I received the fan kit very quickly and the installation instructions were very easy to follow. It took me about 15 minutes to install the fan, sensor, and speed control.
I removed one star for the Velcro one the back of the blower did not want to stick to the back of the fire box and it caused a vibration. I replace it with another Velcro strip that I already had and the problem went away.
The fan works great and really moves the warm air out for the fireplace. It is fairly quiet too. On the highest fan setting it sounds like low white noise. If the TV in the room is on, you cant hear the fan and the volume levels are the same on the TV as before.
The fan really helps take the chill off of the room.

The people are very knowledgeable and nice to work with. The transaction was fast as well as the shipping. The fan works well, is rather quiet - even on the highest setting were we run it (is nearly silent at lower speeds), and is quality all the way!

I had a fireplace insert at my old residence approx 10 yrs ago and the air was alot more forceful. It was louder than my new model but it heated a 400 square foot room in the heart of winter. Im not totallly dissatisfied with the product it does help but just not as much as I expected.
From: MyFireplaceBlower- Results vary depending on fireplace model and installation.
