Chimney Balloons?

I searched for posts on this but could not find any...

Are chimney balloons worth the money?

I have a zero clearance style fireplace that I never use. It does seem colder near the unit.

Chimney Balloon as a fireplace damper

I have a Chimney Balloon in my zero clearance fireplace with a 9" metal tube chimney. I put it in there to stop the smoke smell that I was getting from the fireplace in the summer.
I bought it because it was cheaper than getting parts for my damper that was in pretty bad shape.
It is a little more of a procedure to take it in and pull it out than my fireplace damper was, but it stops the smell better than my damper did and it is not cold by the fireplace anymore in the winter. I only use the fireplace a couple of times each year anyway.
