice.”

Richard Nowinski.

“Dionte and his helper (Josh) did a superb job with the installation. The result is both functional and as cosmetically pleasing as the ideal water heater installation can be. They were VERY careful moving the old one out and the new one in so as to assure no damage was initiated neither to the heater nor to our dwelling. He explained his intended design prior to execution and executed it flawlessly. This was followed by a comprehensive explanation of the functional options available through the control panel and Ipad app. Cleanup at conclusion of the install was appropriate and comprehensive. This team represented both Nice Heating and Rheem VERY positively!”

“I can't speak highly enough of this company. I requested an appointment, and it was scheduled for the next day. The technician was polite, honest, and a pure delight to work with. He didn't try to overcharge or tell me to replace something I didn't need to. He made service recommendations that were in line with industry standard prices so I could make an informed decision as he went about his service visit. Would recommend and will be using them again in the future. ”
