    Works great with my Majestic Quartz Fireplace. Pushes out so much more heat than without it.

    Posted by Lee R on 26th Oct 2021

    Ordering was quick and easy. Received in a few days. Installed in 15 min. At 50% fan speed it's quiet and warms the room fast. So happy, I ordered another for the lower level fireplace!

    Quick and Painless

    Posted by Tara on 20th Oct 2021

    I searched long an hard for a blower that was compatible with our old Heat & Glo fireplace. This blower hit the jackpot. Shipping was extremely fast and most importantly my husband was able to install it under an hour. It went in easily and works great!

    Projects the fireplace heat!

    Posted by Major Simmons on 27th Mar 2021

    Fireplaces are beautiful, but useless if they do not heat the room. This blower does this and installs very easily and quickly (NOTE: View the installation directions in color).

    Updated review hum solved

    Posted by Richard on 17th Mar 2021

    My earlier review gave this 4 stars because of 60 cycle hum. I incorporated a "buck transformer" (see youtube link) of the voltage mentioned in the link with a 2 amp secondary. Viola! The hum has nearly disappeared. One must be sure the polarity of the output cancels part of the line voltage and the hot leg, not the neutral is "bucked". DO THIS AT YOUR OWN RISK. I make no comment or recommendataion regarding electrical standards.

    60 cycle hum

    Posted by Richard on 16th Mar 2021

    I like this fan, except for a 60 cycle hum that is mostly noticeable on low speeds. The ball bearings are really smooth. This draws 0.94 amp compared with my old fan at 1.15 amp. The old one is not very smooth, so I'm thinking the extra amps go into noise. Installing this was easy once I realized that I had to remove the fireplace glass front in order to get enough clearance to get it in the tight fitting opening.
