Customer Questions & Answers
By Al from Klamath Falls, OR on October 17, 2015
I want to use this Vantage Hearth squirrel cage manual variable speed blower on an Empire Keystone Deluxe B-vent louvered gas fireplace 34". Although this blower listed above is operated by a manual control is it also thermally activated to turn on and off when the fireplace is started and turned off. Would this work for my fireplace?
By Will M. on October 19, 2015

Answer:
This blower is not the listed blower for your Empire Keystone 34" model. You will need the Empire FBB-4 Variable-Speed Fireplace Blower with Temperature Switch - FBB-4.

By Kathleen from Bellevue, WA on December 3, 2014
Could this item provide heat independently or does the heat source solely come from the fireplace?
By eFireplaceStore on December 3, 2014

Answer:
This fan is designed to circulate the heat produced by the fireplace while it is burning, but it does not have its own heating element. As such, it cannot provide supplemental heat on its own.

By Tom from OK on November 19, 2015
I have a Superior VCT3036 newly installed in my home. Is this Vantage Hearth squirrel cage manual variable speed blower kit the "BK" model that is meant for that fireplace?
By Chris C. on November 19, 2015

Answer:
The BK model blower is indeed one of the applicable models for your VCT3036. Additionally, this model can also accept the thermostatically controlled BKT Blower.

By West from Seattle, WA on July 30, 2014
Could you please provide some dimensional information on this product? I've looked at the manual and it provides none.
By eFireplaceStore on July 31, 2014

Answer:
Per the manufacturer, this blower measures 4 inches by 4 inches by 12 inches overall.

By John from New Jersey on December 17, 2012
Can this blower be used with American Hearth direct vent fireplaces?
By Tyler M. - Fireplace Specialist on December 17, 2012

Answer:
Unfortunately, no. This blower is only tested and listed for use with select FMI, DESA and Vantage Hearth fireplaces.

By Ted from Cincinnati, OH on October 6, 2014
Does this work with vent free gas log sets in a firebox of an existing fireplace? Also, does it need a cover or is a cover included?
By eFireplaceStore on October 7, 2014

Answer:
This is manufactured for installation in the enclosed compartment of a prefabricated fireplace and cannot be installed within an existing firebox. If you have a prefabricated fireplace, it may have provisions for a blower, however masonry fireplaces cannot utilize a blower with vent free gas logs.

By Steve from Memphis,Tenn. on November 3, 2011
How does it install and work?
By Collin C. on November 3, 2011

Answer:
This blower will install in the bottom of Vantage Hearth fireplaces, beneath an access panel in the floor. The blower will draw cool air through the bottom louvers on the face of the fireplace, then circulate the air around the back of the unit and out the top louvers. The heat from the chassis of the unit allows the air to be warmed substantially. The blower control will have long enough wiring to mount the control on the face of the unit. It has a variable control knob that will activate the blower and control the speed. It functions much like a light dimmer.

By Tony from Florence, SC on April 30, 2015
How many CFM's of air does this Vantage Hearth squirrel cage blower kit move?
By Brennan W. on April 30, 2015

By Keith from Farmington Hills, MI on September 23, 2014
What's the CFM on this blower?
By eFireplaceStore on September 23, 2014

Answer:
Per the manufacturer, the measured CFM on this model is 75.

By Josie from Fredericksburg,Texas on January 16, 2013
Will this blower work or fit in a Forester Fireplace insert? The blower that is in there now does not work anymore.
By Tyler M. - Fireplace Specialist on January 16, 2013

Answer:
We do not sell a blower made for your particular model, and all of our blowers are model-specific. We apologize for this inconvenience.

I would recommend this item to a friend.
This blower could not be mounted through the louvers as depicted and required a number of calls to determine an alternate mouting location. The fan seems to operate well.
