Gas - Fan/Blowers


I have a fan kit on my gas fireplace, but it doesn't seem to blow much air. 
Your fan kit has a rheostat control (like a light dimmer). You can get more air from your fan by making sure the fan control is turned up to the desired level. The fan control can be found in the control area behind the lower louver of the fireplace, or on a wall switch with rheostat. We also provide optional remote controls which can control your fan speed from your favorite chair! Contact us to add a remote control. 

My fan kit is too noisy. What can I do? 
Our fan kits come with a rheostat control (like a light dimmer). You can turn the control down to reduce the air noise from your fan. The fan control can be found in the control area behind the lower louver of the fireplace, or on a wall switch with rheostat. We also provide optional remote controls, which can control your fan speed from your favorite chair! Contact us to add a remote control. 

Can I install a blower or fan kit on my fireplace after the fireplace has been installed? 
Many of our gas fireplace models that have louvers or grills on the front can have a fan kit added. You will want to make sure that electricity is run to the junction box underneath the fireplace first, before ordering & installing a fan kit. You can test the junction box by plugging a lamp into the junction box and switching it on and off. Also make sure the circuit breaker is not tripped. If there is no electricity to the junction box you would have to run electric to the fireplace first before the fan kit could be installed. Contact us to order a fan kit ; installation instructions are packed with it. 

Can I operate my fireplace with the fan off? 
Yes. 

Why will the blower not turn on right away? 
Most fans are wired into the fireplace with a fan sensor switch. This switch will activate the blower when the firebox heats up to a certain temperature. It will also automatically turn the blower off when the fireplace is turned off and the unit cools to a certain temperature. This sensor is provided so that you will not be circulating cold air in your home. The amount of time needed to heat up the fan sensor will differ depending on the model of your fireplace. It is common that blowers installed in Firebrick products will take longer to sense the heat and turn on your blower. Firebrick has greater insulating characteristics and holds the heat inside your firebox resulting in higher radiant heat and greater efficiencies.
