Wood-burning fireplaces add warmth and ambiance to any room. To increase heat efficiency, many people prefer to install a blower that pushes the warm air from the fireplace into the room. 

The fan is usually located underneath the fireplace floor in the backside. The fan draws cool air in from the bottom vents and heats it up inside before being forced out into the room at the top. 

Beyond Radiant Heat
A wood-burning fireplace without a blower relies on radiant heat to warm a space. That means that only the area close to the fireplace will be warm. By installing a blower, you’re pushing warm air further into the space. This is a simple and easy way to transform your fireplace into an effective heating source that can reduce your energy costs. 

A fireplace blower can be added to most existing wood-burning fireplaces. When shopping for a blower, you just need to make sure to purchase a model that is designed for your fireplace fuel-type and that it will fit inside your fireplace.

Benefits of adding a fan to a wood-burning fireplace:

  • Quiet and effective way to heat a space
  • Comes with an adjustable thermostat that can help maintain a comfortable temperature
  • Will work with or without a fireplace door 
  • Models available to fit most wood-burning fireplaces

It’s important to know that a fireplace blower requires electricity to work, so if the power goes out, the blower won’t work unless you have back-up power.
