    • Blower for zero clearance fireplaces
    • Precise temperature control
    • Variable speeds
    Adding a blower to your fireplace improves its efficiency because the blower circulates the hot air farther and faster than simple diffusion. Thus you are able to heat a larger area using less fuel, making the operating of the fireplace more economical. This blower made by Napoleon is built especially for zero clearance fireplaces, is thermostatically controlled and uses a variable speed feature to adjust for temperature. This item is made with all the quality you expect from Napoleon products.

    from Binbrook, ONT asked:
    December 21, 2015
    Could I remove and replace this Napoleon B440-KT blower in my fireplace myself? I'm pretty handy.
    1 Answer
    While any issues that may arise from someone who is not technically qualified to install the blower would not be covered under any warranty and it is always recommended to have a legally qualified technician perform services like these, the installation is fairly straightforward.

    from Williston, ND asked:
    December 20, 2015
    I just moved in to a new home and found the books to the CDV36NTR Continental Fireplace and a paper for this Napoleon zero clearance Economy blower with variable speed and thermostatic control - B440-KT. I figured out how to light the fireplace, but can't get the blower to work. I checked to make sure it was plugged in and turned the knob several times. I can't get the blower to operate. What more can I do/look for? Plus it seemed a little hazy in the house after running the new fireplace for about 1/2 hour. Is this normal?
    1 Answer
    The odor and haziness is due to non-toxic paints and lubricants used during the manufacturing process and is expected during the initial "burn in" phase and will dissipate after a few hours. While the B440-KT is not the listed blower for this fireplace, it is very similar to the GZ550 in functionality and the installation would be roughly the same. If the blower has not cycled on after 10-20 minutes with the fireplace in operation and the thermal sensor is positioned properly per the installation instructions, I would check to make sure 120v was supplied by simply plugging in another corded device into the outlet supplying voltage for the blower. If voltage has been supplied, you will need to check each component in the blower circuitry after the blower, rheostat and thermal switch have been removed from the control compartment.

    What are the dimensions and CFM's?
    1 Answer
    This blower has a rating of 80 CFM. The manufacturer does not provide dimensions for this blower, as it is only tested and listed for use within select Napoleon gas fireplaces.

    from Canada asked:
    October 6, 2013
    I have a Napoleon direct vent fireplace in my basement. Is there a fan that I can install outside to help move the hot air? There is no air movement where the exhaust is, and the underside of my deck gets hot. I am looking for something to move the air.
    1 Answer
    Napoleon does manufacture a draft fan for direct vent fireplaces with long vent runs, but this fan is intended to primarily cure drafting issues and actually forces hot air upward from the exhaust, possibly making your scenario worse. Use of any other type of fan may cause enough turbulence that the unit could not operate properly. If the termination is far enough from the deck to be within code specifications, you may consider fabricating a heat shield to mount just below the deck. This will help to spread the heat further away from the termination and allow time for the exhaust temperatures to cool further.

    What is the difference between thermostatic control and temperature control?
    1 Answer
    Thermostatic and temperature control are interchangeable terms, in regards to blowers at least. Both descriptions indicate that the blower will have a thermal switch that will control its on and off temperature settings.

    Which blower kit do you recommend for a BDG/BCDV36?
    1 Answer
    Per the specifications for these units, the correct blower is listed as the Napoleon Blower Kit with Variable Speed and Thermostatic Control. This blower should offer proper fit and air output for this model of fireplace.

    from Orillia, Ontario asked:
    November 14, 2012
    I am planning to install a BGD34 natural gas fireplace in a 10 x 20 sun porch for use in Toronto from April to November only. I'm thinking for some nights this would suffice to take the chill off the room. Should I add the optional blower or will the fireplace provide adequate heat without it?
    1 Answer
    Assuming that the sun porch has fairly standard height ceilings (8-9 feet), you should not have any problems heating the space by use of only the fireplace. The unit has the capacity to heat an area roughly twice the size of the porch, and while the blower would help to circulate heat a bit more rapidly, the difference would be only barely noticeable.

    from Toronto ontario asked:
    September 1, 2012
    Will this blower fit my Napoleon gas insert model G13600? Is it a complete kit?
    1 Answer
    The Napoleon GI3600 gas insert comes directly from the manufacturer with a built in GZ552 blower system. This is a slightly smaller, wider version of the item in question. Generally, replacement parts can be ordered to replace any defective items in your insert. However, because Napoleon is a Canadian manufacturer and has licensing agreements in place, we are unable to ship directly into Canada. You would need to purchase a replacement GZ552 blower from a Canadian retailer. We could also ship to a U.S. address for you to take possession of the blower.

    I'm interested in a fan for a Napolean HD81? Would you please let me know if this one (or a different one) is applicable.
    1 Answer
    The B440-KT is not the correct blower for the HD81. However, the NZ64 is. You may find this blower here: Napoleon NZ64 Fireplace Circulating Blower Kit

    Can I just put this unit blower against the bottom outside part of my fireplace like you would a portable unit?
    1 Answer
    This blower is designed to be installed into the confined space of one of our Napoleon appliances. It is not intended to be used as a universal blower.
