Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 70435 Works, I think
I live In south east Louisiana,so it hasn't been very cold. As I type this it is 79 degrees in mid December. I think it will really help keep the heat from coming in the house in the summer.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by HHJR Not so sure it helps
It fit the factory fireplace flu, but I don't really know if it's stopping cold air fom coming down from the chimney and out the fireplace. I also installed magnetic strips over the heat-a-lator vents, plus put foam core across the fire box right behind the chain male draw screen to help insulate and stop drafts. That's approx. $100 total for questionable result.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Bonjour Effective but overpriced
This product is cleverly designed for its very specific purpose. The quality of the materials is good. I think it will give good service for several years. However, basically it is a heavy duty balloon on a stick. By comparison, there are modest power tools at the same price range (electric chainsaws, for example) which are far more complex and difficult to manufacture. Keep your expectations low.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by pam530 Great for keeping the cold air out
The balloon was suggested by Honeywell Home Energy Analysis person. Great benefits from having the home analysis from our gas & electric company. The draft coming from our gas fireplace kept our living cold.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Cheryl It works exactly as advertised!
I was sceptical when I saw the diagram included in the box. I followed the instructions for installation and it went smoothly. It works great! Even with my fireplace damper cosed and the glass doors closed, I could feel cold air in front of the hearth. There is no more cold air coming in after I inserted the fireplace plug.
