Installed in ten minutes.
Takes about 15-20 minutes for magnetic sensor to sense the desired temperature which allows fan to come on.
Fan decible level is about 65 with a sound level meter so you can hear the fan but you can control speed and hence the sound for quiter enviornment but it doesn't bother me, it's like white noise. It's like a pc fan running fast.
You can't really feel the breeze of the fan but with the small spider web on my grill I see the direction of the wind so I know there is air movement.
Feel the temperature change more at the higher level and less at the lower levels but I feel heat as I stand further away from the fan then before which is good as a safety issue, especially if you have kids and no protetion grill (no recommended).
My human temperature sensor (the wife) takes off the fireplace faster with the fan, so I know it must be working (ya right).
Overall it appears to be of very good build quality, judging on wiring gauge, casting of the fan and body, feel of the speed switch, plug and magnet temperature sensor. What I will do is obtain some air filters at the bottom of my FP so this can double as an air cleaner, why not. Enjoy!
