    Well Made

    This is a very well-made Fireplace Blower. It has actually turned the fireplace into a heater instead of a picture. Very happy with this product.

    Fireplace Blower Fan

    Posted by Unknown on 7th Mar 2022

    After we ordered the blower fan for our gas fireplace insert, we found the instructions fairly easy to follow (not being electricians) and installed with no snags. It works well!

    Simple and effective

    Posted by Todd on 22nd Jan 2020

    Easily saved myself half the hardware cost and no service call requiring missed work. Installed in 30-45, taking pictures and cleaning up as I went. Now I'm enjoying warmth and it worked perfectly! Overhead fans are already jealous

    Gas fireplace blower

    It took about 3 days to receive and about 30 minutes to install. Works like a charm. And the price was great as well.

    Blower Kit Install GFK-160B

    Posted by Jvdben1 on 5th Mar 2018

    This project took me 20 minutes and works fantastically! The directions were extremely clear and easy to follow and were dead on to my model type. I saved over $450.00 by doing this myself and my neighbors are all asking me to help them with theirs as well. This device makes a huge difference in heat distribution and energy savings. I have been running without a hitch for over 2 weeks. Buy it now, I promise you won’t be disappointed!

    Quiet and functional, easy install

    Posted by Unknown on 30th Dec 2017

    This blower is great. Fan is quiet and it has 4 speed settings to choose from. High quality motor. Magnetic feet makes installation super simple. Wiring is very easy to do and the instruction is clear. I finished the installation in 15 minutes.

    I rate this much better than the A model. It does not require a thermocouple but rather sets a time to turn fan on and off before and after ignition. It also has an off position, and 4 speeds. Installation is pretty easy. I'm not a contractor so it was the only install I've done.
