This is a quality product that came fully wired and ready for installation. Instructions were simple and easy to understand with good photos and diagrams. When seeking and ordering the correct unit, your customer service folks could not have been more helpful. I've already recommended you to others.
When I had a question as which one I needed for my particular fireplace it was answered within an hour of my inquiry. Prompt shipping when ordered and delivered incredibly fast. Awesome instructions that covered different brands but had my needed configuration perfectly pictured. It literally took me 5 min to get this installed and most of that was the tight fit and some tender loving persuasion to get it past obstructions, but obviously I ran into no issues. Highly recommend this product and company.
Great product and even better service! Thanks
I wanted to give it some time since my purchase to really try it out. It has been working great, and I like the variable speed insteadd of the original 2 speed. One issue was the mounting of the switch. Would have preferred being able to remove the knob and install through the original switch box on my insert. The velcro doesn't seem as secure. Overall, I'm pleased with this product and working with phone support.
installed within 5 minutes,vert easy.
This item works great and was a pretty easy install. I agree with others that on highest setting may be a bit too loud but easy to fix by not turning up so high. Also much easier to install if an electric outlet is already installed as was the case for me.
Easy order, great price, Fast shipping, easy installation.....all why I buy Online!!!!! % Star, easy to recommend !!! My Fireplace blower made this a great transaction!
After reading other reviews here I purchased this blower for our new Heatilator fireplace. Installation instructions were very helpful and easy to follow. The pictures and diagrams show you precisely where to put the parts and how to do it. Fantastic. Took me just 20 minutes and 5 of that was trying to squeeze the unit into the space underneath the firebox as our marble hearth was high enough to partially obstruct the standard opening. Buyers might want to measure that opening if they have a hearth in front of their fireplace unit to be sure this blower will fit through it. Once installed, connections were easy. Adjustable fan airflow is great. While audible at high speed it speaks to the power of the blower. Mid-range fan speed is more than enough to heat our great room with this unit and sound is barely detectable. Great product so far.
This is the only FP Blower I've ever purchased, and can't compare it to others, but this has met all my expectations--fair price, quick shipment, well-packed, easy to install, strong telephone customer support on installation questions, and very satisfactory performance in dispersal of heat.
I'd buy another product from the company without hesitation.
Note that there were some minor issues with the printed installation documentation not being as accurate as it should be, but the telephone support staff was/is exemplary--friendly, articulate, and extremely knowledgable about the product.
