    Looked around and read reviews for various models. This ll”looked” to be a much better quality fan than the others. It was a little bit more expensive but well worth the few extra dollars. Easy to install and instructions were pretty good and not difficult to follow. I would highly recommend this fan.

    Fireplace blower for Heatilator fireplace

    Posted by Carol Pharr on 24th Dec 2018

    It was a lot harder to install than other reviewers had said but the people at My Fireplace Blower provided excellent technical support and were just wonderful to work with. Once my friend finally got the blower installed, it works great.

    GFK4B Fan Kit

    Posted by Tom Frank on 29th Nov 2018

    The fan kit was pretty easy to install. My gas connection was on the left side with the fireplace controller electronics module on the right. There would have been a little more room to maneuver the fan unit on the left, but I didn't want to disconnect the gas supply if I didn't have to. After moving the existing wiring to the sides, I was able to get the fan unit into the fireplace with a slow, methodical, turning and turning the fan unit as I slowly guided past obstructions. Once it was in place, the wiring was straight forward and simple based on the instructions that came with the unit. Perhaps I was lucky, but my Heatilator fireplace had a small pre-drilled hole in the metal bottom near each front corner where the two ground wires from the fan kit could be easily screwed into place.connect .

    The fan works very well, although the fan noise is a bit more than I like at it two highest settings, so I just run it in the second lowest speed, which seems to be adequate for the where I live. At least I know there is some reserve capacity if it got really cold and I want more room heating.

    I'm very pleased with the quality and performance of this fan kit.

    Product works exactly as described. Installation was straight forward as detailed instructions were provided with the product. Wish I would have purchased one of these sooner.

    Blower kit

    Posted by Peter on 3rd Sep 2018

    Easy install. Louder than expected but has multiple speed settings so I slowed it down to reduce the noise. I have heard from others these don’t last long and get louder and squeaky after a while. Time will tell so can’t give it 4 stars yet.

    Easy install, detailed instructions and videos

    Posted by Marshall on 19th Jan 2018

    I went with this brand because it had the exact model of my gas fireplace, they had installation videos and included EVERYTHING needed to get the job done. I had this finished in less then an hour. That includes cleaning out the dust and carefully reading the instructions!

    Good product

    Posted by Unknown on 16th Jan 2018

    I recently installed the GFK4B fan kit on our gas fireplace. It now allows me to get more heat into the room instead of sending it all out the chimney. It is a quick and easy installation and works as advertised. The only negative feedback I can give is I feel the fan is a little noisy It it was quieter I would have given it 5 stars
