Our GFK4B Blower Fan Kit is designed for Heatilator and other fireplaces to circulate air around the firebox and enhance heat output. This complete fireplace blower kit offers a low cost solution to push heat created by the fireplace into your living space.

A speed control module with timer circuit is included with the blower kit which automatically turns the fan ON / OFF at preset times and is equipped with a Speed Button to provide a quiet airflow at the desired speeds. The timer circuit will delay fan operation; by automatically turning ON the fan 7 minutes after the main flame has been turned ON (After the fireplace has warmed up) and turning the fan OFF 12 minutes after the main flame has been turned OFF (After the fireplace has cooled down).

    Works well

    Posted by BobS on 2nd Mar 2021

    My blower/remote combo has been installed for about one week. They seem to do the job, both are fairly easy to install, the blower is reasonably quiet, and both come with a good price. The big upside to the purchase is the blower and remote bundled together was about $2,000 and labor…than having the job done by a local technician---really! The only down side so far is shipping time is a little slow.

    Blower for my heatalator

    Posted by Richard Brisco on 18th Jan 2021

    What a game changer. Finally getting some real heat from my fireplace. 170 deg coming out of the top of the vent. Between the video and paper instructions, install was relatively easy. With fan level at 2 it’s barely audible, esp. if the tv is on. Definitely recommend.

    Great Product, Easy to install

    Posted by John D. on 2nd Dec 2019

    I purchased this blower motor for our gas fireplace, part arrive in 4 days. I read through the very detailed direction and those were easy enough. I started the install, took about 30 minutes to install, everything needed came with the assembly. I would recommend this product and company , definitely will reorder if anything is needed in the future

    Great blower

    Recommend clarifying step 5b2 of the instructions. Having never used a piggy back connector before, I was confused. Great customer service.

    Works well. A little difficult to fit but with some twisting and turning it finally went in. The rest was easy.

    Easy Installation

    Posted by John on 5th Feb 2019

    This blower was as advertised. Everything you need is included. The online video and instructions were easy to follow, even for me. Took me about 20 minutes.

    Functions as advertised. We were able to put the control against the bottom front of the fireplace with the connection wires being barely visible. This eliminates having to remove the screen whenever we want to change fan speed. I will say that the fan does make some noise which is why we give it a 4 star rating.

    I called customer service prior to ordering. They helped me identify the type of Heatilator unit I have. The blower was easy to install. I had no problems and it works great.
