    My tech raves about this fan kit! He likes that it's a complete kit with all the included components, and that it physically fits most fireplaces.

    Product was received as stated in the add. Easy to install though a bit tight getting it under the fireplace box which is no fault of the manufacturer of the blower. Would recommend to a friend.

    Fireplace Blower Review GFK-160A

    Posted by Mike on 30th Jan 2023

    The team at My Fireplace Blower were helpful selecting the right blower for my fireplace. The representative also sent me a copy of the fireplace blower user manual. When the blower arrived, it included excellent instructions and I was able to install the unit with no issues in about 30 minutes. The unit worked right the first time and is quieter than other blowers we have had in the past. I would recommend the blower and My Fireplace Blowers.

    Blower works great as does the remote. Paper instructions for the remote were not very clear, but the installation video made it very easy. Bothe very easy to install.

    GFK 160A Fireplace Blower

    Posted by Neil on 5th Dec 2022

    The model with the thermostat and variable speed is excellent. This was purchased to replace a noisy one speed fan that was so loud that we could not use the fire at all. This is very quiet at the lower speeds and not terrible at high ones. Needless to say the fire is alight every day and the room is nicely warm.

    Perfect and simple to install

    Posted by KML on 30th Nov 2022

    Unbeknownst to us, the fan wasn't working in the fireplace when we moved in. I bought this replacement with the full kit and it was easy to install and works great (previously only fan installed without sensor). Not a lot of noise, we barely notice it turning on.

    Blower packaging

    Posted by Flame Pro Tech Services Inc. on 11th Mar 2022

    Normally the blowers I order come individually boxed. That is the best way for me because I keep blowers in stock for customers. This time the blower came boxed with the rest of my order and now I have no box to inventory it in.
