"Hi, this is Terry with FireplaceBlowersOnline.com. Another common question we recieve is 'I don't know what FBK kit to buy'. And the FBK kits include the FBK-100, FBK-200, and FBK-250. Now, we're showing the FBK-100. The FBK-100 needs to have a wall switch designated for the blower only. The FBK-100 comes with a power cord, mounting bracket, noise reduction pad and it's a single speed. So the fan is going to run at a constant speed. The FBK-200 is the same config as the FBK-100, accept it includes a variable speed control and a wall mounting plate. And again, with the FBK-200, you need to have a wall mount switch dedicated to the blower only. If you don't have a wall switch for the blower, you need to go with the FBK-250. The FBK-250 comes with a variable speed control in it's own box, that will set in the firebox compartment. The FBK-250 also has the thermo disc, which is the thermo sensor that turns the blower on and off at pre-set temperatures. So, to clarify. The FBK-100 and FBK-200 are units that you're going to look for if you have a wall switch that is dedicated for the blower only. If you don't have a wall switch that is dedicated to the blower only, you need to order the FBK-250."
