Q: Jason, Are there any restrictions in using the Chimney Balloon in areas of the country where temps in the summer exceed 120 degrees? We live in Arizona and the outside temperature gets very high. I imagine it is even hotter by the chimney top on the roof. I dont want my Chimney Balloon to burst from the heat. - KL
A: Hi KL, As long as the thermometer outside doesn't go past 180 degrees F your Chimney Balloon will be fine, but if that happens we will have other things to worry about.
All kidding aside... The Chimney Balloon is heat reactive. If someone accidentally lights a fire under it. At about 180 degrees F the balloon material is designed to burst and shrivels like a shrinky-dink, so it can get out of the way fast.But keep in mind your balloon is installed low in the chimney by the firebox. The balloon will be nice and shaded in there, so even if you roof temps get close to 180, that won't bother the Chimney Balloon. - Jason
