GFK21B - GFK21 Blower Kit Installation Instructions
Posted by Mike on 4th Dec 2014
This blower is just what I needed. Somewhat challenging to install if you already have the piping and wiring to the fireplace installed, but not impossible - I did it myself. Blower works well, helps distribute heat out of the firebox, and is not that loud. It can be heard though, if there is no other noise in the room. I have it set on a lower setting as not to blow out all the heat at once. It does take a bit to activate the sensor to kick the motor on, so be patient. The blower runs a while after the fireplace is off too, this is normal. Good Product for the money. It was twice as much at the fireplace shop.
