    just installed my blower

    Posted by Unknown on 24th Jan 2018

    This was a very simple install and makes my Heat & Glo unit heat much more evenly. We are enjoying our unit more now with the nice even distribution of heat in the room. I tired one unit and now I am going to do another one since it turned out so great.

    Works lovely

    Warms the entire first floor in my ranch home. Variable speed makes even better. So glad I bought this fan, gets pretty cold in Colorado during winter time.

    I read many reviews on the numerous blowers and purchase this one. It’s not the least expensive unit and I thought it would be a quality. It was easy to install but does not move much air on the slower speed and is very noisy at the higher speed. For the money I expected more.

    Will fit in almost all fireplaces, not just heat n glo. This is a strong and dependable blower. Not just a noise maker.

    Best Motor for the money

    Posted by David L Mastin on 29th Nov 2016

    This blower motor is very quiet when running. It is balanced well so it will not rattle the sheet metal in the prefab fireplaces. This blower will fit in most any direct vent or ventless fireplace. The thermostatic switch will even work in ventless fireplaces, just reach in and slide it up the side wall far as you can reach. Drill hole through bottom louver to mount variable speed switch.... This is the only one I buy...
