Q: We have a zero clearance fireplace manufactured by Majestic. I've tried another fireplace product which is supposed to fit at the top of the firebox to cover the flue. It did not fit properly because there are two metal "fins" that extend downward from the top of the firebox on either side of the flue. Does your product work with zero clearance fireplaces?
P.S. Was glad to read the question and answer about burning candles while the Chimney Balloon is in use. Thanks for the info!- TP
A: Dear TP, The Chimney Balloon does work with Zero Clearance fireplaces like the Majestic model you are referring to. As a matter of fact I am using a 9x9 Chimney Balloon in a Majestic Zero clearance fireplace in my own living room.
Since the Chimney Balloon is installed up into the flue you can get it up past these fins and inflate it into place. I would recommend though that you use an HEK extender with your Chimney Balloon, since the fins are so obtrusive in this model fireplace. Give us an email or a call if you have any more questions. - Jason
Followup: Just wanted to follow up to say that the 9x9 balloon fit my zero clearance perfectly. This has made a major difference in the drafts attributable to our fireplace. Thanks for a terrific product!- TP
Reply: Hi TP, Thank you for checking back with us. Im glad everything worked out so well for your application. It is a relatively simple fix with a Chimney Balloon. - Jason
