Great Customer Service easy to install!

So we have been in the market for a blower/ fan for out Heat & Glo fireplace insert that was already installed in our new home we purchased 2 years ago. The prices the installers want here in CT were pretty high and made us feel it had to be installed by a professional. So $270 for the fan and $125 to install... OUCH.... So I searched the web and came across a video on youtube on how to install a fireplace blower. I watched it several times and could not believe how it easy he made it look. When he came to the part telling me that the fan was all pre-wired and just slide it in, magnet the sensor and plug it in I was hooked! Fireplaceblowersonline prices will not be beat and the customer service is top notch! Even on a Sunday they respnded to my emails with questions I had. Now to the install... it was so easy!! The hardest part was getting it in without the little rubber legs falling off but I knew they had to come off for certain installs. Once it it was in the back, I stuck the sensor on the bottom of the fireplace and plugged it to the outlet already installed underneith my stove. Turned it on and 5-10 mins later the fan kicked on and was warming the room!!! So if you are in the market for a fan, dont look any further, the product is as described, it shipped free and fast and the customer service is top notch! Thanks guys for all the help....

GFK-160 & Heat 'n Glo - Perfect Match!

Like Tom in CT, our home came with a Heat 'n Glo gas log. We've been in this home for about eight years. The convective flow of hot air out of the fireplace was pretty good adding heat to the living room on cold mornings. Still I felt we could extract more heat with a blower. But I had some questions regarding the fit of this blower kit, etc. Well, the guys at FireplaceBlowersOnline.com answered all my installation questions quickly and graciously. So I placed my order, and it was not long before the GFK-160 showed up on my front porch. Opened the box and was pleased with the high quality of this blower unit. Very well made. The installation was quite simple, but I took time to thoroughly clean the whole fireplace while I was in the mood. Once installed and the fire started it took about 5 minutes for the blower to kick on. Set the speed at about half which is a nice compromise between air flow and noise level. Now on cool NC mornings the fireplace heats not only the living room but we get a strong convective flow to the second floor lessening the run time on the heating system there to warm the home. This will prove to be a good investment as we heat here with two heat pump systems which greatly degrade in efficiency when outdoor temps drop below about 35 degrees. Excellent product and great service - much appreciated.

Wow!

This was as easy as the video claims! The blower came as promised and it only took me about a half an hour from start to finish to have it completely in. I found that removing the access door at the bottom of my fireplace made things a little easier. All I had to do was figure out which way to move the existing wires so that they wouldn't get hung up on the blower. Also, you might want to keep an eye on the rubber feet because they tend to fall off while initially trying to put the blower in and there isn't much room to try and put them on once the blower is in. I have to admit that I lost one of mine, I think that it may have fallen down a little crack in the fireplace. But I simply used a piece of cardboard to level the blower and that fixed it. I also did have a bit of a problem figuring out my power supply. At first the existing outlet in the bottom of my fireplace did not work. I was reluctantly going to just use a drop cord from a nearby outlet in my living room and settle until I could afford to call in an electrician. But then I realized that there was a light switch right beside the switch that turned on the fireplace. It seems as though the builders previously wired a switch that would control the blower, so when I turned it on the receptacles had power. I merely tucked in all of the wires and enjoyed my fireplace. I'm a little disappointed in the heat distribution but I have an open floor plan. All that being said I'm very pleased with my purchase, THANKS FIREPLACEBLOWERSONLINE.COM!
