    Fireplace blower

    Posted by Ron Ustruck on 16th Dec 2019

    Love it. Very easy to install (be sure to wipe up any dust/debris in the area where it is installed). Quiet. Only sound is moving air; not, the motor itself. Customer Service with MyFireplaceBlower is easy and friendly.

    Not all prewired as claimed did not connect too easy and directions were vague
    MyFireplaceBlower Response: Hi Grace thanks for your order! The cord set is pre-wired, but for Heat & Glo there is a specific Junction Box for an Outlet which requires the wires to be plugged into certain ports for the circuit to be complete. We assemble everything as much as possible for this Heat & Glo cord set/Blower kit. Our Heatilator GFK-160A Design Version has all wires connected together.

    replacement blower motor for my fireplace

    Posted by Joseph Melluso on 26th Mar 2019

    This unit is by far one of the better made units, I have ordered others and they were so loud before I even installed them in the fireplace cavity. It is so quiet and smooth running very nice unit.

    GKF-160 Blower

    Posted by D Billings on 4th Mar 2019

    Should have installed this blower long ago. Makes the fireplace so much more than something to look at. Used a small fan and ceiling fan combination before, what in the heck was I thinking? This is so much better!

    GTK-160A Blower Kit

    Posted by Scott on 5th Jan 2019

    Just installed our new GTK-160A Kit. I can't believe we went years without one of these. Had always used the ceiling fan to circulate the heat. How dumb was that.
    The kit was simple to install, took about 15 minutes and it works like a charm.Took about five minutes for the sensor to heat up and kick on. Love the speed control and the fact that it is quite.
    Dad just got some serious cool points with our new GTK-160A Blower.
    Warm winters ahead!!!!!

    Easiest installation ever. No tools required. Good instructions. Magnetic mounting parts are the best.
