    Mobile home owners know that getting outside air for combustion is a must for proper wood stove operation. In fact, this Drolet Fresh Air Kit is required if you want to operate a Drolet 1400-I model wood stove in a mobile home.

    The kit allows you to get air from outside the home rather than from the room where the stove sits. This is not only perfect for mobile home dwellers, but also for any homeowner with negative air pressure problems inside the home. Use a fresh air kit to get the combustion air you need to keep your Escape 1400-I working efficiently and safely.

    Will this work for a Drolet Escape 2100 Wood Stove?
    1 Answer
    Yes, this 5" kit would work, as the Escape 2100 utilizes 5" fresh air intake. This kit would also fit this unit.

    What does this add on do, exactly?
    1 Answer
    The fresh air kit pulls additional outside air into your home to aid in combustion. This item can be helpful for homes with very tight construction, or pressure related issues.

    Could this be used to pull in fresh air from the ground level to a fireplace insert in the basement?
    1 Answer
    Used in conjunction with an insulated flex pipe, this kit can indeed be used to pull combustion air from a basement or crawlspace.

    Increased Draft
    I experienced an increase in my draft from installing the kit, although I am still getting smoke rollout every so often in my fireplace even with this kit. But the draft is better than what is was and makeup air is definitely there.
    Pros
    • Increased Draft
    Cons
    • Did not completely solve smoke rollout issues

    Fresh air kit
    This kit gives you most of what you need. If it came with the hose it would be a good deal. the louver is plastic and has a screen in it. The part for hooking at the stove is steel and will work but you may want to know it is oblong to cut height down.
    Pros
    • It gives you some parts that you can use to get the job done with.
    Cons
    • cheap made, no hose included.
