How long will my balloons float with helium?
Because filling, tying, and usage of balloons is beyond our control, no performance or longevity guarantee can be made. Actual float times can vary depending on temperature and climate conditions as well.
Here are some good guidelines:
- A latex balloon filled with helium will float approximately one hour for every inch of your balloon. 9" balloon = 9 hours.
- A latex balloon with Hi-Float (item code BLHFTWP) and filled with helium will float up to three to five times longer as figured by the balloon size.
- A latex balloon with Ultra Hi-Float (item code BLTULT) and filled with helium will float up to 1 week.
- An average size Mylar balloon filled with helium will float approximately three to five days. Mylar balloons are also easily re-inflated. Hi-Float and Ultra Hi-Float are not intended for use with Mylar balloons.
