A Chimney Sheep – The perfect answer for a draughty chimney!
It is estimated that around £50 of warm air is lost up the chimney each year – for households with more than one open chimney in their property, this number can be significantly higher.
While you may not notice any cold draughts coming down on a mild day, during the winter months two things are happening which impact your energy bills. Not only does the the warm air produced by your central heating system rise up and out of the chimney; cold air travels unimpeded down it, producing really cold draughts that quickly cool down a room.
The chimney sheep is a 100% sheep wool product designed to keep warm air in your house and cool draughts out! It is just about the only truly sustainable chimney draught-proofing solution out there.
Why not block a chimney using newspaper?
Sure, blocking a chimney with newspaper is definitely cheap, but there are two issues with doing so. The first is that it creates a real risk of chimney fires if the paper is forgotten and the fire is lit. The second is that if rain comes down the chimney, it makes the paper wet and normally the paper just falls out as a big messy mulch.
The best chimney draught excluder
The Chimney Sheep is something we rate pretty highly. Firstly because sheep wool doesn’t burn, it self-extinguishes due to the moisture held within the wool fibres. Secondly, the Chimney Sheep is mess-free and can be removed easily if you want to use the fire at any point. We offer all sorts of different shapes and sizes so that you can find a sheep to fit your exact chimney, ensuring a snug, draught-free fit!
You can insulate your loft, floor and walls as much as you like but your home will never be completely efficient until the chimneys are blocked. The natural and sustainable Chimney Sheep allows you to temporarily block cold draughts – perfect if the fire is still used from time to time.
