    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.

    Remote control and blower fan kit

    Posted by Tom Valdez on 30th Nov 2022

    Installation was quick and easy. Syncing the remote with the fan controller and flame adjustment was ok. Blower was louder then expected, anything over the 1 setting seems too loud but it does dispense the heat into the room well.

    Blower packaging

    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.

    Heat and Glo unit

    Posted by John on 10th Mar 2022

    Our 2010 fireplace needed this badly. All the parts were there. The instructions were clear and correct. The fan has a magnetic base to hold it in place and runs quietly on high speed.

    review blower

    Posted by Jan-Gerrit Bouwman on 14th Feb 2022

    The blower is great but our fireplace with the blower on does not blow much heat so it feels like it is a waist. Not sure of what to do but blower works fine
