This was an upgrade for us as our previous fan had one speed and had to be plugged in and unplugged each time we used it. This one has been great so far (have been using it almost daily for a week or two). The fan speed dial is great because you can choose more air (and corresponding sound), or you can dial it down if you want. The fact that it can be wired into the fireplace was also a bonus for us. No more bending down and opening the front cover to plug in. Very satisfied!
Easy to install. Seems sturdy. Works well.
There is a bit of high pitch whine at high speed.
The fan is fairly easy to install but it doesn't move a lot of air. I expected more air flow. It does work though. It moves heat into the room.
Feel free to contact us to double check this blower is installed correctly and we can go through some trouble shooting techniques.
It works fine, quiet and blows the heat around very good. Well pleased!
Very pleased with entire procedure, from the time I ordered to the time of installation, everything went as promised. Everyone was very friendly and eager to help.
We have lived in our house for 17 years with a heatilator fireplace with a gas fired log.Finally bought an FK4 fan unit.It installed easily,operates quietly, circulates warm air with no problems.We are well pleased
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!
The blower was easy to install with little complication. It is quiet and works great.
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.
