With the winter season approaching, everyone inside the house looks for a warmer place to sit. The fireplace alone may not be able to provide enough warmth in the entire room for everyone to feel comfortable and hence a fireplace blower would be needed to spread it across the room in the desired direction. This can be done with the help of a fireplace blower insert attached to the fireplace.
The blower consists of a fan that blows the air in the desired direction. The blower’s fan can start on its own when signaled by a thermostat at a preset temperature. This feature saves energy by turning on the blower when the room is warm enough.
The fans speed can also be controlled from a dial control. This enables the users to set the speed as per their heating needs. Faster fan speed means more heat will be circulated in less time and hence the room becomes warm soon.
As the fireplace blower works on electricity, it is imperative that it will need some wiring for the electric supply. The wiring needs to be heat resistant as the blower is kept alongside the fireplace. When buying a blower proper attention should be paid on the wiring to avoid any unnecessary expenditure.
The blower is dependent on the fireplace to effectively propagate the heat it generates. The blower itself does not generate any heat and hence if the fireplace is unable to produce sufficient amount of heat then the blower may not be as useful. » Read more: Fireplace Blower – Blow The Heat!
